These posters, found via Saturday NYC, were not fromt he same era that Pan Am flew seaplanes. But Pan Am did fly seaplanes, as well as pioneer intercontinental flight.

Critical to Pan Am’s success as an airline was the proficiency of its flight crews, who were rigorously trained in long-distance flight, seaplane anchorage and berthing operations, over-water navigation, radio procedure, aircraft repair, and marine tides.
