Seaplanes and amphibious aircraft have always represented the dream of humanity par excellence: a flying machine that was the harmonious combination of airplane and boat, without limits, able to be used on the runvays, rivers, lakes and the sea from which to take off and to land safely.

They have been used in all areas of flight: for speed, reconnaissance, rescue, comfort, speed, exploration, adventure. From the roars of the Schneider Trophy engines to the luxurious interiors of the China Clipper or English, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Russian seaplanes during the golden age of aviation.

In extreme inhabitants, in the wildest areas of Alaska and Canada, in the remote islands of the oceans, seaplanes have often represented the best, if not the only, means of transport. Even today, pilots and tourists, but also fishermen and explorers rely on these aircraft in many parts of the world.

Race

For a long time it was thought that seaplanes, with their ability to take off from the huge spaces of lakes and seas, thanks to their clean and hydrodynamic lines, had the chance to become the fastest aircraft. From 1913 to 1931 the Schneider Trophy represented the most epic race ever, where planes reached unthinkable speeds, from 74 to 709 km/h (from 46 to 440 mph).

Luxury

From the end of the Great War until the advent of jets, flying boats represented the imagery of adventure and luxury. They reached the remote lands, crossed oceans, carried passengers on the most fascinating and romantic routes. Seaplanes such as Sikorsky, Latecoere, Dornier, Boeing, Short, Kawanishi, CANT represented the best that aviation could offer in their time.

Records

From around the world of the Douglas World Cruisers in 1924 to the ocean rides of Francesco de Pinedo or Italo Balbo with its SIAI Marchetti S.55, many records were set by seaplanes. The French flying boats piloted by Mermoz, the 12 engines of the Dornier X, up to the titans of the sky, like the Hughes H-4 Hercules, the gigantic “Spruce Goose”, the plane with the largest wingspan ever built.

Charme

The great seaplanes of the past reached all continents: Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa, Oceania, the polar lands. But still today they are used in many areas of the world, such as Canada, Alaska, the Amazon, the tropical islands, the inland seas. Fishermen and hunters reach remote places with this versatile aircraft, which even today, in some areas, is irreplaceable.
