Seaplane Rating

*** We are working to restart this course soon. Please check back frequently ***

Landing on water (on purpose) is one of the most thrilling experiences you will have with your clothes on.  High Flight Aviation lets you earn your seaplane rating quickly and most importantly, with more fun than you’ve ever had in an airplane!


High Flight Aviation offers a unique experience to add to your pilot resume.  Our course is currently done October through May on the Colorado River and Lake Havasu and May-October in the beautiful Northern Idaho (Lake Coeur d’Alene, Lake Pend Orielle) area.  We are currently taking reservations for the 2024 season.  Bring your significant other, family and dog with you and let them relax on the beach while you land on some water (while they watch)!  HFA offers Seaplane Courses to accommodate most everyone’s tastes.  Whether you are looking for an add-on rating for your current certificate or a new Commercial Certificate with Seaplane privileges, we have a course that will work for you.  Now, with the new regulations in place with the FAA that state Commercial certificates do not have to be done in a complex airplane, we can not only help you get your seaplane rating add-on, but also your commercial certificate in one of our aircraft and at a discounted rate.

There are no prerequisites for the course, however, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you are current and proficient in a GA airplane before taking this course..  Those that come to us with no preparation and little recency of experience typically require additional time.  If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
