Seawind 300


The Seawind 2000 amphibian offered by Seawind International of Ontario, Canada, was designed by Rodger Creelman and first flown in 1993.

The pylon-mounted engine sits well forward of the fin leading edge, giving an impression that it might part company if subjected to gyroscopic or turbulence loadings. However the mount has been subjected to - and survived - a 20G test loading, twice the required FAA certification requirements. The Seawind has a wingspan of 35 feet, a MAUW of 3100 lbs and provides a cruise of 145 knots on its fin mounted single Lycoming IO-360 consuming 10 US gallons each hour.

The four seat Seawind 2500 amphibian design is of composite manufacture, and first flown in 1994. The amphibian's power source is a 200 hp tail-mounted Lycoming IO-360; cruise is noted at 145 knot.

The certified Seawind 300C is manufactured Exclusively by Sea Air Composites Inc, a single engine 4/5 place amphibian.
