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.
