    Slightly off topic, but do any of the ADS-B systems have aural traffic alerts? If the two planes that collided near Ketchikan had aural alerting I suspect the accident wouldn’t have happened.

    The TVA allows floatplanes on its reservoirs. There are planes based on the lakes, but they are not as numerous as boats.

    I’m obliged to put in a plug for Tennessee. You mentioned being the old guy who teaches floats: Tennessee boasts a number of TVA reservoirs in the eastern half, and float operations are permitted. ...

    That’s pretty cool. Disassembling it must be a bit like archeology in the sense that you’re discovering things that nobody has seen in a really long time.
