With over 55 lakes and 3 rivers in the middle of the Bitterroot Mountains, we offer a unique North Idaho seaplane adventure in an Alaska-like setting - without the bugs.  Pilot your floatplane to beautiful Coeur d' Alene for a "Bucket List" check-off.  Earn a SES rating, and/or join us for advanced Alaska-style seaplaning, mountain flying, beaching at first-class restaurants for meal and/or fishing or hiking in the forests of North Idaho.  We can arrange a rental house right on Hayden Lake where you can dock your plane or direct you to the Coeur d' Resort, home of the famous "Floating Green" golf course.  Seawing courses, BFRs, safety refreshers, and just plain fun and safe flying are all on the menu.  Splash-in on our waters while learning river operations, confined area landing and takeoffs, maximum performance maneuvers, and game spotting.  Instructor/FAA-Designated Examiner Mike Kincaid is a retired Alaska Pilot-Trooper and author of Seaplane Rating Basics and the Jack Blake flying adventure series, and was a stunt pilot in the Alaska movie "The Frozen Ground". He is the SPA field director for Idaho.
