Aerocar III


click on photo for more images

Designed by Moulton "Molt" Taylor, the Aerocar was certified for use both as an automobile and aircraft.  The prototype Aerocar I was completed in 1949 but not certified by the CAA until 1956.  Both Ling-Temco-Vought and Ford expressed interest but neither deal was completed.

It took about 15 minutes to transform from automobile to aircraft.  The Aerocar could either tow its wings and tail as a trailer or leave them at the airport.

Developed in the 1960s, the Aerocar III was an updated version of the Aerocar I.
