Adventurians - It is with a very heavy, sad heart that I must announce the passing of one of our Seaplane Adventures family members. John Carmichael was one of our most beloved and respected flight instructors, having been teaching seaplane flying to pilots in the Bay Area and beyond for over a generation. John left us on Saturday eve after a long summer fight with a rare illness. John was fearless, resourceful and such a positive human being - everything REQUIRED to be a seaplane pilot! We will miss you so much, John. 4 days 6 hours ago.
