    Super Petrel?

    Is the Super Petrel available in the USA as a ready to fly plane? I can't get in touch with the US dealer. Their phone is another business.

    Re: Super Petrel?

    The Dealers owner died in a plane crash while transition training a customer who purchased a S-100 amphibian (a Spanish plane). I to had talked to Petrel USA LLC. a couple of weeks before the accident and then could not get them to answer e-mails or the phone.
    I was in touch with the Edra Aeronautica, the Brazilian manufacturer and they said I could purchase direct from them. As far as there ready to fly Super Petrel, They gave me a price for it.
    51% Kit was $27,780.00 and 75% Kit was $35,810.00 which was a finished plane less engine and electrics. And ready to fly was $77,727.00. Which was the same price I got from Petrel USA LLC. Shipping to Tampa Florida was
    $ 5000.00

    Re: Super Petrel?

    Thats the best price I have come across for a complete Amphibian. All the others are $129,000.00 to & $150,000.00+
    And the Kit Price is a lot better value than other amphibian kits I have researched.
    As soon as I can come up with the money, I'm getting one.

    I recently purchased 2 Super Petrel Kits from Brazil. One is almost complete and I was thinking of selling the other kit if anyone is interested. My name is Gary Taylor and I put a clip on You Tube under "Super Petrel 100" I am in Alberta Canada....

    How much? Any pics of the kit that you have, not stock pics from the factory? Your video had a add on it. Are you a dealer for Canada?

    Thumbs up Re: Super Petrel?

    I am having problems sending pictures to you. Can you give me your e-mail address so I can forward them please. I just wrote a long message to you and it was lost uploading the pictures. Anyway the I went to Brazil last November after researching the Super Petrel on the Internet. The plane was
    exactly what they say it is........amazing. It opens up a lot of opportunity in flying. As far as being a dealer, it's not like there is a large production line on these planes, I have #192 and #193. Maybe it is a little different in the USA for being a dealer, but up in Canada there is more opportunity .......maybe. I guess I got a little too exited when I ordered them, but the shipping is about the same for two as one. Now don't be fooled on the price from Brazil. I am into each kit alone for $69k USd, but that is including shipping, taxes, and everything needed to complete exept the 912 ULS rotax. #193 is almost complete with only the wrapping of the wings and the final inspection to be done, which will probably run $120k when finished including my time to build. I have had a lot of interest in it up here, but they all want to see it when it is complete. I will sell the kit(#192) for what I have into it if you are interested...Gary

    Re: Super Petrel?

    Sorry, business still bad. No money and haven't won anything yet. I could only afford the basic kit at first any way, not all the extra kits you have with the kit.
    Got a price of $27,780.00 plus Shipping.

    More pics please.
    Where are you located?
    I wish some one had one near Florida so I could go see one in person. I need to see and sit in it to compare it to the Sea Rey SLX.
