19th Annual Otay Lake Float Fly, San Diego, CA, USA Saturday, October 23, 2010

Are you ready to have some fun on the water?

Then plan on attending the 19th Annual Otay Lake Float Fly on Saturday, October 23, 2010, starting at 8am!

Spend the day at the Lower Otay reservoir with your friends and your favorite float plane and flying boat, or be the first one to bring out a heli that is ready for water-borne operations.

Landing fees are only $10 and freshly cooked breakfast burrito, tri-tip sandwich, burgers/hots dogs and ice cold sodas/water will be available for sale to satisfy your palate.

If you have not experienced taking off water yet, you are in for a treat.
Words alone cannot describe the feeling of being at the lake's edge in the cool morning air.
You place your float plane in the water and start taxiing away.
The ripples start to form on the glass-like surface.
You check the wind direction one more time and then turn into it.
You throttle up, water splashing around, and within seconds you have your majestic aircraft circling above the lake.
And the spectators are watching with a little bit of envy, wishing they could be the ones doing this cool thing called Float Flying!

Well it is not too late, you have a couple of weeks to think about and prepare for this fun event.

I wished I lived there, as I just finished a seaplane that I really want to fly, and the weather is going south here.
Like Buckwheat on SNL, I'd definitely say Otay to going.
