Default Ahhh....Seaplanes again!

Cruising through the Weirs channel Sunday (Cruising? Um, CRAWLING) and saw the seaplane departing just past the channel. I breifly saw an add for the business, but I forgot what it said!

Anyone have information? Are the pilots CFI's??? Would love to put an hour or so of "SEA" in the logbook :-)

If it's the C-206 on amphibs, here's a link to a thread from last year. NB

To answer your question the owner/pilot Dave French is a CFI with thousands of hours in single and multi-engine seaplanes. You can call their business line at 603-387-7575 to ask if they do instruction or just scenic rides.

Nice advertisement there Brian... Pushing the rules a little here aren't you? How many times can you put your business name in front of me for free or do you have a commercial deal with the webmaster? If that's so, then it's totally acceptable and I apologize.

Ummmmm....isn't your screen name your business name? So, technically every time you post you are "putting your business name in front of me for free." Just sayin'.

Carefull, c-206 on floats is a float plane not an amphib. A Lake renegade or buccaneer is an amphib.

I think if you check real close, you will see "nose wheels" in the floats on that 206. So if the floats have wheels, that makes it an Amphib doesn't it..?

Amphibs can land on water with the wheels retracted..OR.. land on dry land (like an airport) with the wheels extended...No..?? NB

EDIT: Interesting recent history on Lake Aircraft: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Aircraft

They were made in Sanford, Maine -- now they are made in Kissimmee, Florida -- just a stone's-throw from Sanford, Florida.



I've got relatives in both towns, and it sure gets confusing!

Actually, Lake aircraft are no longer in production. There are making parts to keep them alive. Armand and Bruce will by old Lakers, refurbished them and sell them.
