    I’m around next weekend, but it doesn’t look like a lot of folks are. The next Saturday I’m available is July 7th.

    I saw their schedule a couple of weeks ago and for some reason remembered incorrectly. I was trying to be funny but ... uh... major fail. :(

    You guys couldn't make it a state away and I went from VPC to Dallas, Tx and back today in a VFR airplane with a wood prop?

    I owe me a beer.

    Sucks you all had to cancel, but the good news is I should make next time.

    I flew up to KSRB (Sparta, TN) and it was perfect weather. Shot the ILS in but bases were still rather high. On the way home at 5pm I went VFR and was smooth sailing, 4.9 hours in the ol Cherokee today. I did see the storms off in the distance though.

    So the meet up happened, it was just Wayne and I at KLZU for breakfast. Then Wayne came down and checked out our youth projects and we chatted for a bit.

    Cool!

    $400/hr for a ride in what’s basically an old 172? Man, they know how to control their profit margins.

    Yea, you'd be much better off with the instruction rate. Still seems high for a 172, but I haven't priced any other float plane rentals. I think I might go do an hour one of these days.

    Seaplane Rental and Instruction
    Aircraft- $240/Hr Instructor- $55/Hr

    Pre-purchase block time at a discount!
