So You Want To Fly Seaplanes
By Sporty's Pilot Shop
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Seaplane flying is an exciting way to rediscover the fun and freedom of flying, or add that rating pilots covet. Now, this iOS App from Sporty’s can help you get your feet wet.
In this Seaplane app, you’ll travel to the famous Jack Brown’s Seaplane Base in Florida 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 the different taxi techniques you’ll use, how to read the wind and the 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.
Using a visual menu system, So You Want to Fly Seaplanes is broken down into 14 individual video segments. Based on Sporty’s 50 years of aviation education experience, So You Want to Fly Seaplanes contains over 60 minutes of engaging animations, in-flight video and real-world tips and tricks. It’s perfect for anyone interested in the world of water flying.
Also included is a review quiz based on content from the videos. After finishing the questions you’ll receive instant feedback on your score and be able to review missed questions. There’s even a way to quickly review the video segment from which the question was taken!
So You Want to Fly Seaplanes includes the FAA Seaplane Operations Handbook for additional study – complete with a table of contents for quick access to each page
Sporty’s Pilot Shop is the world’s leading provider of aviation training material, having trained thousands of pilots for over 50 years.
So You Want to Fly Seaplanes was developed with AirPlay video support. This allows you to wirelessly stream the video segments from your iPhone or iPad to compatible AirPlay devices, like the 2nd generation Apple TV (iOS 4.3 required for AirPlay streaming).

Not much content for $35
App and videos were fine but I didn't feel like I learned much. I got through everything in less than two hours or so. I wouldn't recommend paying $35 for this. Maybe $15. And when you buy it they say you'll get a free screen cleaning cloth, but shipping is almost $10 so I skipped that, too.
