The G-44A is an American high-wing, twin-engine, amphibious light aircraft produced by the Grumman Aerospace Corporation in the late 1930s. Grumman envisioned a smaller version of its G-21 Goose, which had proven successful as a business transport aircraft. Called the Widgeon, the prototype of the aircraft first flew in July of 1940, intended for the civil market.

World War II intervened, however, and the production aircraft entered service for the militaries of the United States and Britain. At the end of the conflict, Grumman revisited the civilian concept for the airframe and released the G-44A Widgeon. The G-44A, with seating for six including the pilot, quickly became well-known as a reliable, durable machine eminently capable of operation from both land and water, notably in austere and remote areas like those of Alaska.

The Widgeon is driven by two wing-mounted Ranger 6-440-C5 six-cylinder engines that each produce 200 horsepower. The airplane has a maximum speed of 160 miles per hour, a climb rate of 1,750 feet per minute, and a ceiling of 18,000 feet above sea level.

A classic gem in the history of aviation, the Grumman G-44A Widgeon allows pilots to access the sky from either land or water, and do so confidently. From inside the cockpit of the burly machine, aviators can launch into the heights from a modern airport, then touch down on a river deep in the back-country, then leap again into the air from the shore. A go-anywhere craft, the Widgeon provides one of the rarest opportunities to be found in the world of aviation, one that combines piloting with exploration.

NOTE: If you plan to install a new operating system or change any PC hardware or even move to another city or Country you should run the un-installer before re-installing to prevent your registration key from being banned. Also some users ISP might change the IP or City from time to time so it’s always a good idea to uninstall first. This will update our installer system so you can re-install without an error code or install to another PC as our EULA allows the product on a single PC at a time. If you have no changes you can install as many times as you like on the same machine as it detects your PC hardware ID. Contact Flysimware with your error code and registration key if you do get flagged and we will address the issue. To prevent ever getting flagged always un-install before attempting a full installation.
