The oldest seaplane flying organisation and seaplane flying school in the world. Founded in 1930, in the place where these aircraft have been flying since 1913, the Aero Club Como runs the most important flying school for seaplane pilots on the continent. The school works both with beginners and with those who are already pilots that wish to complete their training with a hydro rating.
With a flight that starts from the hangar there is the chance to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the lake and its most beautiful features. From the command post, with an instructor at your side, you try out the main manoeuvres, and are given instruction on the reading of instrumentation and given an understanding of how an aircraft works. If you enjoy your first experience, you can continue with a course until you get your own private pilot's licence.
The fleet includes 13 seaplanes and is the only one that includes all types, that is float and hulled, pure hydro, and amphibious. Of particular interest are the historical seaplanes, all in perfect flying condition, that offer pilots the pleasure of using machines designed and built in the 1940s. The Club's pilots and their guests use the seaplanes for local flights, trips around the lakes and for journeys to destinations throughout Europe and the Mediterranean.
