Design your own seaplane training experience. A seaplane trip around northern Minnesota is a great way to earn your rating while getting a detailed look at how a seaplane can be used in day-to-day operations.

Adding a seaplane rating is a great way to meet the requirements for a flight review. It's fun, you'll learn new skills, add a rating and satisfy FAR 61.56 requirements for a flight reveiw.

If you already have a seaplane rating and would like a refresher course we'd love to work with you.
