Seaplane Instruction and Ratings

         Here at Florida Seaplanes, we utilize (2) MAULE 235 HP Super Rocket Seaplanes for Airplane Single Engine Seaplane (ASES).  We do big and small lake landings, normal/glassy/rough water procedures, confined area, crosswind, turning takeoffs, step taxi, and even river landings! We also stop at various waterfront cafes and restaurants for lunch breaks and frankly have quite a good time splashing around Florida.  We work to meet YOUR scheduling needs and usually a typical student will finish rating in 3 days.  We can also do refresh and dual flight training without rating. If you wish to get a rating, you must either have FAA pilot license standalone, or a FAA pilot license based on foreign license and current medical.
