    Please enjoy the latest issue of the WSPA newsletter. 

    In it, you can read about the training adventures of three new commercial MES pilots, a Super Petrel LS named Daisy, and various tips to prevent mishaps known to occur when operating amphibious aircraft. 

    We would like to thank Addison Pemberton, Tonya Rutan, and Burke Mees for contributing their work and many great photos.  Also, thanks to editor, Scott Cooper for putting it all together.

    As always, we appreciate your continued support. Enjoy what remains of Summer 2020 and we hope to see you at a future splash-in!

    Attached is an article Burke wrote on amphib safety in 2016. It is well written and as pertinent today as ever. We reference it in our upcoming newsletter, and want to thank Burke for sharing his work as we continue to promote safety in everything we do.

    Member Update

    In 2013, the Washington Seaplane Pilots Association (WSPA) worked with the Foss Waterway Development Authority to enable the use of the seaplane float at the north end of the docks located at 535 Dock Street in Tacoma

    We're glad to inform you that the float has been returned to service for the duration of the summer months.

    Keeping waterways open to seaplanes is one part of an ongoing effort made by the WSPA on behalf of our members and fellow seaplane pilots. We provide member updates on seasonal access, and offer support in determining appropriate use and procedures for entry into known waterways. 

    If you have questions about a specific waterway or destination, please send us an email and we will be happy to assist.

    Best regards,

    Washington Seaplane Pilots Association (WSPA)
