Flylo Corp.

One of the more successful light air cushion vehicles, the Flylo 240 is an amphibious 2-seater powered by a 42HP 1600cc Volkswagen engine and capable of speeds in excess of 35 mph over land or water.  Lift is achieved by a flexible shaft which runs to the 35" aluminum axial fan.  Thrust is from a similar flexible shaft which drives a ducted 38" 2-bladed fully variable, reversible pitch propeller. The GRP moulded hull is of planning sidewall configuration.  Steel skids were fitted  to the base of each sidewall to prevent wear.  A retractable skirt, consisting of a flexible substructure of the bristle-membrane type, enabled the operator to convert the craft quickly from rigid sidewall to simple plenum mode for beaching and overland operation.
