Sarnia waterfront visitors can expect to see a seaplane flying in and out of Sarnia Bay this summer.

City council has approved the request from Huron Flight Services to dock the two-seater plane at the Andrew S. Brandt Marina.

The iconic Piper J-3 cub will be used to provide flight training for aviation students. The 80-horsepower pontoon plane requires little room for takeoff and landing, and is smaller and quieter than most seaplanes, the centre noted.

The aircraft could be operating by mid-April between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The company did run a seaplane out of Sarnia Bay in the past. It was in service from 2001 to 2008.
