Only Certified Single-Engine Amphibious Production Airplanes
Currently Certified For Production
After over 40 years of ownership and several unsuccessful
attempts to sell previously, Revo Inc. is again offering for sale
the assets of Lake Aircraft, reportedly the only FAA-certified
single-engine amphibious airplane produced in the world. The
offering includes all of the intellectual property and equipment
needed to manufacture the Lake Renegade, Seafury and Seawolf
More than 1300 Lake amphibian aircraft are flying in over 50
countries around the world.
“The sale of Lake Aircraft is a rare opportunity to
quickly set up manufacturing operations and continue production of
the successful line of amphibious airplanes,” said Armand
Rivard, President of Revo Inc., the Lake Aircraft holding
Revo Inc. purchased the rights to the Lake Aircraft company in
the early 70’s and has been manufacturing and marketing the
airplanes since then from its facilities in Florida, New
Hampshire, and Maine until the market went South. The offered
assets include the FAA Type Certificate (#1A13), global
manufacturing and marketing rights, component and assembly tooling,
dies, jigs and engineering drawings for the Lake amphibian
airplanes. A team of Lake experts will also be available to assist
in the transition and continued production.
Most importantly, the company claims that "there is no risk
involved with development and certification because the Lake
Amphibian is a certified and proven design."
The current line of Lake Aircraft traces its lineage back to
Grumman Aircraft Corp. and has evolved into an aviation classic
that was once a major player for personal, business and
government uses. The Lake holds eight world records for speed and
altitude in its class of aircraft.
Responding to demand from governmental clients for enhanced
multi-purpose capabilities, Lake modified the structure to
accommodate greater gross weight, expanded fuel capacity and
additional internal passenger/cargo configurations. Designated the
Seawolf, this Lake variation also comes equipped with under-wing
hard points for installation of a variety of external payloads.
With these new features, the Seawolf appeals to commercial and
government markets where it is now used for research, search and
rescue, environmental control, patrol and reconnaissance, law
enforcement, air evacuation, anti-smuggling and special
