SEAPLANE ADD-ON RATINGS
For already licensed pilots visiting Hawaii, we would be happy to work with you in obtaining a single-engine seaplane rating. One of the most fun ratings you can add! We are using two planes for our training. The first is a 1980 Cessna U206 with a 300 hp engine and constant speed propeller for the training. The second plane is a Dehavilland Beaver. The training is done on salt water and will provide you with some real experience in rough water, tides, and actual sailing of the aircraft. Seaplanes are our life and everyday vehicles, so we do not believe in the one or two day “quickie” ratings that are prevalent in the industry. Our personnel all got their seaplane experience in working seaplane operations – not doing training.
We are currently offering two specials on the training with seven hours of flight time and the necessary ground schooling.
The first package is for flight training with the Cessna U206 with a 7 hour flight time package for $2520 plus tax ($118.75). Each additional hour of seaplane training with the Cessna U206 is $420.00 plus tax ($19.79).
The second package is for flight training with the Dehavilland Beaver with a 7 hour flight time package for $3450 plus tax ($162.56). Each additional hour of seaplane training with the Dehavilland Beaver is $575.00 plus tax ($27.09).
We do accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and JCB. The FAA is giving the check ride so there are no examiner’s fees. Here again, we are so proud of our training that we utilize the FAA for the certification, no “examiner on staff” just signing you off after you pay the fee.
We are not primarily a training facility, so we usually need a week or two advance notice to fit you in the schedule. A deposit of $100.00 will reserve your time. Please allow a minimum of four days for the training. We are also offering a Canadian Pilot course to add a U.S. Commercial to their resume. They only need a Canadian license with a seaplane endorsement.
