Myself and 2 partners did our MEL at Traverseair. I also tacked on my CFII
while I was there and one of my partners added a SES after he did his MEL.
Very down to earth and relaxed attitude and program. DE was a great guy who
was the Chief Instructor at a local community college. I know several other
pilots from the central Wis area who have gotten ratings through Tom and
I've never heard a bad word.

Multi Engine Sea... a good friend of mine used Jack Brown in Winterhaven,
FL. They used a Twin Seabee. No idea of the cost.

Cool thanks for the info on Traverseair, I looked into jack browns the cost
was more than I am willing to pay... looks like Traverseair for the SES and
Skylink Aviation in Missouri At Smartt Field (St. Charles County Airport
KSET) for the CFI!!! Still a toss up for the MES???

Hey Hilton,
Great write ups on both the SES and MES. Now I know 2 guys that have played
with the Twin Bee. My friend had the same comments about control movements
while on the water... maximum deflection, take a nap, wake up when the view
starts to change

NorCal... I saw Terry on one of the aviation channels a while back... at
the time of the filming she was also using a Piper Apache on floats that was
owned by a pilot from Belgium... I was lucky enough to get a look at it at
OSH many years ago, one of a kind. Which brings to mind the Aztec Nomad
http://www.aztecnomad.com/, Steven, maybe you could hook up with the Nomad
guys for your MES?

Jim

Very sad indeed. I just checked the norcal website and see that
they've shut down.

I hope Terry will revive the operation. Going up there for a couple
days of splashing around in her 150 has been the highlight of the last
couple of summers.
