This presentation may inspire you to get a seaplane rating!

This evening we will learn about unique considerations for safely operating seaplanes, such as handling seaplanes in the water, choosing landing areas, using wind speed and direction information, how float planes make approaches and landings, and what it takes to earn a rating.
