Republic RC-3 Seabee Amphibian. Republic, better known for their military planes, commenced manufacture of the unusual RC3 Seabee amphibian in 1945 and ceased in 1947 after 1060 units had been made. In 1945 the U.S. Army Air Force and U.S. Navy placed orders for several thousand Seabees for war time air-sea rescue duties but these orders were cancelled when Japan surrendered in August 1945. Today (2009) over 250 Seabees are still registered and flying, mostly in private hands but a few still serve as air taxis and light freight bush planes. Complete package for FSX/SP2 (DX9 graphics) with full moving parts, 2D and VC panel, check and ref lists. A real fun plane, flies and floats beautifully. Two liveries included. By Jean-Pierre Brisard and Bob May - Premier Aircraft Design.

There used to be one of these tied down on the ramp next to my fathers plane back in the late fifties. I dreamed of owning that thing every time I saw it parked there. Now I have one and its great. I think the flight model is a little slipperier than a real one is, because it seem to float for a long time, in ground effect. And it has a pretty good rate of climb. I think if you like anfibs. you'll enjoy this one. Nice art work too.
