HELPING YOU TAKE OFF

Expert advice, training and resources to help you set up a seaplane business.

The Most Exciting and Romantic Transport on Earth

Setting up a Seaplanes business doesn't need to be the headache you might imagine. Sydney Seaplanes Global is the only consultancy in the world that runs its own seaplane business. We're also the only company that offers a complete advice, implementation and training package to help you set up a seaplane operation from scratch. Our numerous national awards, commercial and global success are a result of our people’s competence, experience and expertise.

OUR CLIENTS

Taking a course with Sydney Seaplanes was the best decision I ever made! You’re doing something you love in the most beautiful harbour in the world, the trainers are incredibly professional and yet friendly and helpful – I just can’t recommend them highly enough. I have since become a Cessna Caravan Amphibian Capitan on Andaman Islands, so you could say that having done the course in Sydney enabled me to realise my dream.

We are very impressed by the highly professional manner in which Sydney Seaplanes conducts its business – Aaron and his team run their operation like a clock. They hosted us and Vietnamese Government officials in Sydney, and we could clearly see the respect they command in the industry, most notably with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. It’s reassuring for us, we know we’re in good hands.

We chose to work with Sydney Seaplanes due to their previous experience in setting up seaplane operations and found the management and staff to be extremely helpful and professional. The cooperation with Sydney Seaplanes helped us speed up the approval process by addressing any issues preemptively. We highly recommend Sydney Seaplanes Consultancy as a partner for any seaplane operation.
