Moose Pass floatplane flying
I rented this plane and hired a local instructor from Alaska Float Ratings. Darlene and I prepped the plane and then I got a feel for it before flying into the mountains. This is a heavily-modified Cessna 172. It has a 180hp engine, a constant-speed prop, and vortex generators on the wings. The mods make it so nose-heavy that unless there was a passenger in the back seat, we had to load fifty pounds of ballast weight in the baggage area.
