Senior Editor Pia Bergqvist gets her seaplane ticket in Alaska.
There are no aerial maneuvers required for the add-on seaplane rating. But with all the extra drage created by the floats, the airplane behaves quite differently compared with a conventional airplane.
I have owned three Tri-Pacers over the years. I am 81 years young now, so have not flown for quite a few years now. I have flown a PA-12 on floats many years ago. Have fun with the bird.
