The proof of concept Seawind has logged 2,000 hours, most of them between the company’s Pennsylvania headquarters and manufacturing facility in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. Dick Silva, Seawind’s president, has flown all but 60 of the 2,000 hours. Those 60 hours were flown by a test pilot during early test flights. The company is now preparing flight test plans for approval by Transport Canada. The amphibian will be certified in both Canada and the U.S.
