  In this book, the author examines a little-known aspect of Florida aviation history during World War II—specifically, the fact that thousands of student pilots received basic and advanced training in civilian and military aircraft in the blue skies above the peninsula.   Powered by Rotax as are all these LSA seaplanes, except for Aventura S, Super Petrel uses side-by-side seating in an aircraft with excellent manners in the water. Icon Aircraft A5 Thanks to sophisticated, California-style marketing, Icon Aircraft A5 is one of the best known models in the Light-Sport Aircraft space even though it is the newest of this group.

A seaplane is an aircraft equipped with floats so that it can take off from, and land on, water. On many seaplanes, the floats hold the aircraft’s fuselage (body) clear of the water. On others, called “flying boats”, the fuselage is shaped like the hull of a boat and rests on the water’s surface. Book Description: Written for pilots who want to transition from land-based aircraft to seaplanes, this guide is designed to teach the special maneuvers that are required for the FAA's seaplane rating and also gives insight into the important practical differences between flying landplanes and seaplanes.

U.S. President John F. Kennedy, learned to fly at an Embry-Riddle seaplane base in Miami during World War II. The training took place over 10 days in   Thanks to a small handful of people at Embry-Riddle, and a flight log from alumna and seaplane pilot Corinne Smith, a decades-long legend has been confirmed. In the course of just 10 days in May , Lieutenant John F. Kennedy would go from his first flight lesson to a solo flight.
