Seaplane Pilots Association Australia

The Peak Body on all Seaplane Activities in Australia

                      Representing ALL Seaplane Pilots                          

Training to become a seaplane pilot can be the most exciting and life-changing step you take in flying. The Seaplane Pilots association of Australia attempts to keep an up to date listing of current instructors and training organisations that provide float, floating hull and amphibious training and endorsement. SPAA makes no judgement on the suitability of the listed individuals and organisations for your particular requirements or the quality of their programs.  We recommend you meet and talk with potential trainers who interest you in order to determine their suitability for your needs.  If possible, talk with others who have used their services. Please keep in mind that you will be spending many hours sitting along side your instructor in what can at times be tense situations, so always consider how easily you relate to the instructor as well as how competent they are in training.  While we try to keep this list up to date  we will appreciate any feedback from you in regard to new training organisations or any that have ceased operation.
