That’s right, it’s a carbon-fiber two-seat sea plane full of awesome. How awesome? Well like we said, it’s a two-seat, carbon fiber sea plane. And the wings fold for trailering.

Other notable highlights include running on automotive or aviation fuel so you can pull it through the local Chevron station, a 100hp Rotax 912 ULS engine, 300NM range, 120mph max speed, and a flying boatload of awesome.
