I am a new memeber from Zumbro Falls, MN USA. I fly floats and am interested in a Cygnet. Just ordered plans from Viking. I want a small 2 seater that will fly off grass. My neighbor has a grass strip 3700' just a mile or so from my home. He flies a Cessna 206 on Wipline amphibs. I get a ride once in awhile. My favorite plane is the Texas Turbne Otter on floats. 8100 pounds at gross and off the water in 11 seconds and climbing. I know, dream on. Wife and i flew in one in Juenau, AK, what a thrill and such natural beauty in AK.

Another Welcome Aboard. Was in the MSP area for 14 months, and it was interesting. Now in NW FL, USA.
Remember the many lakes and the ice fishing houses. Got a float plane rice while I was there - interested, but never went for it.
Wish you luck in your plane-building adventures.
