The Mini-IMP is a “second generation” version of the original, 2+2 place, Taylor IMP (an acronym for Independently Made Plane) homebuilt aircraft. This original version proved to be too complicated and too costly to build for the “average” homebuilder.
Design work began in 1973 for all-metal construction with a two-blade controllable-pitch prop aft of the negative-dihedral V-tail.
