Florida Seaplane Ops Tour Details

Status: Active
Description: Seaplane Operations: Florida Descrption: Florida is one of the most seaplane friendly states in the United States. Opportunities to fly seaplanes are everywhere in Florida from great salt water flying in the Florida Keys to amazing amount of inland lakes in Central Florida to salt and fresh water flying in the northeast of the state. Flying in South Florida can be more difficult as the inter coastal waterway is controlled by various local governments and development along the waterway makes it difficult to safely operate seaplanes in it. Pretty much any body of water is open to land except for the Everglades because it is a protected area. You will start your adventure at Florida's best known and pretty much famous Jack Brown's Seaplane base. There you will head south along the western Suncoast, down to the Keys, up to Miami, and around the state. You will be landing at different bodies of water from salt to fresh. Depending on your simulator, not all seaplane bases may be in them, but the good news you are not landing at an airport, but on water. Make sure you save your flight in case your simulator doesn't have that base listed. What are you waiting for, time to get your feet wet. Note: Orlando Seaplane base is FL5, but for some reason skyvector has it listed as FL15. This tour was built by MEC011 Bill P.
