Description
This operational handbook introduces the basic skills necessary for piloting seaplanes, skiplanes, and helicopters equipped with floats or skis. It is primarily intended to assist pilots who already hold private or commercial certificates and who are learning to fly these aircraft types. It is also beneficial to rated seaplane pilots who wish to improve their proficiency, pilots preparing for flights using ski-equipped aircraft, and flight instructors engaged in the instruction of both students and transitioning pilots.
The book introduces the future seaplane or skiplane pilot to the realm of water operations and cold weather operations, and provides information on the performance of procedures required for the addition of a sea class rating in airplanes.


Previously published in the Airplane Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-3), this information has since been removed from that text (with the introduction of the FAA-H-8083-3A). The Seaplane, Skiplane, and Float/Ski Equipped Helicopter Operations Handbook features full-color illustrations and photographs throughout, as well as straightforward discussions and explanations for:


Rules, regulations and aids for navigation
Principles of seaplanes
Water characteristics and seaplane base operations
Seaplane operations (preflight, takeoffs, landings)
Performance
Skiplane operations
Emergency open sea operations
Float and ski equipped helicopters

More about ASA

ASA was started as Merrell Aviation Ground School by Creighton Merrell in 1940. The company�s primary goal soon became the training of post-war military pilots returning from active duty to work in the early civilian airlines. Plotters, regulations and training manuals were the first products. In 1960, the company broadened its production and development efforts with additional pilot supplies and books added to the ground school training line. Aviation Supplies and Academics, Inc. does business as �ASA�. ASA is the leading publisher of aviation books and the largest producer of pilot supplies in the USA today, providing trusted materials for more than 76 years.
