There arenít many Seabees that have been restored and maintained to this level and far fewer are offered for sale. N6222K is one. Completed in late 2010 by Avian in Bremerton WA, it has been flown only 47hrs since then. Speaking from experience, there is no way one can one can buy a Seabee and restore it for this price. My loss is your gain. This Seabee has undergone a top to bottom, inside and out restoration. All surfaces have stripped, cleaned and painted. The bottom was removed, the wings dismantled and all control surfaces opened. Then the modifications began: IGO480 with a Simuflight conversion and Hartzell reversible Prop, extended wings, Cleveland brakes, auxiliary electric hydraulics, Southwind heater, Whelen Nav/Strobes, landing lights and many more. Virtually everything on this plane is new or like new.
