I heard about the guy in the pontoon boat setting a great loop speed record, but what about flying the great loop?
I know some of you gents are prop jockeys, the thought occurred to me that it might be fun to fly the loop, stopping where you want.
And then I saw this:
Explore the A5 - ICON Aircraft
Sure, it's not done yet, but when it is, assuming it flies as easily as it should being a high wing pusher amphibious airplane, that would be quite fun. I don't know the regs on landing on water (been too many years since flight school) but if you could land and go sight seeing, you could blast past the parts that didn't interest you and concentrate on those that did.
As long as it does not interfere with boat traffic, can an amphibious aircraft land and take-off on any water?
