The first clue that I’m in for a not-so-ordinary demo ride is when pilot Kerry Richter takes me through a departure stall (power on) over a small Florida lake. He shoves the throttle forward, then hauls back hard on the stick, right to the stops. Suddenly, I’m looking through the windscreen…straight up at the deep blue Florida sky. The deck angle is ridiculous. What’s this, rocket-launch time? And the SeaRey just hangs there and never breaks.
