The Anderson EA-1 Kingfisher is sold as plans for a home built twin place aircraft with a flying boat hull, capable of operating from land or water. The aircraft is heaver than an ultra light.

The hull of the aircraft is made from fiberglass covered mahogany plywood, with wings from the Piper Cub. The tail section is fabric covered metal.

Engines of different power than the 115 hp Lycoming have been tried for powering the Anderson Kingfisher, but none have proven as suitable a match for both performance and economy.

The designer of the aircraft is Earl Anderson, who formed Anderson Aircraft Corp. It is reported that over 600 aircraft plans have been sold throughout the world. Over 200 Anderson Kingfisher aircraft are said to have been built with twenty currently flying in the United States.
