Jack Brown's Seaplane Base

Jack Brown's Seaplane Base


Our "Land of 1000 Lakes" allows you to experience the last great freedom in flying. There are no concrete slabs that dictate your landing, no noise from radios and no worry about "busting" an airspace. You will be able to devote your time to the "Back to Basics" of flying (stick and rudder and head out of the cockpit). There is no doubt your land plane flying skills will be improved after flying our seaplanes.

Come let one of our professional instructors acquaint you with the most fun you'll ever have in flying.

Pilots flying in can land at Winter Haven's Gilbert Airport at taxi over to Jack Browns.

We also have information on getting your Multi-engine Seaplane rating - see link below.
