    Are there any good seaplanes out there already?

    Besides the Ikon and Grumann Goose I mean. The Goose is super cool btw.

    If, with a very slim chance I ever won the lottery I would buy one of these custom jobs and take up flying lessons along with moving back to BC!!! Pity the Airstream caravan don't fly I would hitch one up on the rear ha

    I really do hope someone takes this project up for FS2020......

    Maybe Aerosoft might, considering they are making a nice Twin Otter right now... a Beaver would be a natural sequel project! And honestly, I think the Beaver and Twotter are very much loved airplanes.

    A twotter would nearly be as good as a Beaver. I actually sat next to the pilot in a Beaver out of Vancouver (Harbor Air) on a scenic flight - it was great.
    How do you know that Aeosoft are working an a twotter as I couldn't find anything at the web site?

    Nice!

    Though I lived close by, I've never actually been inside a Beaver or floatplane, parked or flying!

    At the south of CYVR Vancouver Intl, there is a sizeable seaplane operation there, with two different docks for different companies, and a water ramp to grab the seaplanes and haul them out of the water. Strange vehicles, they usually take an old car or truck and cut the back end off!

    In this second video, that's actually at the very ramp at CYVR, and the wooden building on wood poles, serves two functions: that's where the seaplane passengers check in, and give their luggage, before walking down to the floating dock, and the majority of the building is a restaurant bar/grill called "The Flying Beaver"! I've probably been there 10 times in the past, and is always fun during a lunch or Friday night! Eat a nice meal, have a cold one, while chatting with good people, and watch the Otters and Beavers either come and go, or just gently rock to the tiny wave action... no cover charge, not any more expensive than any other bar/grill/restaurant, but the view is awesome!


    I did get a short ride in a Twotter though, Air Force, when I was young, and they pulled some 2 or 3 G turns to amuse us! They wanted us to all sign up as fighter pilots, or at least be inspired to!

    WOW. I have never seen such strange looking vehicles.
    Thanks for the link to the twotter is progress.
    This is of Vancouver harbor where we had the scenic flight in a Beaver (not my video) and it shows some Beavers. The only downside was that the pilot was very uninterested in us and hardly spoke.
