The objective of the task was to explore the potential usefulness of a small, single-seat seaplane for civil police patrol duties in Southeast Asia. Investigation of existing private and sport aircraft and subsequent flight evaluation testing of one such vehicle indicate that the Osprey 1, Navy designation X-28A, may afford a good baseline configuration which with certain refinements could provide a vehicle suitable for operational use.
