The Fleetwings Sea Bird was an amphibious utility aircraft designed in 1934-5 by James C. Reddig for Fleetwings, Inc., Bristol, PA. While the aircraft's basic configuration had a precedent in the design of the Loening "Monoduck" developed by the Grover Loening Aircraft Company as a personal aircraft for Mr. Loening (for whom Reddig worked from 1929-1933), the Sea Bird was unusual because of its construction from spot-welded stainless steel.
