Paradise……….We all have our idea as to what that word means. The visions that we as pilots and passengers get to experience from the world above, gives this word “Paradise” a whole new meaning. In this episode, we speak with Captain Rudy Schloesing about what it is like to fly Twin Otter Seaplanes in the Caribbean and the Maldive Islands. Flying an airplane on floats brings forth a whole new set of challenges. For example, when you are taxing a float plane and would like to stop, there are not any brakes. This along with the complexity of learning how to steer the airplane on the water is probably one of the most challenging techniques to master as a new seaplane pilot. Being a seaplane pilot puts you into a whole new brotherhood and opens up doors that you could not imagine. Below are a few photos of Captain Rudy and the Twin Otter Seaplanes that he is currently flying.
To get a small glimpse into the world of flying a twin otter on floats, check out the video that Captain Rudy put together while flying for Seaborne Airlines in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
