SPA's Mission Statement

Protecting and Promoting Water Flying

Our Vision

The Seaplane Pilots Association is the only organization in the world solely focused on representing the interests of seaplane pilots, owners and operators. SPA is dedicated to promoting safe seaplane operations, and to protecting the sharing of our nation’s waterways with other user groups.

SPA staff, field directors and members work across the nation to ensure fair access for seaplanes through positive environmental stewardship and proactive cooperative relationships. We work with pilots, the public, and local, state and federal regulatory agencies and governing bodies to provide insight and facts about safe and responsible seaplane operations so that conflicts can be resolved and policy decisions made from an informed perspective.
