An Investigation on the Takeoff Performance of a Light Amphibious Airplane

The findings of a performance evaluation of a light amphibious aircraft during takeoff from the water’s surface are presented in this article. The plane is part of a bi-winged light amphibious aeroplane series developed in Thailand. A short takeoff and landing (STOL) amphibious aircraft is the goal of the concept design. A mathematical model that collaborates with several complex components is demonstrated and solved using MATLAB@. The aircraft’s water-drag resistance is estimated using NASA technical data for standard seaplane hulls, which increases the model’s accuracy during takeoff. The seaplane can take off from calm water in 26 seconds at 54 KCAS and a distance of around 890 feet with an AOA of 10 degrees, according to the simulation.
