Crowds Gander At New Goose


Antilles Seaplanes made its first appearance at Sun ‘n Fun 2008 and the company says it hopes to be delivering newly-manufactured modern versions of the venerable Grumman Goose in the next year or two. The company has the type certificate for the aircraft and has been developing the manufacturing processes at its plant in Gibsonville, N.C. and the company says it’s getting close to actually building aircraft.

A company spokesman said that rather than taking advance orders, the firm wanted to ensure it could actually build the aircraft. Now that they’ve determined the plane can be manufactured again, they’re getting ready for the marketing of the plane. Radial and turboprop versions will both be offered.
