Renting a seaplane in the USA has become difficult due to insurance problem. There are only a very few places where a seaplane pilot can rent a seaplane and fly solo. I found a great solution at Tavares FL, America’s Seaplane City. Here you can join the Jones Brothers seaplane flying club for moderate costs, with a seaplane insurance and six hours seaplane flying included. Rob and his crew are easygoing and helpful.
Unfortunately I was not able to fly it solo due to insurance coverage for this specific plane. Hopefully next time this will be solved and we can use it for trips. Below a flight with Kerry, the developper of the amphibious Searey. They are only a few miles away from Tavares.
