Chelan Seaplanes received notice of their lease terminating in mid September which has resulted in no home for the seaplane service on Lake Chelan. A very sad day has come for the seaplane service on Lake Chelan which has been operating since 1945.
Stehekin businesses and residents along with folks in greater Chelan County will be suffer. Folks looking to make a quick trip to Stehekin will not have the opportunity to catch a 25 minute scheduled flight. Visitors or residents of Stehekin that have emergencies come up will not be able to have an affordable and speedy option for getting between Chelan and Stehekin.
In order for the air service to be affordable, a permanent home for the seaplane service must have a reasonable lease rate to keep the service viable. Your support is needed to encourage the City of Chelan, the Port of Chelan and Chelan County to come up with a viable solution to house the badly needed air service on Lake Chelan.
Please support our petition to the City and Port to show how many people the lack of seaplane service on the lake will effect. You can make the difference and help restore the needed service on Lake Chelan.
Feel free to email the City of Chelan and the Port of Chelan to directly connect with them your concern and support for the seaplane service. By reaching out you will definitely have an impact.
