Notes of a Seaplane Instructor is a distillation of all the tips, techniques and procedures of a veteran flyer and teacher, in an accessible and informative format. Author Burke Mees has an affinity for the "feel of the floats on the water" and how to communicate it in writing, as well as a sensible, professional approach which lends a truly "one-on-one" aspect to reading his book. All the seaplane maneuvers are covered, starting with preflight, proceeding through taxiing, takeoff, landing, and postflight procedures; also operating in various water conditions, stability of the aircraft on the water, step-taxi and -turn, and much more. Many illustrations, taken from and inspired by the author's own original flight instruction notebook sketches, help to further explain the concepts. In this new second edition, Burke provides even more notes on technique and performance particular to the world of floatplanes, with a special emphasis on safety and the best kind of pilot decision-making processes that keep seaplanes flying. The Second Edition also features an added chapter on multi-engine seaplane flying, and an appendix with notes on "pumping the floats" and "ropes and splicing." What is it like to fly single-engine float planes? How do pilots develop and then hone their water-flying skills? What techniques apply to both landplanes and seaplanes, and which ones belong in only one realm? The answers to these questions comprise a unique approach to seaplane flying, in a book that reveals what floatplane mastery is really all about. Notes of a Seaplane Instructor offers insights to all pilots, from already-rated seaplane pilots to those looking to experience the benefits and pleasures of seaplane flying for the first time.

"This book covers the basics for an initial tailwheel and ski checkout and contains commentary on the finer points of these topics. It is meant to be useful not only to the beginner first making the transition, but also to provide insights to the pilot or instructor who is already flying these kinds of airplanes. Most skiplanes are tailwheel airplanes and in the northern latitudes, ski flying is a seasonal variation of tailwheel flying. A lot of people fly a tailwheel airplane on wheels in the summer, then put the same airplane on skis in the winter. A tailwheel checkout is often followed up with a ski checkout and the author keeps to that same sequence of events in this book. Readers will benefit from clear explanations that have proven effective with students throughout the author's extensive career, distilled from two decades of experience in flying and flight instructing in tailwheel airplanes and skiplanes. An orderly presentation of all the topics required to develop tailwheel/ski competence are included for both basic topics (needed for the tailwheel checkout required by regulations) and advanced topics (such as flying multiengine tailwheel airplanes and ski-flying on glaciers and sea-ice). The book does more than just explain the list of topics, it anticipates and preemptively addresses the questions and difficulties experienced by the average student. It presents the material according to an organization the author has found to be effective in the course of his own instructing. In addition, you will be exposed to insights about the learning process that will help prepare you for flight training"--Provided by publisher.
