  • SES in Maule

    Got a chance to fly a Maule on floats this past week, it was the closest thing I could find to a Bearhawk. It had an IO-540 @ 235 HP and performed well. If anyone wants their Seaplane rating in the Florida area......I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Florida Seaplanes It was the most fun I've had in an airplane! I am definitely going to put my BH on floats one day

    That's awesome! Did you end up getting your SES? How many days did it take?

      I did. It only took 2 days and 4.7 hours. The checkride was another .8

      Including the flight home from the checkride I had a total of 6 hours SES time.

      I brought my family and made a long weekend out of it. There is plenty to do in the area to keep them busy while I flew.

            Here right now- my wife may have found a way to talk me into another Disney vacation.

            hear that sucking sound? That's the black hole that used to be my bank account.
