The design of this amphibious aircraft began to be developed by American engineer and designer Rutan Bёrtom in 2012 year, moreover, the appearance of the aircraft is almost no indication that the aircraft has the ability to carry off and landing on water surface.
Aircraft Rutan SkiGull focused exclusively on the private operation, while, in fact, the aircraft is a multipurpose aircraft, because it can carry on its board of not only people, but also small loads, it can be used as a sports aircraft, etc.
For the first time in the air plane Rutan SkiGull rose in November 2015 years, at the same time tests were successful, and since the year 2016 aircraft of this model was sent into production. Nevertheless, it should be clarified that the plane produced American aircraft manufacturer solely as self-assembly kits, and, with a relatively small and simple assembly work, the cost of the aircraft is still very profitable.

Among other things, the plane Rutan SkiGull can also carry out landing in the snowy terrain, which mainly contributes to the special design of the winter gear, made in the form of skis. If necessary, a perfect landing, the pilot need only use the appropriate toggle switch on the control panel, and from the special compartment will be released ski chassis, which comes with the airplane in a single package.
The cabin of the aircraft Rutan SkiGull calculated by only two people - the pilot and passengers, however, due to the large amount of free space in the aircraft cabin can also be placed and a number of payload, with the proviso that its weight will not exceed 220 kilogram ( taking into account the weight of the pilot and passenger).
Powerplant Rutan SkiGull aircraft consists of a piston aircraft engine Rotax 912iS capacity of 100 hp, which in turn allows the aircraft to reach speeds in 315 km \ h. (Cruising airspeed). However, aircraft manufacturers are also provided the ability to install and more powerful aircraft engine, which in turn allows the aircraft to carry and larger mass, and accelerate to high speeds. In addition, the aircraft also possesses two small power plants are used to navigate through the water surface, which may also be involved and during the flight, which will allow the aircraft to develop additional traction in 24 hp
