Got one flight on the Beaver with the floats this week end

We have a small farm pond at our flying site with no wind it takes most of the pond for take off. However we had about 15mph+ and take off was no problem. Point it into the wind hold full up power up clear the prop wash neutral elevator and off the water in just a few feet.

Landing just like a bush plane, full flap hold power to clear the end of the pond and set it down. The only scary part was turning on the pond, had to be very carfull to not get cart wheeled by the cross wind on taxi back.

couple of short flights just to say I did and packed it in.

It's almost mid-January and still no snow! I'd like to ditch the floats and try this baby out on skis and of course, with video

Live in Nevada City and in November we scheduled a sno fly for January. does not look good. If the snow is soft the floats work well but ski's are more realistic.

Snow and water are fun.

I take then that your normal weather in winter is + 20 - +15 oF ?????
Ignore "Global Warming" at your own (and future generation's) peril dude.

We're lead to believe "There is no ozone hole but just a big hole in some people's imagination/ brain"....And now I wonder who has the last laugh....
