If you hold an ATP multi-engine land certificate and take a multi-engine seaplane checkride, the multi-engine seaplane will add to your atp certificate. You need not demonstrate instrument approaches in the seaplane.

I obtained an AMES rating in 1995, no instrument approaches demonstrated. I'd already held ATP AMEL since 1991. The AMES rating went on my certificate as "Commercial Privileges: Airplane Multiengine Sea".

Is what you refer to a post-August 4th, 1997 change, a guess, wishful thinking, or a DPE/Inspector/FSDO's discretion thing??

Presumably, you really mean: it will add to your ATP certificate as Commercial Privileges, you do not have to demonstrate instrument approaches, unless you want your AMES rating at the ATP level.

GM,

I did a couple approaches on my ride but not to the water and got AMES added to the ATP. I doubt I'll be back working before next fall so I'm thinking about trying that guy north of Dallas and bringing the ASES back to work.

What the hell is the point of doing an instrument approach in a seaplane? How many lakes out there that you know of have an ILS approach?

Coincidentally, this month's AOPA Pilot magazine has an article about world's largest seaplane fly-in at Moosehead Lake in Greenville, Maine:

AOPA Online: Splash-in

Not only is Greenville one of the few towns in America with a seaplane base right in the heart of downtown (the town literally wraps around two intersecting water runways), it is one of a handful that can boast an instrument approach to a lake.

Default Multi -Engine Seaplane Training in a Legend

Multi-Engine seaplane training in a Grumman Goose is offered in Alaska.
B-81LLC provides an award winning 1944 Goose, perhaps the most original example of a military JRF-5 Goose. Instruction is conducted by a nationally recognized Grumman instructor/ pilot and author Burke Mees.
For information see the website The Goose Hangar: Flight Instruction | MES Ratings in a Grumman Goose

You've obviously never flown in Alaska.

One of the changes of August 2014 was the addition of a requirement to have 50 hours in class for an ATP. So you can no longer just pass a checkride and add a class rating at the ATP level.

John Gowey at Kenmore is the guy to talk to. Phone call to him and he'll set you all up.

Some of the best 135 flying out there. Great company, atmosphere, pilots.
Land or Sea ops.

Great way to build TT and PIC Turbine Time
