Comprehensive text for pilots adding the seaplane rating to their license and for seaplane pilots to learn more, using full-color photography and illustrations throughout. Getting the seaplane rating is just pure fun. It provides the challenge of learning a new skill, freedom to land anywhere there is water, and access to remote places. The seaplane pilot rating may be obtained as the first pilot rating or, most commonly, as an add-on rating for those pilots who already hold the Airplane, Single-Engine Land certificate.
Dale DeRemers Seaplane Pilot guides pilots through this process with plenty of tips, techniques and advice from a pro along the way. It is also designed to function as an excellent tool for review, for those who already have the rating. Dr. DeRemer, the recognized dean of seaplane pilots, invites readers to join him on this learning adventure.
All the tasks the pilot must demonstrate during the checkride are covered in detail: preflight preparations, taxiing, sailing, seaplane base and airport operations, takeoffs and landings, emergency operations, and more. Whether you want to study intensely for the checkride to obtain a seaplane rating, or just review your knowledge and skills from the comfort of an easy chair, Seaplane Pilot will provide a welcome learning experience.
Dale DeRemer has also been called the father of the SEAWINGS national safety program for seaplane pilots by Water Flying Magazine. In the past 15 years, he has conducted his well known wilderness courses training hundreds of pilots, one-on-one, in the skills of wilderness seaplane operations from the rainforests and high volcanic lakes of Central America, to beyond the Arctic Circle. Seaplane Pilot draws from his extensive experience in water flying, using full-color photography and illustrations throughout. Also included are helpful sidebar notes that reference the key parts of the FAA's Seaplane Practical Test Standards (which is reprinted in the appendix), plus excerpts from pertinent FAA advisory circulars, and a bibliography for further reference.
