    Hey, i'm new to the site and i've seen a few guys talking about PBY's and riding in them. I have a question for you fellas. Anyone know of a place where one might be able to get a ride in one. Since i was younger, all i can remember my dad asking for is a ride in a PBY and now that i'm older i'm lookin to fulfil his dream. Can anyone help?

    There's a few in Alaska, the Caribbean and in the South Pacific. I worked for a guy who owned one, flew on it a few times but never did any water landings....

    Go to the FAA website and do a search by aircraft model under aircraft registration, you'll find the PBY operators stateside.
