    Hi everyone, I know this is not a new built but an imported avid Catalina from the US but after working 6 months on the aircraft to get it sorted out and doing the necessary paperwork for the import inspection I feel I deserve to post in the completion section :)....

    This avid is fitted with a rotax 912, in flight adjustable prop and electric retract gear. I keep it at home in my garage and launch from a nearby lake.

    Cheeeers, Laurent

    How are you liking it? Nice looking for sure. Does it get out of the water quick and have you landed and taking off from land with it.
