Piedmont puddle jumpers offers commercial and private sea plane and float plane add on ratings in central North Carolina. We are located on Lake Norman which is the largest lake in North Carolina . We operate a fully restored 1956 7EC Aeronca Champ on PK 1800 floats with dual water rudders. Lake Norman boasts over 535 miles of beautiful shoreline in the foothill region of the Appalachian Mountains. It is a beautiful place to complete a BFR and knock out a bucket list item.
