Another passion of Ken’s is travel; Ken has extensively traveled Europe and Great Britain. His travels have had a genealogical and historical spin to it. He has been fortunate enough to stand in places where his great, great, great, grandparents have been born, as well as locations of marriage. Being an amateur military historian Ken is a member of several military historical associations and lectures at these events. His travels have also involved Canadian European military history. Flying has supported Ken’s travel bug and he has personally flown his plane over most of British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon, Alaska, Washington State and Oregon. He tries to complete one big trip every year. A couple of highlights are flying to Alaska to fly the Alaskan highway to Fort St John. Also another is flying the Trans Canada highway through the Rockies. He thinks nothing of jumping into his plane and flying to places like 100 Mile House just to have breakfast.
Ken Welte loves photography, which is a great compliment to his passion for flying and travel.
