Seawind Aircraft is a perfect union of form and function. The sleek
flowing lines make it the most striking of land or seaplanes. We
have developed the world’s best and fastest four/five place
The spacious cabin,
panoramic view, quiet environment and form fitting seats all combine
to create total travelling comfort. The spacious cabin accommodates
four executives or a family of 5 with three children. Whether your
mission is cross country travel or a business trip to the city,
Seawind does it all—fast.
integrity and versatility of a high performance amphibian make the
Seawind the go-anywhere aircraft.
The cost of the Seawind is comparable to any four-place land plane
despite its superlative structural integrity.
The Seawind 300C accelerates quickly down the runway. At 70 MPH, a
one hand rotation is applied and the craft lifts off between 70 and
CLIMB: With the landing gear retracted and
the flaps set to zero, the Seawind 300C will climb dramatically to
CRUISE: The cruise configuration is with
flaps reflexed to -10°. Once trimmed straight and
level, the Seawind 300C is truly a hands off machine
LAND LANDINGS: Landings on land are normal
with a gear down speed of 140 MPH maximum, and a flap down speed of
120 MPH. The pattern speed is 90 to 100 MPH with flaps at 20°
as you apply a little up trim to what feels naturally comfortable.
Full flaps are applied and propeller set to high RPM on the final
leg with the speed at 90 MPH. After crossing the threshold at 80
MPH, flare to a touchdown speed of between 65 to 70 MPH.
WATER LANDINGS: Landings on water are
virtually the same as land landings except, of course, the landing
gear is up. Final approach is at 90 MPH, with full flap, at high
RPM. A few feet above the water, the Seawind 300C is leveled and
slowed to 80MPH and the nose is raised to about four degrees.
Throttle back and the Seawind 300C lands on the step at 65 MPH.
STEP TAXIING: Step taxiing can be
performed with full flaps or reflexed flaps. The time onto the step
is a couple of seconds quicker with zero flaps. The wings are held
level and steering is performed with the air rudder.
WATER TAKEOFF: Water takeoffs are
comfortable. The Seawind 300C rises onto the step virtually by
itself. A bit of up elevator is applied as the bow wave moves by.
The controls are then relaxed and with full flaps at 62 MPH, the
Seawind 300C flies itself off the water.
TURNS: Like any amphibian of high thrust
line aircraft, turns should be coordinated with rudder and ailerons.
PITCH CONTROL: The Seawind 300C has superb
pitch control. A full power go around just above the water is easily
executed with one arm pull back. The nose will not drop.
CROSS WIND LANDINGS: Carry a little power
in a cross wind landing to make the air rudder more effective.
Idling the power tends to block the flow over the air rudder. So,
apply just a little power.
STALLS: Stalls are gentle and straight
ahead, with a warning buffet.
Avionics: There are three
avionics packages available. The basic VFR system is comprised of a UPS
Apollo audio with intercom, GPS/COM and mode C transponder, built-in
electronic location transmitting beacon-ELT. All antennas are built-in.
See "Options" for other avionics and autopilot packages.
Lighting: The basic aircraft is equipped with all lighting required for
night and instrument flight including:
Dual landing lights
Whelan nav/stobe lights
Cabin dome, map and panel lights
Special Equipment: Each Seawind 300C is equipped with the following
Condition warning system which monitors:
i. Power plant overheat or fire sensor
ii. Fuel or flammable vapour detector
iii. Water in bilge sensor
Automatic bilge pump with manual bypass
Seawind 300C Optional Equipment
The following options will be available at additional cost:
Airframe optional exterior paint detailing in your choice of select
Hydraulic assist nose wheel steering. This independent system will steer
the Seawind by the push of a switch or manually by differential braking or
Inboard/outboard water motor. This special design gas fired water-cooled
motor is mounted in the nose compartment and is lowered through the hull
bottom. It will move the Seawind forward, aft, or to the side at speeds up
to 4 to 6 knots with the big Lycoming engine shut down.
Seawind 300C Optional Avionics
The Seawind will be available with a variety of avionics. Although the UPS
Apollo system is featured, other equipment such as Garmin or King will be
