A Tightrope Act

Keeping-your-feet-dry-floatplane-Alaskan-tricksSometimes it’s hard to stay dry as a floatplane pilot. While unloading freight in King Salmon, I fell off the guide wire that runs between the two front floats. It’s a tightrope act anyway, and I was carrying 35 pounds of gear. Luckily, I threw the gear to the dock and only got myself wet.
Meanwhile, in Bradley Lake, a passenger slipped off the float while disembarking. Doug went in over his waders pulling them out.
We’ve learned the secret to flying floatplanes: keep a dry set of clothes at work.
