New York Skyports Inc. Seaplane base (IATA: QNY, FAA LID: 6N7) is a seaplane base on the lower East River in New York City, located at the foot of East 23rd Street between Waterside Plaza and Stuyvesant Cove Park. A seaplane ramp was constructed at East 23rd Street in the mid-1930s and the seaplane base became part of the marina that opened on April 18, 1962.

Operations

There are no instrument approaches for this airport as it is a seaplane base. Pilots must file a flight plan with a member of the North East Seaplanes Pilot's Association and are not permitted to fly over the Queensboro Bridge.

Most operations at the seaplane base occur between May and September, when flights are made for weekend getaways to Fire Island and The Hamptons, although seaplanes can land throughout the year provided that there is no ice in the river.

Accidents and incidents

  • On July 5, 1976, a Cessna 185E crashed into a boat during takeoff. Although the aircraft suffered substantial damage, the pilot was uninjured.
  • On July 12, 1998, a twin-engine seaplane flipped over after landing near East 29th Street and became submerged in the river. The pilot and two passengers escaped from the plane's emergency windows and were rescued by the police.
