What's New

New plane! We now have the Russian ground-effect seaplane the A-40.. moved here from X-Plane EXTREME since this plane is a better fit for this app.

Now, the sound DOES come back after getting a phone call, which was a problem in recent releases.

Some autopilot improvements to track heading better when in heading mode, which is useful for the longer flights.

The EFIS PFD now always indicates within the 0 to 360 range, never outside of that. This is what you see in real airplanes.

App Description

Now this a FUN little App.
Because you asked for it, we give you: X-Plane SEAPLANE.
We are starting off with a Canadair CL-415 Water-Bomber, Cessna 172 on floats, and a SeaKing twin-turbine helicopter to take driving, flying, and swimming.
All of these craft are amphibious, so they can handle water ops, as well as land on the paved runways.
Can you master the water take-offs and landings as well as the ones from dry-land?
Can you descend from hover in for a smooth water landing the SeaKing helo?
All of the dynamics here are realistic, and the new water rendering is pretty impressive… can you handle these flying and swimming challenges?
We can.. and they are pretty darn fun!
