    As I consider buying a Searey, one of the things I'd like to know is whether there are any relatively local CFI's (western WA) who have sufficient experience/comfort in a Searey to be able to help me hone my skills flying that particular aircraft. I'd appreciate any information or suggestions. Thanks so much.

    I think the nearest one will be Tom Binsfeld in Chico, CA. http://www.californiasearey.com/

    Hi Steve, There was a guy at the september priest lake splash in who was a searey guy. i'll ask who he was. i think he was a dealer so he should know who knows what. i should get smart on the searey. i'm a cfi and it seems the market for them is growing.

    Call and ask Tom Binsfield of California Searey. He was at the splash in and knows who's who.

    Thanks everyone for the responses. I ended up going to Florida and getting my SES  rating in Chesapeake Sport Pilot's Searey with Daniel Myers and Greg Burtner. Great instructors and a lot of fun. Plus I found a Searey to bring back to the Pac NW.
