Fulton Airphibian FA-3-101 Logo

Logo of a plane called Airphibian. The plane is painted red and the logo is painted tan.

Designed by Robert Fulton Jr. in 1950, the Airphibian became the first roadable aircraft approved by the Civil Aviation Administration. A pilot could fly to an airport and then, after disengaging wings, tail, and propeller, and drive the car into town.”. While a technical success as a flying car, the Airphibian did not become a marketable design due to the inherent compromises of air and car technologies and financial difficulties. Highlighted in this image is the logo of the Fulton Airphibian FA-3-101.
