Winter Haven Florida
Did you ever do something that gave you a smile that could not get knocked off of your face, even with a 2x4? Jack Brown's Sea Plane Base in Winter Haven Florida specializes in handing out that type of a smile. There is something special about flying from the water but there is something very special about doing it in a Piper Cub. My wife bought an hour of dual instruction as a birthday gift and there was no better place to take some dual than on the lakes surrounding Winter Haven Florida in a J3. Four Lakes, ten take off and landings in one hour and a smile that still wont go away when I think about the Cub coming in on a glassy water approach. Door open, warm breeze, perfect weather. Flying does not get much more fun than this.

The instructor and his student. Guess which one is from the north! I dressed for April weather. (April in Pennsylvania)
Not ready to fly a Cub on floats?
