Developing the Volante flying car. This flying car design is a combination of a two-place, 150 m.p.h. aircraft and a useful, highway-speed car. It is a "take all parts with you on the road" flying car, consisting of a flight section which is removable from the car component, and which is transportable by the car in trailer fashion. At flight time, the flight section is easily and safely re-attached to the automobile. The designer was one of the primary designers of the Military OV-10.
Developing a tandem seat, composite, pusher with removable wings and retractable tricycle landing gear. It will be available in three versions. The V-100 is a kit aircraft being designed from the ground up to be Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) compliant. The V-105 is a non-LSA variant of the 100, with a retractable landing gear option and greater cruise performance. The 105 version is meant for the US Experimental category. The V-110 is the export version, intended to comply with the European 450 Kg rule.
