DESCRIPTION: The Be-103 light amphibious aircraft is designed for passenger and cargo transportation; medical evacuation; fire prevention, surveillance, and maritime environmental monitoring operations; recreational flights; and agricultural applications.
The Be-103’s amphibious capability allow it to operate in areas with sufficient water surface (rivers, lakes) and remote regions where runway construction is either impossible or economically unfeasible. Certificated in compliance with the AP-23 requirements, the Be-103 also got the ICAO certificate in Dec. 2001.
The aircraft is fitted with integrated flight navigation and communications systems enabling operation in adverse weather conditions, by day and night. On customer request the aircraft can be fitted with autopilot, satellite navigation system, and weather radar. All versions can be equipped with a copilot (instructor) flight control station.
