MVP.Aero Inc Model 3
Designed by Mike Van Staagen, the MVP Model 3 is a prototype American "triphibian" light-sport aircraft, displayed in mockup form in 2014. The aircraft is under development by MVP.Aero Inc. of Delaware.
The MVP Model 3 is designed to operate on land, water, snow and ice. The floor panels can be rearranged to accommodate fishing or camping. The design will be marketed in several versions, including the E-AB, E-LSA, and S-LSA. The aircraft is a two-seats in side-by-side configuration with a pusher propeller and folding wings, which are constructed with carbon-fiber composite spars and covered with fabric. The balance of the airframe is constructed from a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass. Electric thrusters help the aircraft manoeuvre in the water.
The design allows the canopy to be raised on a four bar system to sit above the engine cowling. This leaves the cockpit area open for fishing from and can also allow mounting of a tent for camping, with the floor panels inserted. With the canopy fully open the engine can still be run for water maneuvering.
The unit cost was US $169,000 as an Experimental and $189,000 as S-LSA.
