20th Anniversary Fly-In
Sept. 23, 24, & 25, 2022

A Special Invitation

This year will be the 20th anniversary of the Indiana Seaplane Pilots Association Annual Splash In.

For attending seaplane pilots and crew, we are planning a three day event this year starting with arrivals on Friday and a Friday night barbecue, to be determined will be pilot activities on Saturday with a banquet and reunion of Pilots  Saturday night at the Pottawattamie Inn.

Public Event

Sunday will be our day at the park that we share seaplanes with the community as always.

We would like to hear from pilots who have attended the event in the past but have not come for a while as well as pilots that have been enjoying the event in the recent years.

The Indiana Seaplane Pilots Association Splash-In was founded as an advocacy demonstration for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the recreational boaters and the like in the state of Indiana to dispel all of the common myths that seaplanes do not make good neighbors on public freshwater lakes.

Clearly we have demonstrated this point as well as created one of the most popular events in the State Park system in the state of Indiana.  Seaplane flying in Indiana is alive and well and growing a big part of that is because of the fabulous effort that has been made by all the pilots who come to the Indiana splash in and create education and goodwill plus share their airplanes with the public.

Join us for the fun!
