This invention provides a new form of landing gear for a water plane that will minimize the time and power required to accelerate it from the at-rest, displacement-borne phase to the planing phase and takeoff phase of its operation. The landing gear of the invention is of hydrofoil type and separates the buoyant support function from the planing support function and recombines them in a way which causes them to interact, mutually assisting each other in all phases of operation, simultaneously providing a much lighter and stronger structure, having less d...
A waterplane with sustaining wings for air flight comprising: a waterplane body; at least one pair of air flight wings mounted on the body so that when the waterplane is at rest in water their roots are at least partly immersed, the said wings being at dihedral angle such that they are both wholly out of the water at a point from 25% to 90% of one semi-span from the respective root; a hydrofoil truss structure mounted on the body to extend below the body a vertical distance such that no other part of the waterplane can strike the water upon landing when ...
