I am sure ECA didn't intend for that Lake to crash and certainly didn't plan to have the accident.

For the time being, ECA and seaplanes in Croatia are past and history, with its big time German "investors" looking to launch elsewhere.

EASA has made many many things simpler, but we are FAR from the ease of doing business and launching a successful business in the U.S.
The two systems do not compare at all and probably never ever will. Everyone who tells you otherwise is lying through their teeth.

No need to hack into each other over a bunch of people who have their money made and their problems solved.

Thanks!

Right.

History of commercial seaplanes operation on Adriatic goes far back, in between of two WW
In 1924 the first Italian commercial airline was born.

Fratelli Cosulich founded SISA-Società Italiana Servizi Aerei (Italian Company for Air Services), which in 1926 began its activity by running two flying boat airlines: line #1 connecting Trieste, Venice, Milan and Turin; line #2, connecting at first Trieste with Zara (now Zadar), grew in 1928 to cover also Lussino (now Mali Losinj), Ancona and Venice. Between 1929 and 1933 Fratelli Cosulich introduced new lines connecting Trieste with Genoa and Fiume (now Rijeka).

And military seaplanes even before during WWI

ECA is just one bad episode along the long way.
Hope we can expect some seaplanes on Adriatic again, soon...
