Welcome to Brown’s Seaplane Base

Since 1963, Brown’s has trained over 17,000 seaplane pilots from all over the world. Mr. Brown chose the central Florida area as the location for his base because of its abundance of freshwater lakes and superb flying weather.

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.
