The inherent ability to land and take-off from water while carrying heavy loads of passengers and cargo made flying boats a natural stable in aviation's early and middle decades. Flying Boats differed from their floatplane brethren by being dimensionally larger in size and utilizing their boat-like hulls to traverse on water. Floatplanes, instead, relied on a pontoon arrangement as their undercarriage. A few notable floatplanes remain in modern times but the group has largely fallen into disuse with the rise of the helicopter and other systems to take their place.
There are a total of 40 Floatplane Aircraft in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order. Flag images indicative of country of origin.
