Infinite Possibilities of the US-2
Passenger Transport Amphibians
Thanks to its extremely short distance for takeoff and landing on water, the US-2 can function without a land runway if it is used as a passenger transport amphibian. This makes it possible to open air routes to remote islands in an environmentally friendly manner.
Passenger Services between Tokyo and Ogasawara(Chichijima)(plan)
Connecting a distance of approx. 1,000 km in about 150 minutes (one way)
Reducing travel time to approx. 1/10 (takes an entire day by ship)
Schematic View of Landing Facility
The US-2 requires minimal landing facilities for operation.
