Design of small-sized amphibian began designer George Pereira in 1970 year, at the same time during the development of the aircraft, the aircraft was not only a very attractive appearance, but also quite good flight performance, what they say rather large issue volumes.

Apart from the fact that the aircraft has the ability to carry off and landing on the water surface, it is also positioned the US and other developers as a sports aircraft, which mainly contributed to high rates of speed and good maneuverability.

The release of this aircraft was initiated at the end of the year 1973, moreover, the plane was manufactured in an already fully ready for operation of the aircraft, and as separate kits for self-assembly, which in turn provides a sufficiently attractive price for the direct consumers. According to 2009 years, it was built and sold, at least, 575 of aircraft Osprey Osprey 2 model, also referred to in some cases Pereira Osprey 2.

(maximum indicator), as well as freely cover distances at distances of up to 800 kilometers, which is quite acceptable. In addition, if necessary, the aircraft can be equipped with a more powerful power plant - the Lycoming O-360, with a capacity of 180 hp, which affects the increase in the flight performance of this aircraft, in particular, the speed.
