Educational Videos

Educational videos are an important part of any educational endeavor including seaplane education for pilots and enthusiasts and the non-flying public. Thanks to social media and the internet educational videos can be distributed easily, inexpensively and to larger audiences than ever before, but production costs can be significant.

The Seaplane Foundation continually evaluates educational topics that can benefit from video exposure. Some more recent subjects include:

  • Boating and seaplane compatibility
  • Seaplane safety topics including prevention of amphibious landing gear-related accidents, use of personal floatation devices, and avoiding power lines, among many others
  • Understanding the problem that the spread of aquatic invasive species poses to seaplane operations
  • Aquatic invasive species inspection processes for seaplane pilots

Along with distribution to the seaplane community and the non-flying public that might come in contact with seaplanes, educational videos can be useful to waterways managers, decision-makers and policymakers who could influence seaplane operations.

The Seaplane Foundation is fortunate to have internal video production capabilities, however more resources are needed to expand the range of topics and ensure the highest video production professionalism. The Foundation welcomes private donors and corporate partners to help fund continued production of seaplane educational videos.

Projects that currently require funding are:

  • How to prevent gear-down water landings
  • Lifesaving techniques for successful emergency underwater egress
  • Invasive species decontamination of seaplanes
  • Seaplane scholarship success stories
