What is it like to fly single-engine float planes? How do pilots develop and then hone their water-flying skills? What techniques apply to both landplanes and seaplanes, and which ones belong in only one realm?

The answers to these questions comprise a unique approach to seaplane flying, in a book that reveals what floatplane mastery is really all about. Notes of a Seaplane Instructor offers insights to all pilots, from already-rated seaplane pilots to those looking to experience the benefits and pleasures of seaplane flying for the first time.

In these pages, readers will learn:
  • How seaplane preflight inspections differ from those in landplanes,
  • normal, glassy and rough-water takeoff techniques,
  • flight characteristics of seaplanes,
  • seaplane landing skills, in a wide variety of water conditions,
  • water handling and sailing techniques,
  • advanced operations, including density altitude, weight-and-balance, and performance considerations particular to seaplanes, along with examples of restricted terrain operations,
  • details on operating amphibious floatplanes, with explanations of both the benefits and drawbacks


  • English issue, 2nd edition, softcover, glossary, illustrated throughout, 204 pages.
