puddle hopper

slang A very small airplane used to travel relatively short distances, such as over a small body of water (a "puddle"). We had to take this tiny little puddle hopper since it was such a short flight from Dublin to Edinburgh. Are you sure this puddle hopper is safe? It looks like it runs on triple-A batteries!
