Batson Air Yacht

 

 Batson-Airyacht

 

Matthew A. Batson built the Air Yacht during 1912 and 1913 with the intention of flying it on a transantic flight from Georgia to Liverpool, England. The airframe consisted of six forty-foot wings and a gondola type cabin, fixed with struts and braces to a seventy-foot pontoon. Powered by three 120 hp Emerson six cylinder engines, the craft was sucessfully launched but reportedly never achieved sustained flight.
