Seaplane flight training on the lakes of Minnesota

Research for a seaplane action scene in The Serpent's Game

I headed to Lino Lakes just north of Minneapolis, Minnesota, to get my seaplane rating, which involves about 8-9 hours of dual training and a check-ride with an FAA examiner. This training is particularly relevant to my novels since I'm about to write an action scene involving a seaplane flight (and crash) for my upcoming thriller The Serpent's Game.

Here are some pictures from the training:
