Seaplane Parking

seaplanes tied to dock in talkeetna alaska

A few post-landing notes

  • Maintain at least 50′ from other vessels while taxiing in
  • Raise your flaps for better visibility while taxiing and reducing the effect of the wind on your seaplane
  • Have an idea of where you want to go, you don’t have any brakes!

In the next topics, we’ll cover anchoring, ramping, beaching, and mooring.  We’ll also talk about sailing, which is a great way to safely approach the shoreline or parking area in high winds.
