Worlds ONLY flying 1956 Moult Taylor Aerocar

Auburn, CA – Eric Sweeney, co-owner of Auburn Airplane works, talked to me about the 1956 Moult Taylor designed Aerocar. There were only 4-5 Aerocars built. This is the only Aerocar that is flying.

Sweeney’s father, Ed, owns the plane/car and they are restoring it. The Aerocar has been in the family for twenty years.

Eric is in Grass Valley, CA today showing the plane at an air show. He will be at the Salinas, CA airshow and the Reno, NV air races on Labor day.
