Arctic Tern aka EMSCO Arctic Tern 1932





Artic Tern (Again)

"In the late 1960’s, the Type Certificates and tooling were bought by the newly formed Arctic Aircraft Company. Arctic Aircraft transformed the S-1B1 into a bush plane by upgrading structural elements of the fuselage, landing gear, and wings. This new aircraft, designated the S-1B2, was reconfigured with a Lycoming O-320 160 HP engine and 82” McCauley propeller for increased performance. The Model S-1B2 was Type Certificated in 1975, and came to be known as the Arctic Tern. Arctic Aircraft produced the Arctic Tern from 1975 until 1985."
