History of Seaplanes

Seaplanes were invented by Henri Fabre, however the history of seaplanes in the UAE began in 1937 when the civil aviation signed an agreement to base a flying boat of Imperial Airways with a rental fee of about 440 Rupees/month.

Seaplanes are now a common part of the Dubai skyline, no longer the strange sight that fascinated locals. Seawings remains the only seaplane operator in the UAE and its fleet has grown to three Cessna 208 amphibian aircrafts. Our 45-minute scenic flight swoops past the heritage of the UAE, taking in some of the world's highest and most recognisable buildings. Panoramic views of Dubai offer a timeless look at how the desert has been architecturally transformed, the scorching yellow sun stretching out beside glistening towers and shimmering ocean.

It's become an allure for international visitors and a unique way to experience one of the world's fastest growing tourist destinations.
