Charlie Wiplinger, with the de Havilland Beaver that has a turbon engine instead of a piston engine. "It's a lot of fun to fly," says Wiplinger. "It's got 650 horse instead of 450 horse so it's a rocket ship. It just gets up and goes."

Participants of the Minnesota Seaplane Pilots Association Safety Seminar at Madden's Resort on Gull Lake, May 15-17 arrived in an interesting variety of aircraft, each cozying up to the beach, or to the grass strip at the East Gull Lake airport.

The agenda at the seminar included a wide variety of educational sessions, training in your own airplane, an exhibit area at Madden's Town Hall on the resort grounds, social hour, and gourmet food at every turn. Weather cooperated at just the right times.

Attendees, vendors, and organizers deemed the event a pleasant success. Plans are already in the making for next year.
