Aviation Today

At Madden’s we are lucky enough to be right next a small airport: East Gull Lake Airport. Some of our guests will fly in to join us. Cool right? We even have a nearby company (Wings over Water) who can help you get your seaplane certification while you visit. I just wanted to give you a little background in case you’re wondering why a resort would write about aviation.

The purpose of my post though is to share some good articles I’ve read about seaplanes and aviation in general. I don’t claim to be an expert on the topic, but I hope you will enjoy learning alongside me. First, I’ll brief you with some terms for those new to the industry:

AOPA: Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association
FAA: Federal Aviation Administration
AD: Airworthiness Directive
Cessna: a type of aircraft often used in

The Articles:
