Dear Friends:

A few short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

Seawind International Seawind seen in The Secret Agent Club.

The Seawind is an amphibian aircraft designed by Seawind International in the beginning of the 1980's. This homebuilt four places airframe is powered by a single engine on the leading edge of the very large vertical fin. So the 3-blade propeller (sometimes a 4-blade is used) is pulling the aircraft at 169 mph (272 km/h) at cruise speed. This layout makes the Seawind easy to identify (the other amphibians of this class built by Lake Aircraft have a pusher propeller on a pylon).
The first design was the Seawind 2000 which flew for the first time in 1982. In 1994, the first Seawind 3000 took off with some changes in order to have better water handling and more power and from now a canopy which open at the back (instead the sideways-hinged on the Seawind 2000).
Usually fitted with a Lycomin flat piston engine, a handle of airframes have been modified with an Allison or a Pratt & Whitney turboprop. In order to gain certification and extend use, the Seawind 300C was developed but did face several hard times during testing and the 2008 financial crisis, those events delaying the process which is still under way.

Since 1982 about a hundred Seawind have been built or are still on the workbench.
