VIDEO: If Your Float Seaplane Lacks Water Then Have it Launch From A Truck Trailer On The Centerline

By  | 

This is how you takeoff with a straight float seaplane if you are lacking water to takeoff from. Simply lineup a truck with a trailer along the centerline, then the driver of the truck starts speeding up, and as soon as the trailer starts rolling, the pilot of the seaplane adds power as well. As soon as the seaplane reaches takeoff speed, it lifts off, banks right, and flies off to its destination. Well done guys! You might ask, how did that seaplane land at that airport in the first place? Well, they landed on the grass next to the runway, most likely for maintenance, or have floats switched for wheels.
