Fly to Vernon for Lunch

Pilots looking for a “$100 Hamburger flight” can consider Vernon.  Often there will be members at the Flying Club to welcome you with a coffee or cold drink.  A short 15-minute walk brings you to Tim Horton’s, McDonalds, Subway and a pizza place.   Okanagan Lake is very close, with a large sandy beach and shady park, ideal for a sunny afternoon picnic lunch.
