    Freedom Master Airshark amphibian

    Does anybody know about this aircraft,I stumbled on a kit for sale.The specs sounds interesting,however I could not find much info on the airplane real world performance.Can anybody tell me what is the good,bad,and the ugly about this aircraft.Any info will be appreciated.Also I read in a previous thread a discussion about using Push/Pull configuration with rotax 914 engines.Did anybody considered using a Mazda rotary (aspiration or turbo)as a power plant.Any thoughts,idea,or criticism regarding this are welcomed

    Yes,I did read the thread you referred to.All I could get from there is that there are some issues exist but nothing was mentioned about these problems.That is why I would like to know if I could live with these issues or are they serious enough to iron out.Thanks.

    Theeharts, where is your kit located? There is one for sale in New Jersey. I'm trying to keep track of how many kits were produced or still around. There are none flying currently. As mentioned in the above thread, there is a Merritt Island Florida AirShark that may be flying soon. There isn't much information on the AirShark. From what I have gathered, the opinion is it's tail heavy, low tail volume, water landing speeds are very high, and may be under powered for water operations. An analysis of the design and structure is recommend.
