Seaplane flying is an exciting way to rediscover the fun and freedom of flying, or add that rating pilots covet. Now, the latest DVD in Sporty’s “What You Should Know” series can help you get your feet wet.

In So You Want to Fly Seaplanes, you’ll travel to the famous Jack Brown’s Seaplane Base in Florida for a complete look at what flying seaplanes is all about.

Along the way, you’ll get real world tips to help advance your skills from noted seaplane instructors Jon Brown and John Rennie. Also includes interactive extras for more detailed information about key topics.

It's a good DVD to watch for those who are learning to fly on floats, or haven't flown on floats in a while. It covers all the basics you should know before you go. Keep in mind that every plane performs different, just because you watch this video a few times doesn't mean you will be able to jump in any float plane and fly it.
