Red lake float rating

#1 Post by Pilotverner » Sun May 21, 2017 9:58 am

Hi,

I'm heading to Red Lake next week for a season with John and Rena. I'll also be looking to do my float rating around Red Lake. Anyone knows someone that gives floats around there?

Still trying to find a place to rent too since i'll be with my girlfriend and can't live in the place they provide. Let me know if you have some ideas, a cabin would be perfect.

Thanks!

Peter told me he's still doing float ratings, but on a c185 at 350$/h. Should I try to find a c172 or a cub for a lower rate or 10 hours on a 185 could help me for my next job since everyone has some 185s in NWO?
