Tuesday, June 13, 2017 Dinner Meeting and Program -- "Flying Seaplanes"
Written by Bette Gardner   
Friday, 12 May 2017
-- Approved by FAASafety for WINGS credit--

This presentation may inspire you to get a seaplane rating!

This evening we will learn about unique considerations for safely operating seaplanes, such as handling seaplanes in the water, choosing landing areas, using wind speed and direction information, how float planes make approaches and landings, and what it takes to earn a rating.

About our speaker: Gordon Mills, SES CFI, and his wife Sandy co-own and operate Alpine Aviation in Grass Valley, California. The company offers training, maintenance, charters and FBO services.

An FAASafety representative, Gordon has 12,000 hours of flight time with 6,000 hours of instruction. In addition to his SES CFI rating, he has his CFII, commercial, multi-engine and ATP ratings and he is a certified A&P. During the past 15 years Gordon and his staff have been flying and maintaining a wide variety of aircraft. He has a Lake LA-4-200 or Lake Buccaneer for seaplane training and operations.
