I can't find the picture you posted... Plane in the cove...

What a great place to have a plane on floats...

The only set back I can think of... Salt Water...

But I can only IMAGINE the fun places you can reach...

Cool. Is there anywhere to rent seaplanes, or at least charter one?

OK... You guys are Divers...

Do you follow the rule about not Diving and Flying the same day ?

Or does the lower altitude type flying have little effect ?

Or.... does it matter how deep you dive... ?

As for my Challenger I hardly see 800 msl, so not concerned

For commercial pressurized cabin flights,

Single Dives: A minimum preflight surface interval of 12 hours is suggested.

Repetitive Dives and/or Multi-Day Dives: A minimum preflight surface interval of 18 hours is suggested.

For Dives requiring decompression stops: A minimum preflight surface interval of greater than 18 hours is suggested.
