Kerala’s seaplane project is progressing right on schedule, but seaplane operators say that they would prefer to wait out the monsoon before starting full-fledged operations.

Bharat Aviation director P Joseph Doss said he was ready with a Cessna 208 but would prefer to wait till September. “There is no point flying for two months and parking the aircraft for the next three. It is not economical. Also, as the pilots will be operating under visual flight rules, we don’t want to compromise the safety of passengers, especially as we will be landing on water,” he said.

At the outset, seaplanes will operate from four locations – Ashtamudi, Punnamada, Kumarakom and Bekal.
