The idea for the Goose came in 1936, when a group of wealthy industrialists wanted an easier way to commute from their homes on Long Island to Wall Street. They hired Roy Grumman to build them ten airplanes that could take off from land and land on the water near the financial district. By the end of World War II, close to 350 Gooses had been built. They helped the U.S. military with fast and reliable

transportation to remote locations all over the world.

Goose History

Incorporating modern day technological advances enhance the airplane’s capabilities and performance. Advances such as updated avionics, improved anti-corrosion protection, and state of the art sound proofing materials will make the Antilles G-21 a far more commercially viable airplane than the original.

The Modern Day Goose offers many upgrades from the original Grumman Goose. New engines give the aircraft a larger gross weight and a faster cruising speed.

With new engines and larger gas tanks this seaplane has the capability of hauling ten people. With a gross weight of 12,500lbs you can take what you want, where you want. Larger gas tanks

give the Goose a range of 1,200 nautical miles without re-fueling.

Pick a Destination

The new Goose is large enough to go wherever you want and take just about anything with you, but it is small enough for private ownership. This seaplane only requires one pilot so if your destination is just to go out and have some fun flying for the day it is possible! With the modern turbo prop engines made by Pratt & Whitney there is less maintenance and improved performance allowing for takeoff and landing in smaller areas.

Private Ownership

With its ability to land in water as shallow as 36 inches you can land in most lakes. After the landing just put the wheels down and taxi up into shallow water to park. With the new engines come the capability for reverse, so you can literally back up to the beach.

Private Ownership (continued)

With this seaplane you are free to go anywhere! The Goose is built strong so it can handle most weather conditions but is still light and agile in the air. Get in and have a great time!
