Avid Aircraft

Avid aircraft marketed a series of kitplanes that were somewhat similar to the Kitfox series of planes. Some of these planes could accept floats. Avid Aircraft also offered a three-seat amphibious aircraft, known as the Avid Catalina. Apparently the manufacturer has gone bankrupt and the exact status of the availability of this line of kitplanes is unknown.

We were able to locate a photo montage video of the Avid that shows the development of what the plane should look like as it goes through the build process.

Joachim Schaupp, an ultralight pilot in Germany, wrote in to tell us that he owns an Avid Flyer and thinks it is the best bush plane. (Although he says his dream plane is the DeHavilland Beaver.) Do you agree with him? Vote here.
