    Leigh is a particularly good stick who really understands planes. Someone who spends some time flying with him is bound to come out the better for it.

    I’ll be there, too. Looking forward to it. FYI the forecast calls for temps in the 90s. Plan accordingly.

    I’ve not flown a PA-12 with an O-235, but I suspect it would be rather underwhelming. But maybe it would be good for practicing energy management! Cue Jim Dulin. :):)

    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. ...

    Neat planes, and astonishingly large when you’re standing next to one. They would come into Aniak from time to time, and it was always a nice change to see them.

    You might get some ideas from www.soundproofing.org. Based on their info, it seems like some anti-vibration pads and an enclosure with mass loaded vinyl might help.
