On a stunning Vancouver day, there’s many ways to take in the beauty of the city. You can run the seawall, hop on a bike, or if you’re Reggie Morriset, you can take in the view from the air.
Morriset has been a pilot for 15 years, and has worked with Harbour Air for the past 10.
“When I’m flying over the mountains…and when I’m flying over Garibaldi Park when we’re flying towards Whistler…it’s hard to describe in words what we see out there. But every time we do that flight it’s just spectacular.”
Morriset says over the years he’s had his fair share of interesting experiences.
“I flew the Harlem Globe Trotters not too long ago…it was hilarious he sat next to me in the co-pilot seat and he really did have to fold himself in there. And he brought his basketball…and did take control of the airplane for a little bit.”
Although he’s flown in many different places across the country, Morriset says he keeps coming back to Vancouver, for the beauty of the city.
“It’s tough to leave here…we are very spoiled. A lot of it’s routine, there’s no doubt. But everyday we’re out there we’re still sticking our noses out the window, it’s still beautiful for all the pilots.”
