All-electric 300mi Range VTOL “Flying Car” Made Successful Maiden Flight

Ok. The Lilium Jet Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing Aircraft (VTOL) from Munich-based aviation company, Lilium Aviation, is not quite a flying car; rather, it is a full-fledged electric aircraft, or more specifically, an electric VTOL. Clearly, not the first (NASA was among the first, albeit in scaled form), but it is a baby step … Continue reading All-electric 300mi Range VTOL “Flying Car” Made Successful Maiden Flight

Unusual VTOL, Cormorant, Is What Future Helicopters May Look Like

Just when we thought mankind has reached the apex of aircraft design with respect to vertical takeoff aircraft like the helicopter, Israel firm Tactical Robotics came around and introduce a whole new concept of VTOL, or vertical takeoff and landing, vehicle. Formerly known as AirMule (which is exactly what it is designed to do, btw), … Continue reading Unusual VTOL, Cormorant, Is What Future Helicopters May Look Like

Aurora Wins DARPA VTOL X-Plane Experimental Plane Challenge

If there’s one aviation development that fascinates the military, it would be the ability to take-off vertically like helicopters do and travel at speeds like conventional aircraft. While this has been done, it was never wildly efficient. So, how do you make it even more ‘efficient’? Well, this is the challenge set out by DARPA, … Continue reading Aurora Wins DARPA VTOL X-Plane Experimental Plane Challenge

Krossblade Aerospace’s Skyprowler UAV is a Precursor to the Firm’s Future Personal VTOL Airplane

For the longest time in human history, mankind have been dreaming of flying cars. Even with today’s technology, flying cars are far from reality and one of the stumbling blocks is obviously landing and taking off. Up till today, flying car concepts all require runway or some sort of reasonably flat ground for taking off … Continue reading Krossblade Aerospace’s Skyprowler UAV is a Precursor to the Firm’s Future Personal VTOL Airplane

MBDA Spectre UAV Is Essentially A Flying Guided Missile Launcher

With the drones like General Atomics Predator and Reaper dominating the theaters of conflicts, it is easy to forget that are also more deadly UAVs out there. One of these deadly UAVs is the Spectre Combat UAV from European developer and manufacturer of missiles and missile delivery systems, MBDA. Unveiled at last year’s DVD exhibition … Continue reading MBDA Spectre UAV Is Essentially A Flying Guided Missile Launcher

Videos Of Russian’s “Flying Assault Rifle” Drone Proved That It Is Real

Well, what do you know? Apparently, the harbinger of death from up above, the quirky flying assault rifle drone proposed by Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey, has at least one functioning example. In a pair of videos posted a year ago, on March 28, 2018, it shows the Almaz-Antey’s “experimental prototype combat drones violator” in action.

Goodyear Dreams Of The Boldest Flying Car Concept Yet With Aero Tires

To be perfectly, we are kind of disappointed with the progress of flying cars. It seems like flying cars that so many companies claimed to be making are nothing more than an aircraft. Our concept of flying stemmed from Matt Trakker’s Thunderhawk. OK. Maybe not the gullwing doors that make it fly, but something along … Continue reading Goodyear Dreams Of The Boldest Flying Car Concept Yet With Aero Tires

JPA The Speeder Is Star Wars‘ Speeder Bike In Real Life Money Can Buy

Behold, fans of Star Wars, Speeder Bike is totally real! well, kind of. It has no wheels and it certainly need no mirrors to pretend it is hovering. Nor does it needed to be hosed up and only does over water runs. Plus, unlike the Imperial’s floating bike that hovers just a few feet off … Continue reading JPA The Speeder Is Star Wars‘ Speeder Bike In Real Life Money Can Buy

Boeing Autonomous Passenger Air Vehicle Made First Flight

Bell Helicopter is doing it. Airbus and Audi is doing it too and so is Rolls-Royce. We are talking about autonomous air vehicle, or air taxi. While those aerospace giants are working on it, Boeing has revealed that on January 22, 2019, it has made the first flight with its own take called Boeing Autonomous … Continue reading Boeing Autonomous Passenger Air Vehicle Made First Flight
