THE PARIS AERO SHOW
The French Exhibits
Rene Caudron. - Of the three machines exhibited by the Caudron firm, two are new types.
The P.V.200 is built under licence from M. P. de Vizcaya, and is of very unorthodox
conception. It is an amphibian twin-float monoplane, with the engine mounted in a very narrow streamline casing on top of the wing. The occupants sit side by side in a small cabin and probably get a very good view. The bottom of the fuselage is about level with the top of the floats, so that spray is apt to be considerable. The wheels retract into the bottom of the floats, which thereby lose the buoyancy of the middle (and therefore greater) portion.
