Seaplane community & opportunities


Michigan is a seaplane friendly state. There are a lot of lakes and rivers to operate from. There are two fly in events each year. The first is at Otsego Lake near Gaylord on the second weekend of June. The second is on Grand Marais on the north shore of the upper peninsula on the third weekend of June.
