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!

- Float rating scholarship is valid for ONLY this season (approx. the end of October, 2020)
- 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!
