  1. floatplane

    A floatplane is a type of seaplane, with one or more slender pontoons (known as floats) mounted under the fuselage to provide buoyancy, allowing it to land on water. It differs from a flying boat, which has its main body act as the floating hull. Floatplanes are often used in remote areas where there are no proper runways but have water bodies for operation.
