BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - A Minnesota-based aircraft development company has chosen Maine’s Brunswick Landing as the site where it will develop a new amphibious aircraft.

The Lewiston Sun Journal reports (bit.ly/1VgF7ex) that the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority announced the lease with MVP Aero on Friday. The MRRA is in charge of redevelopment at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station.

MVP company officials say the new aircraft’s wings will be able to be folded, allowing it to access marinas, boathouses and other tight quarters. The aircraft’s design will also allow it to be trailered and stored off site.

MRRA executive director Steve Levesque said Brunswick Landing’s large runways and hangar space make it very attractive to the aviation industry.
