Lake Amphibian Flyers Club

President’s Welcome

lafc_photo_047Welcome to our NEW web site! Building on the work begun by Marc and Jill Rodstein, this project has been long in coming, but we are finally updated with a site that will be useable for years to come.

The Lake Amphibian Flyers Club is an international organization of owners, pilots, and aficionados of Lake Amphibian aircraft. This unique airplane can do what ordinary airplanes cannot do. Once you have flown a Lake, an ordinary airplane will seem mundane. Like most airplanes, it is not without its quirks, and specific Lake knowledge goes a long way to maximize the enjoyment of the airplane. We seek to continue to provide access to that knowledge and to help you enjoy operating the Lake and minimize the cost of doing so, while avoiding the problems that can occur with the operation of any seaplane.

lafc_photo_015If there is one thing every Lake pilot must obtain, it is effective training from a LAKE QUALIFIED instructor. The Lake is not hard to fly, but it is different enough that specialized training is necessary. Whether it is initial or recurrent training, there is just no substitute for training with a Lake expert. You can find a qualified Lake instructor on our Instructor Listing on this website. Do not put off getting trained by a Lake instructor. Many who skipped this necessary step have come to grief.
