Seaplane Rating - SES & MES

We provide instruction in customer owned seaplanes.

A sea plane rating is one of the most adventurous and unique ways to grown and foster the aviation community. As a sea plane aviator, you will be able to explore waterways, rivers, lakes and even oceans from a perspective not attainable by many; including other aviators! In some areas of the country, the sea plane pilot provides essential services not attainable through ground travel.

The sea plane ratings are as varied as land-based planes:

  • Private Pilot

  • Commercial Pilot

  • Instrument Pilot

  • Multi-Engine Pilot

  • Instructor Pilot 

  • Instrument Instructor Pilot

The requirements for these ratings are identical to the land-based planes. However, with added challenge of being on the water, there are unique tasks that will be required to demonstrate when obtaining the sea plane rating.
