SEAPLANE. A fixed wing aircraft which is designed to take off and land on water. There are 3 main categories of seaplane: floatplanes; flying boats; and amphibians. Floatplanes have pontoons fixed below the fuselage as opposed to flying boats where the fuselage touches the water. Amphibians are designed to land on both water and runways.


Seaplane - wikipedia

A seaplane is a fixed-wing aircraft designed to take off and land (alight) on water. Seaplanes can be divided into separate categories such as floatplanes, flying boats, and amphibians. The first seaplane was invented in March 1910 by the French engineer Henri Fabre. Its name was Le Canard ('the duck'), and took off from the water and flew 800 meters on its first flight on March 28, 1910.
