Hi Bob,

Most newer and innovative ideas happen in the West, which leaves Washington from the list of four.

Due to the nature of the beast, it will be difficult enough to get pilots and airplanes, so we are clearly open to pilots from Canada. Unfortunately sharing isn't a strength of the special people in the Southeast, but we remain positive that this can be pulled off. Pretty amazing progress to see that the word is spreading up there and to see that regulators and state people finally figure out that the concept has merit.

There are some interesting discussions on the seaplane aspect and I wish we could have them here, to get more heads thinking.
This is a perfect way to generate some very positive press for the seaplane industry and god knows... we could use some positive press....

I am still confused. So is this in Jefferson County State of Washington? If so, sounds a little far for Glenn in his Cub Coupe, but who knows.

Fortunately, the forum reaches more than just two people. No need to be confused.

Can you answer the ONE SIMPLE question that I have asked. What state is this in?

Thank you Jason. If you read your post it talks about Washington, but is not specific that that is the state. Sorry to be a pain. I got that it was the North West. I got that Washington was one of Four, but not this it was THE ONE.

I edited my initial post and the article to make this clearer. Sometimes we just assume that people know where stuff happens and I rushed getting this out.

Thanks for forcing me to look back into it...
