The Aerocar’s cabin roof glazing gave excellent upward vision for the pilot.
The one and only Portsmouth Aerocar, G-AGTG, was a six-seater built by Portsmouth Aviation at Portsmouth in 1947. It was powered by two 155 h.p. Cirrus Major IIIs and cruised at 153 m.p.h. Plans to put the Aerocar into production were abandoned, and the prototype was scrapped in 1950.
The high wing configuration of the Portsmouth Aerocar gave the pilot and passengers an excellent field of view.
The one-off Portsmouth Aerocar Major six-seater twin first took to the skies in June 1947.
The Aerocar snapped during its maiden flight, on June 18, 1947. Note the Focke-Wulf Fw 189 parked out between the Portsmouth hangars.
