AK: FLOATPLANE FLY-IN TO BIG AND LITTLE SHAHEEN CABINS
Jun 25, 2023—Jun 26, 2023
A floatplane fly-in is being held at the USFS’s Big and Little Shaheen Cabins on Sunday June 25th and Monday June 26th. All floatplane pilots are welcome to drop in for a few hours, or stay overnight. These two cabins, about 100 yards apart will accommodate up to a total of 10 folks, and there is plenty of overflow room for tents as well. This is an informal event to encourage floatplane pilots to meet up with other like minded pilots interested in the USFS Service cabins. You must bring all your own supplies to include food, gear, tents, sleeping bags, etc. There is plenty of good beach to safely park your floatplane. These cabins are on Admiralty Island, close to Juneau Alaska. Part of the Kootznoowoo Wilderness, a coastal forest of Sitka spruce and Western Hemlock dominate this island at the northern end of the fabled inside passage.
