FYI, But Off The Wall...No Flying Rv's

Just wanted to pass this on, yesterday the new Airbus A-380 landed at Dulles International Airport. The Aircraft came in and landed from the South and past by the Air and Space Museum. From Paris to Dulles in 8 hours and 8 mins.

If I won the Lottery, I'd seriously think about a flying RV, but maybe I'm a bit too old to learn to fly (particularly multi-engne sea) or get insurance.

My ideal would be a DH Twin Otter on amphibious floats with the interior converted into a Class A RV type layout. Floats would let you stay at marinas, since most airports don't have hook-ups. Amphibious capability would let you land at airports to get jet fuel.

It may not fly, but here's what to do with the extra million we all have sitting in the bank...

Cool Amphibious Manufacturers Ie
