Archedyne Nauticair 450

This novel concept of an amphibian jet employs a patented wing design to allow it to land on water as well as conventional runways. The company expects that this aircraft will be powered by two Williams FJ44-2 engines to take the plane 1,800NM. The Nauticair is expected to carry one pilot and eight passengers. Unfortunately, due to some financial and legal difficulties, the prototype is at least three to four years away.
