The new Katmai combines the best of an efficient cross country airplane with an airplane designed to operate safely in the back country. In the past a pilot had to choose between having a comfortable cross country airplane or a bush plane for weekend adventures. It was not possible to have both in one airplane.
Not any longer. Peterson’s Performance Plus, Inc. will introduce its new airplane, named Katmai after an Alaskan wilderness area, at the AOPA Expo in Palm Springs, Calif., later this year.
In the standard configuration, the Katmai cruises at 150 knots on 13.5 gph with a useful load of 1,100 pounds. A large, comfortable, quiet cabin equipped with the latest avionics makes long VFR or IFR cross country flights a pleasure. In the Bush configuration, the Katmai’s low 35 knot stall speed and its ability to take off in as little as 320 feet will allow you to operate safely out of remote areas inaccessible to normal aircraft. With the Katmai’s 8 foot long and 3 foot wide cargo area, you can carry a complete camp site with you and still bring a friend along for that weekend adventure. The Katmai even has an on-board generator to power everything from camp lights to an electric chain saw.
No other airplane has the versatility or safety of the new Katmai.
