Possible, but quite possibly not. It depends on the tech assumptions. And without some pretty drastic switches flipped, they won't have those ranges and speeds.

The other concern would be that everywhere is "somewhere". If the ocean is intensively farmed and entities are established on it, you may have those airstrips, even in the middle of the ocean.

To me it sounds like the OP wants the trappings of modern earth, but souped up to be ultra tech.
