Your article that includes the Seastar [“Aircraft Guide,” Buyers’ Guide 2012] is most appreciated. However, there are several statistics that are incorrect and it creates the illusion that there is a small payload and an extremely short range.

We obtained our specifications and performance figures for the Seastar from aviation data supplier Conklin & de Decker. Conklin & de Decker estimated those figures based upon the limited information provided to it by Dornier Seaplane. The numbers we published, therefore, reflect the data the manufacturer supplied. To determine range for all turboprops, including the Seastar and the Viking Twin Otter, Conklin & de Decker assumed NBNAA IFR 200 nautical mile reserve fuel and all seats full (200 pounds each).--Jeff Burger, Editor
