Jul 5th, 2014 - Searey amphib flying

Today I was awarded an unusual treat and an exciting experience. Mr. Chuck Hosack gave me a ride in his Searey amphib and the ride was incomparable to anything I have ever done before. The Searey is an exceptional aircraft and Chuck’s attention to detail and all of the extras he has put into the airplane show through in many ways.

On our take off from Wolf Lake the Searey was in the air in a short amount of time and climbing at 500 fpm easily, we leveled out at 1,000 feet and Chuck turned the controls over to me. The Searey is a docile aircraft with solid controls and handled the light turbulence we had with no trouble.

Chuck asked me if I wanted to try a water landing. “Does a fish swim?” Of course I wanted to splash down in the nearest lake, heck I wanted to splash down in all of the lakes. Chuck picked a lake with not much boat traffic, hard to do on the 4th weekend, lined up for landing and touched down in a gentle spray, (ok he bounced it a little, it was a glassy water landing) and when he slowed to a taxi, I opened the window and casually put my hand in the water and joked that it was too cold for swimming.

The take-off on the water was exhilarating, the Searey was up on step in seconds and then Chuck had to maneuver around a canoe and then around an island, all the while the Searey was acting like a very fast boat, then we were In the air. The acceleration once again was amazing, this flying boat really moves.

I wanted to share this with the chapter and thank Mr. Chuck Hosack publicly for making my day.

Thank you Chuck for an experience I will cherish.
