Seaplanemagazine.com is THE most up to date news & media site for seaplane pilots as well as owners of seaplanes and flying boats. We reach a growing international audience of professionals, business executives and industry decision makers, aircraft owners, mechanics, designated pilot examiners, instructors and pilots. We bring at least one article per day, covering more than just Seaplanes editorially.

We receive “News & Media Releases” in General & Business Aviation, feature Guest Editorials, or find interesting things from the aviation world and bring them to you in the form of this online magazine. Sometimes our articles deal with history, cool videos, industry developments, or just news, as we receive them. We do offer product reviews, book reviews and work hand in hand with our media and news partners. We do have a Seaplane Job section available for advertising open positions for pilots & mechanics.

We always appreciate picture submissions and some short text along with it. We do not pay for featuring commercial photographers or their work, nor can we pay guest editors for their articles.

Editorial Guidelines

While we do honor embargoes, we cannot follow publishing deadlines. Submissions from everyone, on any seaplane or aviation related topic, are welcome. We do not publish paid articles and will not accept payment for disseminating certain news or campaigns unless requested in the form of a paid and properly disclaimed advertorial. If particular news releases are full of advertising text and contain no information of value to our readers, we may offer you to run it as a paid and properly disclaimed advertorial. However, we reserve the right to deny or refuse content submitted to us for any reason.

Opinions presented are always owned by their author. If you submit previously published material to us for consideration, please indicate where the text has appeared initially, so that we can disclaim this properly.

Corrections/ Complaints/ Letters To The Editor

We welcome your information or heads up if we have published erroneous or incorrect information and will correct our articles to reflect those changes. Should we fall short of your expectations or in case we have made a mistake, please contact us through email. Legally responsible publisher and owner of this website is Jason J. Baker.
