The Seaplane Foundation is vital to the protection and promotion of seaplane flying. Thanks to generous donations from supporters, the foundation has assumed a growing role in the mission effectiveness of the Seaplane Pilots Association.
The seaplane community is faced with an aging pilot population that is shrinking daily, and the foundation is aggressively working to attract a new generation of young pilots. To address this problem the Seaplane Foundation is creating numerous interactive programs to attract youth to the water flying community, including a national Seaplane Rating Scholarship program. The Tyler Orsow-Chuck Kimes Memorial Scholarship program is actively stimulating the growth of the seaplane pilot population by providing zero-cost seaplane rating scholarship to deserving young career-track pilots.
