Headstart Program

Head Start Program

Realizing  that many SeaRey builders would like to get in the air as soon as possible, we have developed our 'SeaRey Head Start Program'.  A builder schedules to come to our facility and completes the major assemblies alongside our knowledgeable staff.  Three different stages of construction are available.  Fees include rental of our space, tools, and knowledge.
