On a trip to Minnesota this summer, I met a young pilot on the dock at Surfside seaplane base just outside of Minneapolis. Freshly hired by a charter outfit as a float pilot, he was back home taking this passenger for a ride in a classic Piper J-3. Enjoy this One Minute Film for the sound of the water, the single-swing hand propping, and the roar of the mighty Continental as they take 4000 feet to get airborne! :)

More videos are on the way from Surfside and Minnesota float flying in general.
