11th Annual Splash-In
One of the highlights of the year for the Indiana Seaplane
Pilots Association is the annual Pokagan State Park Indiana Seaplane Fly-In,
held every year in September.
Join us! For details,
10th annual Splash-In a big success!
On Sunday, September 23, 2012, over 25 seaplanes
arrived on the front lawn of the Potawatomi Inn at Pokagon State Park in
The weather alternated between sun and rain showers.
An estimated 1,000+ attendees wandered between the amphibious planes
parked on the lawn and the float planes drawn up on the beach.
Volunteer pilots gave free rides to over 70 lucky
winners in the free drawing.
"It was a great event", said Randy Strebig, the
president of the Indiana Seaplane Pilots Association and organizer of
the event since its inception in 2003. "We maintained our 100%
safety record, and a whole lot of people had a whole lot of fun."
Many thanks to the volunteers involved, especially the
pilots, ramp marshals, construction crew and event managers.

Help! We need your help to increase access
for Indiana seaplanes!
The Indiana Seaplane Pilots Association, in
conjunction with the national Seaplane Pilots Association is working
with the State of Indiana to develop reasonable changes to existing
regulations that could open many more Indiana waterways to seaplanes.
We are making progress, but...
More needs to be done, and the seaplane community is
being asked to help fund legal assistance to bring this about. The
SPA Foundation has established a special Indiana Seaplane Access Fund.
