Places to Fly – West: Vernon, British Columbia


While not an organized fly-in, the arrival of a new on-field eatery at an airport located in the heart of the Okanagan will surely prove to be a great fly-in attraction at Vernon’s airport.

Sky High Diner proprietor Patricia Murdock tells eFlight it took her and her husband two years to get approval to move onto the site on the edge of the main ramp, near the airport’s terminal building and the Vernon Flying Club building (visible in the background).

With tables in front of the diner, and other spots nearby where one can sit and eat, keeping a two-metre distance looks easily doable.

With 100LL selling for just $1.41, the burgers might even cost less than $100!
