We are excited to update you on the Lake Lanier floatplane access process. After several informative and strategic meetings with the Army Corp of Engineers both locally and regionally, we are ready to begin the process of presenting the proposal for floatplane access in a public forum format.
Our goal of bringing business to the area while growing the General Aviation base in Georgia requires educating the community. Safe practices on our waterways are the responsibility of the certificated pilots of floatplanes, and we want the community to know that our desire is to work with boaters and lake homeowners to establish reasonable guidelines for lake access.
Lanier Flight Center Owner and President and Seaplane Pilots Association Field Director for Georgia, Troy Wheeler, wants you to know that we would not have come this far without the invaluable support of individual pilots within our community. Several friends of LFC participated in the June meeting when we heard from SPA President, Steve McCaughey. In order to enter the public forum, we are forming a focus group and will host a gathering in February (date and time TBA). Please email Heidi.Earle@lanierflightcenter.com if you are interested in attending. Your ideas, connections, and collaborative efforts are much appreciated and we are looking forward to taking the next step with you.
Thank you for your help in affording Georgia the freedom enjoyed by our neighboring states and by so many aviators nationwide.
