“So You Want to Fly Seaplanes,” the latest DVD from Sporty’s What You Should Know Series, can help you get your feet wet when it comes to seaplane flying.
“This DVD is a comprehensive learning tool for the addition of a seaplane rating, but will also appeal to those who want to know more about seaplanes,” said DVD Producer Bret Koebbe.
In the DVD, you’ll travel to the famous Jack Brown’s Seaplane Base in Winter Haven, Fla., for a complete look at what flying seaplanes is all about. Climb into the back seat of a Piper J-3 Cub on floats for a pilot’s eye view of all the maneuvers required for the FAA checkride. Learn different taxi techniques, how to read the wind and water and how to master water takeoffs and landings. Along the way, you’ll get real world tips to help advance your skills from noted seaplane instructors Jon Brown and John Rennie.
The DVD, which also includes interactive extras, including a float diagram, wind and water chart and several Internet links for additional information, costs $29.95.
