Seaplanes are an exciting and romantic prospect for flightcrew and passengers alike, but a demanding experience for those who build and operate the aircraft. Our special report goes to the Caribbean to look at the nuts and bolts of running an amphibian-based airline, and finds out what it is like to fly a Twin Otter. We also report on how a Scottish air taxi service is finding success, and discover how Canadian manufacturer Viking is protecting its Series 400 from the sea.
