Development of the one-place Inflatoplane since the completion of the prototype development program is reported. Tests were conducted on the prototype and ten improved, field evaluation models. Modifications in the evaluation aircraft gave greater strength, improved performance, and increased life and utility. Developments to date indicate the inflatable aircraft is well suited to applications where minimum storage space and weight, air droppability, rapid preparation for flight, excellent short field capability, good flight characteristics, and long range are required. Illustrations show the final aircraft configuration dimensions as well as the plane in its inflated and packaged form. A report of the H36-A engine test and operation is appended. Author
