Flight Reports


Welcome to the Seawind Flight Report page. In this section, aviation journalists will describe the manner in which the Seawind flies.

You will learn that the Seawind has a very light feel on the controls, and that many of the characteristics of amphibians, which have previously been a problem for pilots, have been eliminated. Read carefully and learn what it will feel like to actually have the Seawind under you as you reach out to explore those new worlds you have only dreamt about.

These flight reports were performed in the original Seawind experimental prototype, developed by S.N.A., who has given us permission to reprint the reports. The performance of the Seawind 300C will meet or exceed the results of these reports.
