Are you interested in getting your float rating this summer? Well you could be the winner of our newest scholarship, and get it done for FREE!

Alaska Floats and Skis has generously offered to join up with the WAI Last Frontier to award a floatplane rating to one lucky individual. This rating is super fun to get and worthwhile, especially in the beautiful last frontier!


  1. Must possess at least a PPL
  2. Must post on either WAI Last Frontier’s Facebook page OR post on your Instagram (tag us! @wailastfrontier) with a caption pertaining to the award, describing both of the following: Your dream day/adventure in a floatplane, and what you would do with a float rating. **MUST BE POSTED BY JULY 8TH!**
  3. Float rating scholarship is valid for ONLY this season (approx. the end of October, 2020)
  4. Winner must send us an update about the float rating experience for us to post in the next newsletter/social media post.

We will draw the lucky winner at our July meeting… in Talkeetna!
