I am acquiring an amphibious 701 with Rotax 914 turbo, and constant speed prop. Can't wait to get to know it.
I live on a lake , so water ops are no problem. But, need some advice on possible land ops.
My property has a 300' stretch that could be used as a strip. Wires at one end will mean one way ops. 25' trees at other end, about 50' beyond threshold.
I am a 4500 hour, Comml & Inst guy with lots of experience on grass. But zero time in a 701 , and strips this short.
I live on the west coast of Florida, so DA can be a factor.
My question to you experienced guys - Is this doable, safely. Or, am I just a little too far to the " don't do it " side ?
Thanks for any advice you can give. Would love to hear fro,m folks that have really short strips.
