Hey guys-

Anyone know any decent charter operations that will beach a seaplane, on a beach and actually land in the ocean?

I've talked to several who do not put their airplanes actually into the ocean, but only on lakes, rivers, etc..

I am looking for something in Florida, preferably..

Thanks

Jeff

Yeh, that's the only one I've found so far..

I'm sure the cost of a Turbine Mallard would be prohibitive for what I am looking for.. :)

Me and the finace' are getting married on the beach and I was going to try and find something that could beach itself, pick up up and then fly us "away." Neat idea - I think - just not very plausible..

go to www.seaplanes.org (Seaplane Pilots Associaton) look in the training section under schools. There seem to be a few guys that have Widgeons--maybe you could rent the pilot and plane for the right price:cool:

why does it have to be a twin? There are any number of single engine seaplanes which are quite capable of picking up you and your wife.

Yeah, but you don't have the romance of being picked up Howard Hughes style...

guys-

thanks for the help..I could call jimmy's sister, but I don't know if she has a twin..

It doesn't HAVE to be a twin, I have found a guy with a Maule who will do it, however, as someone mentioned - it's just not as "neat."

Sky37D - I will check out those links, I appreciate it..

A Squared - just curious as to what the point of your post was?

No real point, I guess, just a tangent. Your question reminded me of this accident. I know the pilot and his wife.

There used to be a place down in FL that flew a twin Aztec on floats, but last I heard is that it wasn't being flown much and was being stored up on land.
