Seaplane Training: The State of Maine has some of the most beautiful scenery that can be viewed and enjoyed all year round. But one of the most enjoyable ways as pilots that we can get out and enjoy it is via seaplane! Whether you wish to go fishing for native brook trout in the north Maine woods, or enjoy a lakeside cabin retreat, a seaplane rating will get you there. Seaplane training is done in our 1958 Piper PA-18 Super Cub. We offer Seaplane training from the months of June until October. Seaplane training is done on a reservation basis so book now! The average seaplane course in the country consists of only a couple hours of ground and flight training to give you the knowledge just to pass the checkride. At Higher Ground Aviation, we train beyond the checkride!
