The Washington Seaplane Pilots Association will hold it season opener Splash-In May 19 at Lake Whatcom.
Officials note this is a special occasion, long in the planning process, as a network of organizations have been putting together a plan where seaplanes could become an important part of the area’s emergency response resources.
“Learn how the first county ever in the U.S. would like to integrate floatplanes into their overall response plan after a major event,” officials said. “This is entirely new and groundbreaking as we are the first to do this, so you will be a part of something totally new. We also believe that participation on our part will help the general public see seaplanes as a vital part of a solution as opposed to just an annoyance.”
This event is being organized by Sky Terry and hosted by the Sudden Valley Community Association. There will be a free lunch provided by Fred Meyer.
Seaplanes are welcome to land at Floathaven. There will be a boat to shuttle you a half mile south to the beach site. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
