The full-color magazine is published six times a year and distributed internationally to members. A separate special issue, the Seaplane Training Directory is published every spring. SPA members receive both the print and online digital versions of each issue.
Water Flying and the Seaplane Training Directory also are distributed free of charge to participants at Sun ‘n Fun, EAA’s AirVenture Oshkosh and other major aviation shows and events.
Water Flying is the only magazine dedicated to covering the seaplane community with seaplane safety and how-to technique articles, pilot reports on aircraft and floats, seaplane travel and destination insights, news and new-product announcements, and a detailed calendar of seaplane events and activities.
Water Flying readers are a special breed—pilots who have made a commitment to go beyond the Private pilot certificate to learn and enjoy a form of flying that calls on specialized skills, procedures, and equipment.

Fully three-quarters of the Water Flying readership owns a seaplane, and just over a third own multiple aircraft. They are early adopters of technology, intensely curious about new products, financially independent, and they enjoy travelling to exotic places.
