Progressive Aerodyne, Inc.

3801 State Rd. 19
Tavares, FL 32778
United States

Progressive Aerodyne was founded in 1991 by Kerry Richter and his business partners, Wayne Richter and Paige Lynette. With a long family history of building ultralight amphibious aircrafts, the company took the opportunity to create a new amphibious aircraft design and named it the Searey. Thus, the Searey took form and began flying in November 1992.

The next year, the Searey Classic was introduced to the general public and was very well received, assuring two years worth of orders for the company and marking a place for the Searey name in aviation history. Since then, Progressive Aerodyne has enjoyed a dominant position in the light sport amphibious experimental aircraft market.
