Seaplanes may return to Windermere

A Canadian company hopes to start running seaplanes trips to Windermere, if it can get past the tough 10mph byelaw. AirSea lines is in talks with Cumbria Tourism and Cumbria Vision to start a service from London to the Lake District. This does of course present the planners with a bit of a dilemma having established the 10mpm limit a couple of years ago.
There are other lakes the service could use of course, but Windermere has several hotels right on it's shores and the appeal of a direct service from the capital is very appealing.
Friends of the Lake District have their usual concerns about 'disrupting the tranquility of the area'. If they think Windermere is tranquil, perhaps they should get out more.
