Aero Adventure, Inc.

Aero Adventure offers what is likely the lowest cost boat-hull seaplane in the light aircraft space with a kit that, complete with engine, sells for less than $50,000. Add a long history to its credit and Aventura is a seaplane worthy of a close look.

Seaplanes are highly enjoyable and usually quite expensive, even in the Light aircraft sector. “Surely,” you may think, “a $49,000 price tag has to be a loss leader,” that is, just something to grab your attention but not what you want to buy ... right? So, how much does an Aventura II truly cost when a typical owner completes the building job? “$55-56,000,” reports producer Aero Adventure. No matter how you evaluate it, that is an excellent value for an airplane with a history in the decades.

Like most companies, Aero Adventure has been around long enough to have different owners today. Lead by Alex Rolinski, this is a young team with backgrounds such as FAA Airframe & Powerplant credentials. The present day company can tally nearly 200 Aventura models built but that’s being conservative with their numbers. Pressed to count all the airplanes of this type, leading back to the original Buccaneer, the number leaps up to about 1,000 aircraft. In light aviation that is a very solid fleet size that shows the appeal of this well-proven design.

Because Aventura is a kit aircraft, it can be offered in a wide variety of configurations and personalized even further by the owner/builder. One choice such craftsmen will find useful involves a selection of engines. Aero Adventure works with AeroMomentum offering the 117-horsepower Suzuki conversion. This is not some used engine modified for use on an airplane but a brand new engine block to which engine developer Mark Kettering adds the components needed to make the AM-1300 or AM-1500 an interesting and complete choice that conserves your cash. Aero Adventure also offers the handsome Viking engine and for those that want the light aircraft industry’s most popular engine, they offer the Rotax 912 as well (as pictured above on Tanille DeLair’s orange-accented Aventura II that she named, “Juliette.”)

Aero Adventure is located at the DeLand, Florida airport, home to several other light aircraft companies about 30 miles inland from the Atlantic ocean city of Daytona Beach, where they enjoy year-round good flying weather at a most welcoming airport (even the restaurant is great). The team encourages a visit where you can examine their efforts of kit building and can look over component depictions that have been completely converted to CAD drawings.

  Aero Adventure -- New owners of Aventura amphibians
We all know the Aventura line of formerly ultralight-based amphibious light aircraft, dating back 20 years. Recently, Alex Rolinksi took over the company as the new owner and he details some plans as the company becomes re-enegized. Alex, an A&P and longtime pilot, gives us some general ideas about prices and they are to be celebrated as the costs are about as low as an seaplane can be. Hear and see the line on this video.

"Arnet Pereyra — Aventura I" by Dan Johnson.
 
Mini Report begins: In the spring of 95, ultralighters got to see our brand-new company called Arnet Pereyra explode on to the scene. A boat-hulled Rotax 277-powered ultralight delighted pilots of all interests. Though this type of design in around awhile, it’s been years since one was offered that qualified under FAR Part 103. A boat hulled amphibian ultralight is permitted 30 extra pounds for the hall and another 20 pounds for the sponsons. Even with help from the allowed extras, making an amphib fit the Part 103

  R Aventura II
"Arnet Pereyra — Aventura II" by Dan Johnson.
 
Mini Report begins: As if their 103 single place Aventura wasn’t enough of a winner, the Arnet Pereyra company also introduced the Aventura II, an amphibious hull aircraft built for two to sit comfortably side by side. Like all the Arnet Pereyra aircraft, this is another effort by highly regarded designer, Carlos Pereyra. The first models were powered by the 582 Rotax engine. After filling an order for the Volusia (Florida) Sheriff, the company also developed the design to work with the 80-horsepowered Rotax 912 engine.

"Aventura II" by Dan Johnson. Published in Light Sport and Ultralight Flying, February, 1997.
 
Pilot Report begins: If you've never flown an airplane on floats, you've missed a glorious experience in flying. Good as any ultralight on floats may be - and that means "quite excellent" in my opinion - even those pilots with that experience may have missed the unique sensation of a boat-hulled ultralight. With a few thousand hours in my logbook covering everything from foot-launched hang gliders to twin-engined Barons, I can honestly say my absolute favorite hours are spent in one of two ways: first is soaring flight,
