    Default G-21 Super Goose

    A friend emailed me this photo of a new Seaplane called the G-21 Super Goose manufactured by Antilles Seaplanes out of Gibsonville, North Carolina. I am just wondering if anyone on the forum has actually got a chance to see one of these new seaplanes. And if you have what do you think about them? wondering if we will ever see one flying up here in Alaska. Being out here in the bush we used to see Freshwater Adventures flying their Grumman Goose all the time transporting anglers up to the lakes here in Southwest and Western Alaska. The old Grumman was an awesome aircraft, but I have to say this new turbo Goose is a real beauty, hope one day I get to see one flying around up here in Alaska.
    Anyone know if airplane manufacturers usually allow visitors to visit their facilities? If I ever get back to North Carolina to visit my dad, I would really like to take him to see one of these planes. My soninlaw would probably like to come along on the trip too, he just got certified as an A&P Mechanic. Thanks

    Wow! Are these all new construction or a mod?
