Bensen Aircraft Corp - Igor Bensen's Flying Boat - DIY plans for standard boats.

AHOY, DOWN THERE! says Igor Bensen of Raleigh, North Carolina, inventor of the Flying Boat, shown here gracefully soaring above the boats of his friends at Cypress Gardens. A pair of air paddles mounted on top of a short mast, spinning like a Dutch windmill, provide the lift in this novel craft. Any standard boat can take to the air with this helicopter-like "Rotosail" flying attachment, says Bensen. Do-it-yourself fans can build their own Rotosails from the construction plans available from Bensen's firm for $20.
