Some of the Place We Fly

Lake Don Pedro

Docking with the houseboats.  There is a great burger place there.  We dock right up next to it for lunch.

New Hogan Reservoir

There are great areas to beach with picnic benches for lunch.  This reservoir has really nice campsites.  My wife and I camp there several times a year.

  1. Hello,

    I just called you and left 2 messages so when you get a chance could you answer the following for me? As I mentioned, am looking to get some time in with you, I’m recent to this area and have been looking to get back into the air- it’s been a few years for me (20?…) and don’t expect to re-up my currency but possibly. I’m getting old and feeble and this has been a long time I’ve wanted to do this. Myself and being current are a long way off.
    Just wondering what a ticket would be or at the least get some time in now that I have the funds and some dollars – since that’s what makes really makes the thing fly.
    My number (916)470-8696. My name is Megan, 52, and look forward to the info.
    Thanks so much. And, if you don’t have the plane or are having an annual or something-is there another seaplane somewhere close by?

  2. Can sport pilots fly qualified sport a/c on floats? If not do you offer some type of intro to floatplane dual by the hour. Live nearby in Copperopolis.
