    Default LAKE PLEASANT SEAPLANES....Coming soon!!!



    LAKE PLEASANT SEAPLANES
    Chapter 1217 member Tod Dickey has
    undertaken a long-term project to benefit the
    pilots of Arizona, he is working to get Lake
    Pleasant open to seaplanes. Accompanied
    by Jim Swedback, he has been talking to the
    Maricopa County Parks Department for over 2
    years now and may be making some
    progress. Jim and Tod have been before the
    Parks Commission and were sent back to
    work with the Parks staff for their
    recommendation. What they wanted was to
    start with a one day event to evaluate and
    become familiar with seaplane operations.
    The tentative dates for this are Saturday
    February 21 or Saturday March 14, 2009.
    They would like to start with a maximum of
    10-12 seaplanes. The event would probably
    involve lunch and a “boaters’ introduction to
    seaplanes” seminar.
    The goal is to open Lake Pleasant to
    seaplane use in the wintertime and weekday
    use only in the summertime. They are trying
    to convince them that seaplane use is
    consistent with the Lake’s Mission Statement
    and would increase the park-goer’s outdoor
    experience, as well as provide additional
    income for the Park. Park rules currently
    prohibit seaplane operations (except in
    emergencies) except in designated areas.
    They are asking them to designate such an
    area.
    They are trying to put together an e-mail list of
    pilots that are interested in seaplane
    operations at Lake Pleasant, and helping out
    at a small one-day Fly-in at the lake. If you
    have an interest send him a note at
    [email protected]. Jim Sweback,
    Tod and Jim Beauchane are putting together
    a presentation on seaplanes for our January
    Chapter meeting. Also, if you want to get a
    look at Jim’s seaplane you just need to look
    at the cover of the third October Trade-a-
    Plane where it is featured.

    Lets see?? Seaplanes and Boats, on the same water. Ski boats with IDIOTS behind the wheel and a bigger IDIOT on a 60-75' rope behind him. This will make the 12 news at 5,6,7,10, and midnight.

    I think there is still a "seaplane" in the lake in the vicinity of the dam. Not sure they ever fished that one out.

    I was out there the night when they crashed...we got to the ramp 30 minutes afterward and there were police and news trucks everywhere. We asked what happened and the cops said "a plane just crashed in the lake"...we asked if the ramp was closed and they said no...so we launched, and took it real slow. That was the darkest night I had ever been on the lake, you couldn't see anything out there!
    R.I.P. Chico & Zeus I miss you both.
