This plane was designed by Airmotive Engineers of Mt.Clemens, Michigan in the early 70's.  Does anyone have

information on blueprints or construction plans that might be available?

Hello Joe,

I had tried to write Airmotive Engineers in the 80's and had the letter returned stamped "Return to Sender"  I wrote to the FAA database owner several times in the 90's at addresses I believed to be the owner, in addition to the address in the FAA database. Those too came back "Return to Sender".

The aircraft was certainly attractive when I saw it at Oshkosh . I took a number of photos of the EOS in early morning shots when I was at Oshkosh. The shapes were nice even with the cowl that had to cover the VW after the problems Hirth had with releasing a working engine.

I picked up a sheet from the EOS wing at that time stating plans were to be released. I had even filled out a card with my name and handed it to the person who had done the flyby flight. I assume that  sheet was just determining the actual interest and the aircraft never progressed from the working plans stage. I hope I'm wrong and plans are lurking out there. If someone has working drawings for the EOS please contact me too! I would like to get them scanned so there is some record of what was done at the very least.
