Anderson EA-1 Kingfisher

 

ea-1kingfisher

 

Earl Anderson, a Boeing 747 Captain, spent nine years developing the EA-1 Kingfisher at a cost of $5,500, and first flew it on 24 April 1969. At that time, it used a 100-hp Continental 0-200, similar to the Volmer VJ-22 Sports-man, which served as a design inspira-tion. Later, Anderson switched to a 115-hp Lycoming 0-235-C1, and by January 1975 had logged more than 600 hours on the amphibian. Seating two people side-by-side in an en-closed cabin, the Kingfisher uses stan-dard Piper J-3 Cub wings, with tip floats of mahogany and plywood covered with fiberglass. The fuselage also is wooden, the framework covered with plywood and fiberglass. The landing gear is retractable.

200 sets of plans had been sold by 1978.

The wings can be Piper J-3 or similar, and the one-step hull is plywood.
