Default Started a new adventure today

Well took on a new adventure today, now half way through my float endorsement... had a blast in a pa12 -150hp on straight floats today for 3.6hrs

It has to be the most flying I have ever done slightly out weighing mountain flying looking forward to another 3.5hrs tomorrow to finnish off

Just a few pics out front of the float base and our family cottage

Probably the most fun you can have with your pants on...

I did my seaplane rating at Jack Browns in Florida a few years ago. Definitely the most fun I've ever had flying! Congrats and enjoy!

If you are in AB, it's not that far to travel to Kelowna, I did my rating at Air Hart in 2011, and was happy with the training, they have a C180 and C172XP on straight floats.
