Join us Saturday, March 28th & Sunday, March 29th, 2020 for our annual SEAPLANE-A-PALOOZA!

Seaplanes fly in from all over the nation to participate in this event and you can see them up close and personal! Whether you’re a pilot, aviation enthusiast or simply curious about amphibious aircraft…you don’t want to miss this! We are expecting record numbers of many makes and models!

Seaplanes will begin arriving and signing up to compete in the flying contests Saturday throughout the day. Jones Brothers Air and Seaplane Adventures will be returning with their Seaplane Bingo Games! If you have never seen Seaplane Bingo, here is your chance! In an effort to give back to the community Jones brothers will be offering scholarships to local students to pursue aviation training. Spectators will also be able to play on land! 

Flying contests will include the fastest takeoff, “watermelon bomb drop,” and spot landings.

SEAPLANE-A-PALOOZA 2020 will provide opportunities for spectators to see a variety of seaplanes, visit with exhibitors and vote on their favorite seaplanes! Stop by the Information Tent for our Seaplane Beauty Pageant Ballot. 

Tavares Seaplane Base identifier is FA1.
