Our Company has been continuously building fine amphibious aircraft for over fifty years and in that time, more than 1300 AMPHIBIANS have been delivered worldwide. This dynamic aircraft has operated all over the world and seen duties ranging from personal transportation; gold exploration; air ambulance work; missionary service; instruction; patrol; tourist charter; fish spotting and logistical support for the timber industry. These represent only a few of the uses to which operators have assigned our Amphibians. The ability to land, coupled with the ability to transition, between the land and water has resulted in a diverse utilization of these aircraft.
According to a recent survey, these aircraft are operating in the following areas and countries of the world.
UNITED STATES AND CANADA
By far, the greatest number of our AMPHIBIANS has been delivered in the U.S. and Canada over the years. Uses of the aircraft in this region include exploration for gold in Canada; remote charter and air ambulance work in Quebec Province and missionary work among native North Americans.
Our AMPHIBIANS are used in the United States for patrolling the Everglades for the National Park Service; fish spotting off the coast of Alaska; logistical support of land crew changes for a barge line on the Mississippi River and on numerous occasions, for aerial photography.
Other uses include Search and Rescue Missions for the Civil Air Patrol (the Civilian Search and Rescue Arm of the U.S. Air Force) in Massachusetts; Safety patrol for the Grand River Dam Authority in Oklahoma; Waterway Patrol for the Marine Patrol in the State of Florida, as well a Pipeline and Power line Patrol in several additional states. Over all, our AMPHIBIANS are most widely used through the United States and Canada for transportation to and from coastal waters, rivers and lakes.
