Plane Driven PD-1 - American light multi-purpose aircraft, designed and manufactured aircraft companies «Plane Driven» and «Stoddart-Hamilton Aircraft» with 2010 years.

Working Plane Driven PD-1 of the aircraft was carried out by American aeronautical engineer based on the model of other aircraft, Glasair Sportsman 2 + 2While, the similarities between the two models exclusively external, as in their design and flight performance aircraft are radically different.

His first flight of the aircraft is made in July 2010 years, and the plane is quite unusual, as indicated by the fact that in fact, it is a hybrid model of car and aircraft, in particular, the wings mounted on an airplane can be dismantled, and itself the aircraft can be operated in a car, and, very effectively, which in turn allows for the movement even without lifting into the air.

Plane Plane Driven PD-1 originally supposed to start mass production, however, due to the fact that the model is satisfied, not all categories of consumers was taken a formal decision on the issue of aircraft of this model in small quantities, or, to order only, with the future owner I could select several parameters, in particular, color fuselage cabin furnishing, etc.

The cabin of the aircraft Plane Driven PD-1 designed only to accommodate three people, however, this is done primarily by security concerns related to the possibility of wing deformation under excessive load. However, at the rear of the cabin there is a fairly spacious luggage compartment, allowing the board to be placed on 300 kilogram payload (including its own pilot and passenger weight).

The power plant of the aircraft Plane Driven PD-1 consists of a piston aircraft engine Lycoming IO-390 210 power in hp, which allows to disperse the aircraft during a flight up to speed in 225 km \ h (cruising speed), at the same time, the aircraft can freely to overcome the distance to 900 kilometers. In addition, engineers from the aircraft company «Plane Driven» installed in the airplane, two additional engine Yamaha Phazer, each of which is capable of thrust to 80 hp - This power unit is used to move along the surface of the ground plane.

In addition to basic production version of the airplane Plane Driven PD-1, American aircraft manufacturers have developed and an additional variation of the aircraft Plane Driven PD-2, has more promising opportunities, and therefore, is more popular.
