KLEE -Leesburg Splash-in
Details in planning mode, but most likely
will be like 2021 below info:
Where: KLEE airport at the Seaplane apron!
RSVP to FloridaSeaplanes@hotmail.com
From KLEE tower: Seaplanes, please approach the area from the East, or SE,NE, and stay East of the airport until on the water, don't overfly the runways or airport. Use tower frequency of course.
Float manufacturer Wipaire will be
there with the Boss182 and is giving each seaplane RSVP one free food ticket per seaplane! (limited number available, first to RSVP get first)
Food Truck will be there, please buy food, this guy is coming for us (Wipaire's providing 1 free food ticket per seaplane that RSVP's to me) If you have more than one person in the seaplane, they will have to pay, but hey, still cool you get one! (Limited number available, those that RSVP first get them first)
Bring your own chairs, games, toys, etc. Lets have some fun!
Parking: There are 3 places to possibly park, Seaplane apron, seaplane dock, or FBO (landplanes only). Food truck will be by at seaplane apron/dock. I got a porta potty this year, so the only people going to/from FBO will be those that park landplanes at FBO and need a ride over..
1: The Seaplane apron next to ramp/dock is a non-movement area, so tower isn't in charge of taxing inside the apron. We can get out of aircraft and walk around in this non-movement area. When parking here, please park close to each other, so there is enough parking for the rest of the planes. Please help keep things clean and don't litter, I will bring trash bags to clean up afterwards, but please do you part.
2: Tied up to seaplane dock. There are at least one or two straight floatplanes that will need priority to dock since they don't have wheels, so if you have wheels, please park in other location.
3: At Sunair FBO ramp. Only recommended for non seaplanes. We have some volunteers to shuttle you over to seaplane apron. Wear a mask and use hand sanitizer.
Please buy fuel while at KLEE to help the FBO who is helping us.
Bring your own lines/anchors/ tiedowns/chalks/etc.
Feel free to invite friends, but have them RSVP to me at email@example.com with
airplane callsign, type, and people on board.
