So the critical factor in deciding whether a floatplane can be used as a seaplane and whether a floatplane pilot can fly as a seaplane pilot is whether or not the seaplane can survive open sea operations and whether or not a floatplane pilot has the experience and knowledge to handle rough water landings or green water takeoffs.

Landing a floatplane on the water isn’t much different than a normal airplane with a couple of exceptions. First, you can often, but not always, land into the wind. Given a big enough body of water vs a narrow body like a river, orienting into the.
