Air charter is the business of renting an entire aircraft (i.e., chartering) as opposed to individual aircraft seats (i.e., purchasing a ticket through a traditional airline).
Air racing is a highly specialised type of motorsport that involves airplanes or other types of aircraft that compete over a fixed course, with the winner either returning the shortest time, the one to complete it with the most points, or to come closest to a previously estimated time.
An aircraft carrier is a warship that serves as a seagoing airbase, equipped with a full-length flight deck and facilities for carrying, arming, deploying, and recovering aircraft.
An amphibious aircraft or amphibian is an aircraft that can take off and land on both land and water.
Boarding is the entry of passengers onto a vehicle, usually in public transportation.
In physics, buoyancy or upthrust, is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed object.
A bush airplane is a general aviation aircraft used to provide both scheduled and unscheduled passenger and freight services to remote, undeveloped areas, such as the Canadian north or bush, Alaskan tundra, the African bush, or the Australian Outback.
In fluid dynamics, drag (sometimes called air resistance, a type of friction, or fluid resistance, another type of friction or fluid friction) is a force acting opposite to the relative motion of any object moving with respect to a surrounding fluid.
Floats (also called pontoons) are airtight hollow structures, similar to pressure vessels, designed to provide buoyancy in water.
A flying boat is a fixed-winged seaplane with a hull, allowing it to land on water, that usually has no type of landing gear to allow operation on land.
The fuselage (from the French fuselé "spindle-shaped") is an aircraft's main body section.
Harbour Air Seaplanes is a scheduled service, tour and charter airline based in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.
Landing is the last part of a flight, where a flying animal, aircraft, or spacecraft returns to the ground.
Landing gear is the undercarriage of an aircraft or spacecraft and may be used for either takeoff or landing.
The following is a list of seaplanes and amphibious aircraft, which includes floatplanes and flying boats, by country of origin.
A livery is a uniform, insignia or symbol adorning, in a non-military context, a person, an object or a vehicle that denotes a relationship between the wearer of the livery and an individual or corporate body.
A mooring refers to any permanent structure to which a vessel may be secured.
The Nakajima A6M2-N (Navy Type 2 Interceptor/Fighter-Bomber) was a single-crew floatplane based on the Mitsubishi A6M Zero Model 11.
The Coupe d'Aviation Maritime Jacques Schneider, commonly called the Schneider Trophy or Schneider Prize (sometimes incorrectly referred to as the Schneider Cup, a different prize), was a trophy awarded annually (and later, biannually) to the winner of a race for seaplanes and flying boats.
A seaplane is a powered fixed-wing aircraft capable of taking off and landing (alighting) on water.
A supplemental type certificate (STC) is a national aviation authority-approved major modification or repair to an existing type certified aircraft, engine or propeller.
Tigerfish Aviation is an aerospace research and development company based in Norwood, South Australia.
A modern torpedo is a self-propelled weapon with an explosive warhead, launched above or below the water surface, propelled underwater towards a target, and designed to detonate either on contact with its target or in proximity to it.
A torpedo bomber is a military aircraft designed primarily to attack ships with aerial torpedoes.
In physics, a wave is a disturbance that transfers energy through matter or space, with little or no associated mass transport.
World War II (often abbreviated to WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier.
