Aerocat co-designer Kirk Creelman has been working in the field of Composite Aircraft Design for over a quarter century and the Aerocat marks the culmination of his experience with composite design, form, flow and function. With rivetless seams, a low-drag coefficient and retractable gear, the Aerocat is a four-place aircraft on the kitplane market. The cabin measures 59" wide across the pilots chairs and 63" wide across the passenger and baggage area. This aircraft capable of a 180 mph cruise (at 55%) with either twin 135 hp Jabirus or 250 hp turbocharged engine. Range at 55% Cruise is a 1,100 nm. Aerocat Amphibian also offers the multi-platform concept, designed to house a single or twin configuration, and a purchase option which may or may not include floats. All Aerocats come off the production line with a "Floats-Capable" airframe.

The design is by co-designers Y.C. Cheng and Kirk Creelman. They devised an airframe that could accommodate a choice of twin or single powerplant options. The power arch configuration allows for a single 210 to 300 HP engine mounted in the middle of the arch or the twin 135 Jabiru Option mounted on each side of the arch. The pusher type propulsion mounted high on the arch also serves to keep the props high and dry for on-water applications.
