SeaRey Seeks LSA Cert., Passes Milestone
With over 20 years in the business, SeaRey has become the most popular very light amphibian on the market, with a tight-knit community, some 500 examples flying and LSA certification expected within the year (hopefully by EAA AirVenture Oshkosh). The company prides itself on providing a safe, affordable, fun and versatile aircraft capable of taking owners into and out of areas of the country that might otherwise be inaccessible. It flies with an open or closed sliding canopy and has performance on a Rotax 912 or 914 that's well-suited to the LSA category. Customers say it's both docile in the air and maneuverable on the water. At Sun 'n Fun 2012, AVweb spoke with company president Kerry Richter about the roughly $35,000 kit (without engine or avionics) and the soon-to-be roughly $120,000 LSA; click here to listen to that podcast.
