- waves & winds, weather is calm even in summer only for morning flights
- sea traffic
- small congested ports
- infrastructure problem, docks or "airports on sea"
- no proper certified type of composite flying boat available WW
Nice to see seaplane and take ride on nice calm weather
It is safe to say the negatives out weigh the positives then!

Although the German company "European Coastal Airlines" on several occasions in all the bells announced that the summer flying seaplanes from the city port to connect Split and the islands around it did not happen. The idea, however, to wait until the new Parliament the County Council after the local elections in May.
Leaders of German companies, recall, presented a project linking hidroavionskog Dalmatian islands with the largest coastal cities such as Dubrovnik, Split, Sibenik and Pula. The company has one of its aircraft, Grumman G-21A Goose with nine seats, while the rent, announced the media, took De Haviland DHC-6 Twin Otter with 19 seats, and Grumman G-111 Albatross with 30 seats.
Location for hidroavionsko dock in the port of Split is only provided in Amendment County regional plan, and that the area between the port and the chico hotel "Ambassador". As explained Zeljko Misic, assistant county manager for the marine and tourism, without the adoption of these amendments to the regional plan that was no hydroplane in the harbor.
- According to information from the responsible of the County Department of Planning, will probably go to a proposal to amend the plan for a new public review, which would mean that it will not be adopted in the mandate of the County Council. Before that there is no possibility for a settlement of this issue in the city spatial plan - explained Muscle. If a German company had to be patient, you will pass the bumpy road to their first landing seaplanes front Matejusa.
German companies 'European Coastal Airlines' will have to wait if he intends to develop the work of Goran SEBELIC Split / Cropix
The procedure is as follows: after being accepted locations in the County Regional Planning, requires the elaboration of a plan of a lower order, and that the Regional Plan of Split, in a way that on the basis of the plan can issue a building permit. After that it is necessary to determine the limits of the port area for the port, and then spend the records of the port area in the cadastre and land register. All of this is a prerequisite for tendering for the concession to hidroavionsko dock.
However, the Germans are not very technically prepared for cruise lines over the Adriatic. Grumman G-21 "European Coastal Airlines' currently does not fly, nor used. A few years ago written from a Canadian aircraft registration, and Croatian is not registered.
The aircraft is manufactured way back in the 1944th year and overhauled nine years ago. Grumman Goose has a star, ie, piston engines, and Aerosvijet is known to anyone who has tried to use such a plane without turbines must count on the very high cost of flight. For example, the cost of flying a Canadair CL 215 (also reciprocating engines) amount to 11,000 Euro per hour of flight. This fall the theory of cheap tickets.
As for the Grumman Albatross aircraft that ECA intends to hire, on the 80-ies of the last century, received FAA certification on their stellate-piston engines, but its commercial use in the world is not implemented yet. Certainly not about seaplanes over the harbor and the surrounding islands.
