Manufacturer  Amphibian Airplanes of Canada

The AAC SeaStar is an amphibious biplane that was produced in kitplane form. The aircraft is built largely of composite materials and features wings that may be easily removed for transport, and a ballistic recovery system in the form of a parachute that can be deployed from the engine nacelle.

A version of the SeaStar is marketed by the Brazilian company, EDRA Aeronautica, as the EDRA Aeronautica Super Pétrel.

AAC also marketed a Super Petrel model in 2011.

This aircraft should not be confused with another composite-built small flying boat with the same name, the SeaStar Aircraft SeaStar.
