We're just about ready for one of the busiest weekends of the year.

On lakes around B.C., the August long weekend means wakeboards, jetskis, paddleboards and sailboats...and planes.

For pilots like Dave Stein, all that water traffic presents some challenges. He flies a float plane for Air Hart Aviation in Kelowna.

Daybreak host Chris Walker met him on the dock and went up for a ride.
