Pagination or Media Count:
A study has been performed to determine the feasibility of developing a seaplane version of the Model XC-142A airplane. A STOL seaplane version and VTOL seaplane version of the Model XC-142A airplane, both fitted with inflatable vertical floats, were studied, and the feasibility of developing both of these airplanes was established. As a result of this feasibility study, it is recommended that further engineering work be done to establish the validity of the assumptions used in this study.
