This factory built LSA is the Fun Ship of the Fly Synthesis range, fully composite and stainless steel construction, with removable/foldable wings for simple transport and simple maintenance. Economic fun on the water and in the air, certainly the simplest amphibious seaplane to fly and hanger - with folding wings. A fully enclosed aluminium trailer with drop down ramp makes trailering it long distances it a breeze, perfect for exploring the country in a mobile home.
S/N: F5AB0 007 - A1AB
Flight Time: 35

Folding wings make hangering simple and simple wing removal allows the robust Catalina to be simply loaded in an optional fully sealed alloy road trailer with a counterbalanced ramp for self contained un-loading. A Galaxy BRS system mount was ordered with the aircraft to allow the optional Chute to be field fitted for extra safety.
The Catalina features a full Analogue panel with inbuilt VHF comms to feed the x2 near new helmets with inbuilt mics/headsets. 12vAux sockets support iPAD or iPhone charging and allow the water jet pack to be powered from the inbuilt aircraft battery
Reliable ROTAX 582 electric start/automatic oil addition (averages >100:1 auto mix), full composite construction, including wings/empennage mean after a day aloft or on the water, just a simple wash down via the supplied water jet pack is all it needs
Fully composite white polished exterior boat style hull with stainless fittings and fastenings, with new Vinyl decals to the new Fly Synthesis design available. The hull is fitted with full buoyancy, for safety on the water. The exterior/interior presents 'as new', as you'd expect with its low hours and maintenance. A High windscreen option with side deflectors is fitted and it comes with new seaplane safety gear and x2 near new helmets/visors for comms and 6 months warranty.
Seats: 2 Smooth fully composite grey 'boat' interior lining with tilting composite seats and dual seatbelts are fitted with boat style bungs for drainage of any water splashes. A careful simple flush/drain and wipe down is all that is needed for cleaning, plus normal composite polishing as needed.
