Ocean seaplanes will replace among landplanes and current fleets of 11,500 active seaplanes. 

Capability-led expansion

Ocean seaplanes will expand markets in making seaplanes capable of routes and tasks not possible before and in making seaplane services affordable to a larger demographic.  The greatest growth markets include:

  • Connectivity between coastal and inland airfields and inter-city Regional Air Mobility 

  • Island nations needing improved communications but lacking airfields

  • Emerging markets with growing middle-income populations but lacking airfields

  • Highly developed markets where surface congestion demands point-to-point air travel
