Take to the skies and the seas on the Privateer. The Privateer is a prototype aircraft that is built for both water and land takeoffs and landings.

The most interesting thing about the Privateer is its single back-mounted engine. The engine makes the Privateer look like a jet boat, yet still gives it enough power to do 215 knots at 15,000 feet. Check out the links provided to learn more about this ambitious amphibian.

Keep your eyes on the water! You may see this plane out on the ocean sooner than you think.
