Default How to take a float plane off a concrete Runway!

Bet they do this a lot "up" there......also notice the use of flaps when take off speed is obtained.

You are welcome anytime Jerry, come and fly anything

Here is the float landing after the dolly launch. Three layers of aluminum furnace tape on the forward keel back to the step and those old plastic floats are good for two landings.
