SEAPLANES, LLC LAUNCHES “SUPER GOOSE” AMPHIBIOUS AIRCRAFT PRODUCTION
Gibsonville, North Carolina USAAntilles Seaplanes, LLC announces that it has begun accepting deposit orders on the production of completely new “Antilles Super Goose” amphibious aircraft.  Based on the legendary Grumman G-21 Goose, our version has been modernized to current day aviation standards to include turboprop engines, the latest in glass panel avionics, carbon fiber composite material technology, interior environmental systems, and a variety of other technological improvements over the original airplane.  Additionally, a highly specialized version of the Goose is currently being developed by Antilles for potential use by our nation’s Special Forces.  

The “Antilles Super Goose” is an extremely versatile twin engine, 10-seat “true” amphibian, designed to take off and land on water (minimum depth of 36 inches in oceans, bays, rivers or lakes), paved runways, remote grass strips, rough dirt strips, and snow.   The landing gear is fully retractable, and the Goose offers speed, rough water capability, cross wind ability, payload, range, economics, and ruggedness unmatched by any other aircraft in its class.  This multipurpose airplane can swiftly adapt as global civilian, military, government and special humanitarian support needs dictate.  It is the true “All Terrain Vehicle” conquering air, water and land.

The Goose has a generously proportioned interior with additional storage areas in both the nose and the tail.  The aircraft is powered by twin Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A turboprop engines that produce a cruise speed of over 200 knots (approximately 230 miles per hour), a useful load in excess of 5,500 pounds, and a range of over 1,200 nautical miles (six hours plus instrument flight reserves).
