Wings Over Water Sea Plane Certification Getaway

Sea Plane

If you have ever dreamed of gliding peacefully onto a pristine lake with your own plane, now you can.

Get your seaplane certification through Wings Over Water and stay at Minnesota's Classic Resort while you train with one of the top sea plane pilots in the Upper Midwest. Mary Alvorsen is a commercial pilot and flight instructor in both single and multi engine land and single-engine sea planes. Wings Over Water promises to bring you the most enjoyable aviation training experience ever provided.

Gull Lake and the Brainerd Lakes area features some of the most beautiful lake country flying available anywhere. The combination of one thousand acres of resort facilities, 63 holes of championship golf, fine dining and flying are enough to exceed any pilot's expectations. Or enjoy a relaxing massage at the Spa at Madden's, located right on the shores of Gull Lake. Whatever your interests, Madden's has something for everyone! Enjoy lodging, breakfast and dinner each day, use of all recreational facilities at Madden's, golf on our Pine Beach East or Pine Beach West golf courses and a special guest rate at "The Classic at Madden's", Minnesota's only 5-star rated golf course (Golf Digest).
