Aerocar Imp (USA)
Currently under development, the Aerocar Imp is a single-engined homebuilt light aircraft embodying many design features of the Aerocar. Accommodation comprises two seats side-by-side and two rear folding seats. Latest
plans are for the installation of two 1,0 cc 74.5 kW (100 hp) motorcycle engines geared to drive a single propeller.
Aerocar Micro-Imp (USA)
Similar to the Mini-Imp but built primarily of glassfibre-reinforced paper. Construction of a prototype began in December 1978.
Aerocar Mini-Imp (USA)
Single-seat version of the Aerocar Imp. The basic all-metal structure is easily assembled and a folding wing facilitates construction in small areas. Plans and kits of parts for the Mini-Imp are available. By 1979 more than 100 amateur-built examples were under construction and several were flying. Recommended power plant is the turbocharged Revmaster 2100 D.
