Riassunto analitico
The Project to design the IDrovolante INnovativo TOScano (IDINTOS), a two-seater amphibious aircraft featuring a PrandtlPlane configuration was initiated in 2011. This project was led by the Civil and Industrial Engineering department (Aerospace Unit) of Pisa University and co-funded by the Regional Government of Tuscany.<br>The project was executed by Edi Progetti &amp; Sviluppo and completed in August 2013 with the construction of a full-scale prototype of IDINTOS.<br>The primary objective of this thesis was to establish an initial draft manual (Pilot’s Operating Handbook, POH) based on the IDINTOS research activities compliant with standard regulations for future use in certification applications.<br>This encompassed observing, actively participating and documenting the manufacturing and assembly end to end process during all phases of the IDINTOS project.<br>The thesis is divided in three parts.<br>The first part provides an overview of the main aviation regulations and the current legislative framework for sport and recreational aviation.<br>The second part illustrates the prototype construction and assembly through a series of pictures taken during the assembly process. Additionally it addresses the thought process for identifying the best features of the prototype and their integration into the final product.<br>The last part of the thesis is the initial draft of the POH for the IDINTOS prototype, prepared in accordance with standard requirements set forth in General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) Specification No.1.<br>
