BushCat Amphibian Seaplane
While already available in tricycle and conventional gear, this answered the call of most bush LSA pilots worldwide. Adding floats to the BushCat was however inevitable and amphibious floats seemed all the more practical. Purchase price, ease of maintenance and low running costs were still key factors in designing the amphibian BushCat and it is now the best priced amphibious LSA in its category!
