Dream of mine

Recommended Posts

G'day I've heard that this site is a good one to ask questions and hopefully someone will be able to help out. I am interested in amphibious aircraft have been for a number of yrs. I've had my ticket for 7 years now so ready to get this dream of mine alive. The info I'm after is very simple. I would like to know if anyone out there has had experience with amphib and which aircraft are out there? Either GA, ultra light, light sport aircraft because of locations, salt water, paddock landings. Any suggestions will be muchly appreciated, thanks.

If you are going Salt water consider the extra requirements for corrosion protection from the safety and cost aspect. Nev

I've been talking of putting mine on floats, a good mate reckons if you want to wreck a good plane put it on the water, I think I'd be a fresh water only type, and still have to do a lot of corrosion proofing.

 

Looked into getting a float rating in Alaska, worked out I could fly there ,have a good holiday ,do the training all for about what I was quoted here! Something to think about I reckon.

What is the situation with insurance ? By that I mean, it must be more expensive than land based planes wouldn't it ?
