Aerocar Mini-IMP

From PlaneSpottingWorld, for aviation fans everywhere

The Aerocar Mini-IMP is a light aircraft designed by Moulton Taylor and marketed for home-building. It is a scaled-down derivative of his original Aerocar IMP design. A two-seat version called the Bullet was also built. The Mini-IMP follows the same unconventional layout as its larger predecessor, with a center mounted engine, long driveshaft to a tail propeller, and inverted-V rudder/elevators.

Following Taylor's death, the plans and licensing for the Mini-IMP have been marketed by the Mini-IMP Aircraft Company of Weatherford, Texas.
