The Republic RC-3 Seabee Released by KC Flight Shop

Posted on Mon, 13 Feb 2012 20:07:03 GMT

KC Flight Shop has released the Republic RC-3 Seabee.  The Republic RC-3 Seabee is an all-metal amphibious sports aircraft which was designed by Percival Spencer in 1944. Percival Spencer was at the controls when the RC-1 made its first flight.

The RC-3 was very popular – there were 1,972 civilian orders for the $3,500 airplane by the end of 1944. Republic Aviation was given the rights by the Navy to use the name Seabee for the civilian version of the aircraft. Today, more than 6 decades after production ended, the Seabee remains the most popular amphibian on the market for used aircrafts.
