If selling aircraft is our day job, then flying seaplanes is our time out. WF Aviation can guide you in all aspects of seaplane operations within Europe. We have the contacts and experience necessary to separate dreams from reality, and in short order you can count on us to make the possible – practical. Our principal William Flood is one of the most experienced seaplane pilots around and has flown single & multi-engine in flying boat and floatplane types. Whether you are thinking of buying a seaplane, or looking to revalidate/renew a rating with some water flying hours or thinking of building some seaplane infrastructure then you really should look us up. The market for seaplanes is less liquid, and more dependent on specialist knowledge of aircraft and how they were operated. Similar to how aerobatic aircraft are valued on their level of hardship or tlc bestowed upon them, seaplanes are valued in the same way. More than once have we gone on inspection trips to view prospective purchases only to find out they had salt water, damage and even smuggling history! WF Aviation has particular fondness for the Lake Amphibian Types. We work with the experts on the marque, and have no reason to doubt Paul Furnee as the “master” of the Lake range of aircraft.
Paul was formerly the engineer responsible for flight testing and certification of every model since the LA-4-200, but actually conceptualized and developed many of the improvements himself. He was also responsible for operating Lake Aircraft, Inc. as General Manager for several years in the 1980's and also spent time as General Manager of Aerofab Inc., who manufactured the aircraft. There just isn't much Paul doesn’t know about the Lake Aircraft or the company that built it. Here is the link to Lake Hamilton Seaplane, where Paul is currently the head technician.
WF Aviation will work with you in achieving your water flying dreams, and our fee’s are very modest for all we do. If you have that itch just get in touch, and come out flying our seaplane with us. We’ll talk it over and get you on the right path.
