Seaplanes Coming Again to Lake Gaston Resort!
Don't miss this event! Lake Gaston Resort is hosting the 2014 Seaplane Splash-in and it is scheduled for October 11, 2014. Various seaplanes and amphibians will be on display, and several other interesting aviation related booths will be present for people to learn more about General Aviation. Visitors will be able to meet with the pilots, ask them about their planes, eat some food, try our Brunswick Stew, grab a drink and socialize! The event is being sponsored by the Virginia Seaplane Pilots Association, Mecklenburg-Brunswick Regional Airport and the Virginia Department of Aviation. View the flyer!
A Real General Aviation Event!
In addition to the seaplane displays, several vintage boats will be on display, compliments of the Antique and Classic Boat Society, Inc. There will also be a live radio broadcast during the event. While planes may come and go at anytime, the event will be open to the public between the hours of 10AM and 4PM. In case of bad weather, a rain date of Sunday October 12 has been scheduled.
If you plan to come by boat, please respect a "no wake please" policy when maneuvering your vessel in the "watery runway" area and be on the lookout for interesting seaplanes taking off and landing. If you plan to come by car, our gates will be open to the public at 9:30AM Saturday. There is a $5 fee per vehicle for parking. Handicap parking is available. Food and beverages (and adult beverages) will be available on the grounds, so coolers will not be permitted.
Seaplane rides are being provided by Sanddollar Seaplanes, Inc. If you are interested in taking a ride in a seaplane, please contact Steve Harris, Sanddollar Seaplanes, Inc. on 301-606-0723 to reserve your ride! You can also get more information at Sanddollar Seaplanes, Inc.
If you are a pilot and plan on flying to the event, we would like to know a little bit about you and your seaplane. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 434-577-2193. Staff will be available to assist you with parking, maneuvering, and launching and this will be co-ordianted on the CTAF frequency. You can also view more pilot information by clicking here.
Whenever looking at seaplanes, here are a couple of things to remember: Never climb on the seaplane or its floats unless you are invited by the pilot. Do not help move the planes unless you are asked to assist and told where to apply force to help position the plane. Any plane, in general, is delicate and can be damaged by incorrect handling. Also remember that unauthorized tampering with an airplane or any aviation safety device is a federal offense and can be punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.
Dr. David Michie has been kind enough to share his pictures of last year's event. These pictures depict what you will see at this year's event, provided the weather co-operates.
