About this listing

I am an experienced adventure traveler and Trans Atlantic, Arctic seaplane pilot and this is my rocket ship.

If I happen to be flying where you'd like to go GREAT. It's share expenses only. You can sleep onboard or in the tent.

The Space

Want something truly different? Sleep on a cosy double bed on Smix, the international lake-going seaplane. Your floating cabin on any European lake that I happen to be going to. I don't take requests - and the flying is share expenses only.

The Cessna 206 on floats can leave 4 seats at home and sport a double bed in the large passenger/cargo area.

Smix can fly to just about anywhere in Europe given the right timing, legals, and weather. Favourite places are lakes in Sardegna and main land Italy. After a night on the plane - or at a medieval hotel nearby - we can continue on to stay at the Nobleman's loft in Rome ( or the Mercanti Penthouse (

Come along for the delivery flight to your lake on an expense sharing basis only. I pay my share of expenses and I decide where we go. This is not a charter flight nor a commercial business.

For guests of one of my earthbound places, I'll save a seat aboard Smix, the seaplane, on our next not-for-profit & shared expenses voyage. See the "Barcelona & S France Seaplane Flyers Club" for more info. If you were planning to go from Rome to Barcelona or Monaco or vice-versa this might be just the "ticket". Share fuel expenses only. My experience/qualifications: Cross Atlantic Flight '2009, Artic and N. Pole Voyage '2010, FAA SES ,Instrument Rating.

Guest Access

You'll have use of my tent on the beach. I'll also be glad to plan a place to stay on land for you. I charge for use of my tent. I also ask for gasoline expense sharing as authorized by the FAA. I pay my share of expenses for any trip. I do not operate as a charter. I plan a number of trips and people can join if they choose to share expenses.

Interaction with Guests

I'm a friendly pilot except during landing and takeoff... Please see seaplaneflyers for all about it.
