Stinson manufactured and sold the SR Reliant for much less than comparable aircraft of its day. Additionally, it could carry four adults instead of one pair, as we common at the time. This example is fitted with floats for waterborne operation as well as a distinctive orange and black livery — it can be seen today at the Museum of Flight.
