If you have FSX or any previous P3D copy the missing files (panel, sound, interior.mdl and model.cfg) into the Beaver and Goose folders. Instant free water planes.

I have a kmz file for google earth that shows all orbx airports including seaplane airports so i usually just choose one of those.  Is there a particular area you want to fly in?  Maybe people could suggest some of their favourites.  ORBX has a freeware Nanaimo that is very nice.

If you have Orbx PNW... the Pacific Coast north of Seattle, all the way up to Alaska is Beaver territory.. but the Kodiak or Scout Amphibians are also favorites of mine.   The Kodiak has the benefit of being faster..

Once Orbx updates the coastal freeware packs to V5 (like Nanaimo and PNW Ferries).. you've got all kinds of neat places to fly around... Start by finding all the ferry terminals, they are documented with the Ferries pack..

Cool!  Didn't know you could do that.  Just took the Goose for a ride.

also, they are not supposed to be compatible but I just copied the Milviz Beaver files over and everything seems to function.

edit: may have spoken too soon - I don't think they are compatible yet. Best wait for new product.

I checked too and nothing. I think the panel for the Goose went away prior to P3Dv4
