    This is the first in a small series of Group Flights solely dedicated to float planes with wheels (amphibious). One condition that enables you to participate in these events is that your aircraft must be amphibious (able to land both on land and water). We recommend strongly that you download FSX Snow Dog scenery from flightsim. It has 147 airports and floatplane docks. A must for those of you that like to fly in Alaska. Link here:

It's very interesting!!!....to say the least. They don't even have room for an airport here, that had to be built one on the next island over. We will shoot for the water port next to the main runway. We suggest you download scenery for this flight. Her is one:
