Friday Photo: Merry Christmas from a floatplane

My loving wife let me implement “my Retirement Plan” a little early and purchase this airplane this past fall. I raised two US Marines, hence the USMC mascot – and yes Rock has been flying as well for the past 8 years! I will be offering seaplane instruction soon.

Friday Photo: how many souls on board?

They don’t get much better than this Friday Photo. Pilot Chuck Tippett took his first selfie on the way to the beach with his two grandsons and the family dog. A 45-minute flight certainly beats a two hour drive, and the memories will last a lifetime. Rarely has the cockpit of a J-3 Cub looked better.
