The ALA DC 310 helps to save lives in sparsely populated areas, by being able to land very close to the patient. To achieve this it can land on any open area, river or lake near to the destination. The plane can takeoff and land very fast and the dimensions of the plane are kept very small. To seperate from the water, while starting, it uses hydrofoils that generate a strong lift. The doors are filled with a floating foam and can be extended to form a bridge to dry land. You can fold the wings back to avoid getting stuck on an obstacle, while landing on a shore. The plane uses a small efficient engine that can run on diesel and kerosene fuel.
