About Old Aire

"The best kept secret in Whatcom County"

Lane Older started Floathaven Seaplane Base on Lake Whatcom in 1960, offering charters, flight instruction, and maintenance. Lane's son, Dan grew up with the business as a mechanic's apprentice and later contributed as a pilot on seaplanes and land-based aircraft. Dan Older became director of operations for Floathaven in 1976. Old Aire is often referred to as the best kept secret in Whatcom County.
