The Will Rogers – Wiley Post Memorial Seaplane Base (FAA LID: W36), is a seaplane base located on Lake Washington, inside the perimeter fence of the northwest corner of the Renton Municipal Airport in Renton, Washington. It was named for the fact that these two famous personalities departed from this point on their ultimately-fatal trip to points in Alaska.
