It’s sure been busy around here! We’re really getting into the season now, what with the weather (finally!) getting summery, and people wrapping up another school year. In the past week alone, we’re carried many proud graduates (and their even prouder moms and dads) on our Seattle scenic flights. We’ve also welcomed people from Germany, Austria, Mexico, California… and from right here in Seattle, too!
My friend Kirk came up from Colorado to take his ASES (airplane single-engine sea) checkride. Of course he passed Kirk has an interesting flying career: he flew helicopters in the military, and now flies a corporate jet. He came to us with an AMES (airplane multi-engine seaplane) rating, and he has several hundred hours in a Grumman Albatross. That’s cool!
Hey – if you’re stumped for ideas for Father’s Day, or for that special graduate in your life, how about a seaplane ride? A scenic flight, perhaps, or an introductory flight lesson? It’s a unique gift they’ll always remember!
Hope to see you around the Lake!
