Seaplane community & opportunities


Despite being surrounded by seaplane friendly states, Georgia has not welcomed seaplane to the extent that we believe it should. The Seaplane Pilots Association and our Field Director Troy Wheeler have been working with Army Corp of Engineers for several years to open Lake Sidney Lanier.

We feel that Georgia possesses a significant number of lakes that could and should be open to seaplane activities. Allatoona, Blue Ridge, Black Shear, Carters, J Strom Thurmond, Nottely, the Savannah River, Water F George and West Point Lake are all open with restrictions as far as we can determine.

Please check with Troy Wheeler and the Water Landing Directory App for most current information we have on file.
