The new seaplane base on Lake Gerosa – FlyEurope TV

On 21st July, on the Italian Lake of Gerosa, in the Marche Region in the Province of Ascoli Piceno, a new waterway for the landing of seaplanes was inaugurated.
It is another step forward in the Fly2Italy project, a kind of ideal motorway in the sky that will offer a series of equipped landing areas for flights arriving from the North of Europe.
The other towns that are getting organized to provide this aviation tourism service are Costa Volpino on the Iseo Lake in Lombardy, the Caccamo Lake in the Marche, and Gallipoli in Apulia.
The main objectives of the local administration of Lake Gerosa are to promote this stopover as a reference point for central Italy for seaplanes that are travelling from north to south, to guarantee incoming quality tourism to the area, as a potential stopover to connect Italy to the dozens of waterways that are available in Croatia, as a tourist destination with spectacular attractions, and as a specialized centre for people who wish to train in flying seaplanes.
The creation of a flying school is in fact planned in an existing lakeside building, which will offer pilots from all over Europe the chance to obtain the licence that is required to pilot these planes, during a specific period of study.
The waterway in Gerosa, which complies with the Italian ENAC regulations, is now authorised to welcome seaplanes, and soon jetties and docks will be created to provide safety for the planes and crews, providing mobility all over the country.
Let us listen to the comments of some of the people who have worked on this new and important innovation in the European small aircraft sector.
