Ride to the San Juan Islands in the September Issue of Airplanista Magazine
Take a scenic seaplane ride to Washington's San Juan Islands aboard a Kenmore Air Turbine Otter seaplane in the September issue of Airplanista digital aviation magazine.
"I took this ride along trip without having ridden in a seaplane, and was extremely impressed with the amount of aviation and nautical skills a Kenmore pilot needs to fly the route to the San Juans,” said Airplanista Editor/Publisher Dan Pimentel. “It also happened late in the afternoon on a clear day, so the images I created from the Otter's right seat really demonstrate how beautiful this part of our country is."
The article describes in great detail about a series of flights that Kenmore Air makes by seaplane to Friday Harbor, Deer Harbor, Westsound and other stops on a daily commuter run. "The story takes in inside the cockpit with Kenmore Air's pilot, Chuck Perry, who completely blew me away with his skills at handling the large turbine Otter in the air and on the water," Pimentel said.
