SEAPLANE RATING - CHECK!
Professional pilot, Jud, finally added a seaplane rating to his impressive list of aviation accomplishments. Although he had always wanted to earn an Airplane Single-Engine Seaplane (ASES) rating, he was never interested in being rushed through a 1-2 day course. It was important to him to thoroughly learn how to fly a seaplane rather than just getting the rating. Once Jud visited Treasure Coast Seaplanes (TCS) he knew he had found the right course and instructors. He was convinced, “The Cessna 206 with amphibious floats is awesome!”
