The Avid Catalina is a three place airplane that can take-off of land or water. It's even better than amphibious floats because this airplane uses tundra tires and can taxi up on the beach.

The Catalina is a kit produced by Avid Aircraft. The airplane was introduced in 1986 as the Avid Amphibian, but after many upgrades the model designation was changed to the Catalina in 1992.

This plane was formerly named Avid Amphibian.
