Float planes are airplanes that possess pontoons instead of traditional landing gear providing the capability of landing in water. However, pilots have been known to attempt the landing of these aircraft on an airstrip in certain situations.

When damaged, floatplanes may land on water near the airfield or alongside a friendly aircraft carrier for repairs.
