Clinton, Mirage A3-42 is probably the closest to do that in private hands. But I think that the project has sadly stalled due to the cost and complexity. Perhaps try searching "friends of mirage a3-42"?

Having a look at the brand new Cessna Caravan EX on floats. For those who don't know it is the first time Cessna has offered a Grand Caravan body on floats!

Yours for 3 million plus options. Jury is still out whether the short body is worth it or not! And for $500k saving (bare in mind this is a float pilot speaking).

A couple of nice B/W shots there PM. Thought it was a T-6 at first, but no. BT-13 perhaps?

A couple from me out and about on a nice day in an aeroplane that you don't see around much these days....











....a great machine none the less.

Wally, it's a 700P. It packs 350hp a side through twin turbo'd 540's. And you're right, goes like shit out of a shanghai. The only Aerostar to come with 400hp engines was being developed by the factory back in the mid seventies. The engines were twin turbo'd IO-720's. It was to be known as the Aerostar 800 and there was only one built, but Ted Smith died in 1976 (it was his baby) and the aircraft never made it to production.

The Corsair looks superb. Going by the cowl it looks to be an F4U-5N. In combat trim the R2800 in these things ramped up to 2850hp at takeoff when everything was working as it was supposed to.
So if one had to choose between 2,850hp and 700hp....



....2,850hp wins every time! Beautiful.

The Aerostar Aircraft Corporation did finally finish the 400HP version - just with slightly different engines....
