If you’re looking for seaplane fun, the SeaRey is the way to get it! Our goal is to provide first class training in our 2020 Progressive Aerodyne 914 powered SeaRey using the Searey Flight Instructor Association course syllabus to achieve your light-sport, private or commercial single-engine seaplane rating. We also offer training in your SeaRey, ferry flight services and demo flights if you want to find out what real fun flying is all about! Remember, a successful checkride counts as a BFR!
We primarily use Belton Lake from our Temple, Texas location and Cedar Creek Lake and Lake Athens from our Canton, Texas location, but almost anywhere is possible! We have a lodging package available for our beautiful Belton Lake location. Bring the family and enjoy swimming and kayaking on the lake during the training. Only a 10 minute drive from Temple Airport (KTPL).
