The Strata-Flyer is a flying boat invented by John Whittaker in the Adventures in Odyssey video series.

Development

As described in the episode #440: “I Slap Floor”, the Strata-Flyer is "a flying machine made out of a boat with oars and big helium balloons".

Video Series

As with many inventions of Whit's, the Strata-Flyer seemed to just "appear" in the video series.

Audio Series

The Strata-Flyer is an invention that is never mentioned in the audio series, besides a tongue-in cheek reference in #440: “I Slap Floor”. In the episode, Bernard Walton tells Mandy and David Straussberg a series of strange stories that supposedly happened during the previous week. Bernard doesn't refer to the Strata-flyer by name, but instead recounts Whit giving a description of his "new invention" as proof that he was not acting strangely, when he clearly had been giving bad advice.

According to "Whit," his new invention is:

a flying machine, made out of a boat, with oars! And big helium balloons! And a propeller! We can use it to rescue people!

When Connie Kendall and Tom Riley view this explanation as further proof that Whit is behaving strangely and needs to rest, Whit replies that they will

...all be sorry next time someone falls off a clock tower!

which is a reference to the use of the Strata-flyer to save Dylan in A Fine Feathered Frenzy.
