Seaplane community & opportunities


The sun is rising in Colorado. We have been actively pursuing locations throughout the state with good success.
We have made significant in-roads with Colorado State Parks. The Colorado Director of Natural Resources has established a working group headed by Mr. Heath Kehn, Southwest Deputy Region Manager, Colorado State Parks. While the working group will initially consider only Navajo and Pueblo Reservoirs, the expected impact will be state wide.
We have recently opened discussions with the National Park Service concerning McPhee Reservoir near Dolores. The NPS is considering allowing seaplane access and possibly an annual splash-in. Keep watching this website for further details.
