Colorado Seaplane Initiative

Below you can find some additional information about the Colorado Seaplane Initiative. CAOA does not have an official position on this.

The Colorado Seaplane Initiative is undertaking a major campaign to obtain fair and equal access to Colorado waterways.  The State of Colorado through its Parks and Wildlife Agency, has banned seaplanes from every public waterway in the State.  Colorado is the only State that forbids seaplanes in this manner.

Colorado is home to 16,000+ pilots, 800+ seaplane-rated pilots, and 38 seaplane owners.  General Aviation is a major economic force in Colorado producing an estimated $2.4 billion in annual economic impact.

The State’s claim of safety, security, and environmental concerns ignore facts and promote fears. General Aviation is the producer of an estimated $2.4 billion in annual economic impact to this State.
