jafo: Now your talking! I did read where a new rating (i.e. seaplane rating qualifies as a bi-annual flight review!
Land on the water and taxi up to your awaiting Cig (or boat of choice ). How cool would that be?

I'd need the Cig first, but you and Crazyhorse already have that covered.

We will all anxiously await the pics of you doing just that- you claim you've already smacked the 401K anyway, what hurt could a 206T on amphibs do now?
That should really turn a few heads!

SummerO, it's been ten years and your first time back you drive a Barron in IFR You've got some brass stones my friend! I would say that would be the equivalent of taking a 28 Skater with twin 300x's out in three foot wind chop and letting her rip....at night!

I'll bet that while you were IFR you didn't for a minute think about problems at the office, taxes, war in Iraq, whatever. Kind of therapeutic

Just remember, dead foot - dead engine

Actually, all I was thinking about was keeping the shiny side up!

Yes, a new rating does qualify as a BFR. So yes, a floatplane rating would get me current. Speaking of that, I need to check my logbook to see when I need my BFR. It's due this month. And I need to do my six instrument approaches by the end of the month to remain current for IFR work.

UT: It sounds like you have a multi rating as well!
My instructor used to tell me "dead foot, dead engine, unless you are 50 above the runway on takeoff, then it dead foot, dead pilot"
He made his point not to hesitate though!
