Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Moynet 360 Jupiter was a small executive transport built in France in the 1960s. It had an unusual twin push-pull configuration, single fuselage configuration. Two prototypes were produced, the second with more power and seating, but no sales resulted. Some civil propeller driven aircraft that have used one or more pairs of engines in push-pull configuration have been flying boats, with engines mounted above the wing and clear of spray. Others have had a pair of engines, one at either end of a pod fuselage with a tail unit mounted on a pair of booms, for example the Cessna Skymaster, the Adam A500 or the Rutan Voyager. The Moynet 360 Jupiter was an example of a push-pull aircraft of a less common configuration, where a single conventional fuselage has an engine at either end; the Dornier Do 335 fighter used the same arrangement. For light civil aircraft, the aim was to combine the performance of a conventional twin-engined aircraft with the ease of handling of a single-engined one.
