Militi M.B.2 Leonardo
The Militi M.B.2 Leonardo is an Italian single-seat powered flying-boat glider version of Militi's M.B.1 flying-boat glider, designed and built by Bruno Militi.
The Leonardo is a parasol-wing monoplane with a two-step hull and a fuselage of aluminium alloy, wood and fibreglass. The mixed construction wing is supported by two N-struts in the centre and a vee-strut outboard on each side, it has plain ailerons but no flaps. The pilot has an open cockpit with a small windscreen. The 42 hp (31 kW) modified Panhard motor car engine is strut-mounted above the wing centre section and drives a two-bladed fixted-pitch laminated wood pusher propeller.
The aircraft was first flown on 21 June 1970 and was exhibited at the 1972 Turin Air Show.
