Seaplane Rating

As the summer sun heats up the weekends, you may be torn on whether you should head to the airport to take advantage of flying in the blue skies, or take your family to the lake to soak in the sun. Well now, you can do both! We are so excited to announce a new option for our Club members by offering our J3 Cub on floats, based on Winona Lake! This Cub not only offers new options for your weekends on the lake, but it offers a new rating for aviators and combines the passion of flying and boating to so many in the area who call our lakes county home.

Enjoy dinner at the Boathouse and a sunset flight around Winona Lake. Cruise up to the sandbar on Tippy or fly up to the Oakwood for some live music on the Patio with a friend. The opportunities are endless with this awesome addition to our club and we can’t wait to get you started on (and finished with) your Seaplane Rating so you can take full advantage of the benefits of flying a floatplane.

Seaplane Ratings are a fun and challenging way to increase your skill level as a pilot. Take your pilot’s license to the next level and sign up to start your Seaplane Rating with us. The Seaplane Rating includes:

  • 5 hours of flight training in our Piper J3 Cub on floats
  • Briefing, debriefing and ground school
  • 1 hour of flight time for your check ride
  • A home study guide 

Cost is $1200 (wet). Please note: The cost does not include the FAA examiner’s fee or additional time needed in the plane with an instructor. You must be a Sport, Private, or Commercial Pilot with a current medical to earn your Seaplane Rating.

In need of a BFR? Adding the Seaplane Rating will bring you current! For more information on this rating or to schedule your first lesson, contact Carla at 888-566-3877 or email us at We all know how fast summer flies by, so sign up early so you can enjoy this summer on floats. We’re going to have a fun summer at the Warsaw Flying Club and we hope you’ll join us!
