    Wish me luck.

    Spent 3.5 today with the fire hose on full force. Idle turns, step turns, plow turns, glassy water landings, emergency landings. Tomorrow a review and then the check.

    Yes! Indeed, have fun. It looks like a blast. Now I want to visit Florida.

    Good luck.

    Eddie, ask them how many float ratings they have given. Must be tens of thousands.

    Good luck!

    You'll do fine. I did a 2-day package rating a few years ago in ID and it was a great time.

    Been doing it there since 1963. It is a family operation with super people!

    Didn't get one but it wasn't bad. Their headsets truly suck and could be used as an alternate to water boarding.

    There's a well worn trail from Alaska to Brown's this time of year. Great way to enjoy some sun and fun.

    They stay booked about two months ahead. The J-3 was a hoot. No radios. Although some do have starters, they don't use them.

    I see why they are busy. The last friend that went really enjoyed flying one of their J-3s with a stroked C-85 on big Aqua floats. Did you do any partial power ops? What's the EW of the plane you flew?

    Didn't do partial power. I didn't keep the W&B I had to do but it was 900 hundred and something on Aqua 1500s. With 420 lbs of Pilots and 6 gals of gas, we had seven lbs to spare.

    Coolest thing was that I rarely looked at the airspeed indicator.

    I got my float rating there in 1995 and go back every time I can to do a refresher. Great bunch of people and always fun - and of course there’s Fantasy of Flight nearby with the big Short Sandringham to see. Good for you Eddie
