Richard Branson’s space travel dream will take off this year and joining the fleet that will fly (very rich) folks to the realm of space is the new VSS Imagine, the first SpaceShip III spaceship.
What you see here is a render of supersonic unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) currently under development by Singapore-based aviation contractor, Kelley Aerospace.
Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft is not new. So is eVTOL with wings loaded with vertical lift rotors. But Cavorite X5 eVTOL from Canadian aerospace company is not the regular wings-with-vertical-lift rotors VTOL. It has a patents-pending wing system, a fan-in-wing design, that promised “highly efficient operational flight.”
What you see here is a private jet in development called Celera 500L from U.S. aerospace company, Otto Aviation. Are you thinking what I am thinking? Like, don’t this weird-looking, almost a blimp-like fuselage, defies the principles of aerodynamics? Apparently, it doesn’t.
With the rapid advancement in vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft, you know it is a matter of time that some is going to propose a VTOL business jet. The Pegasus Vertical Business Jet or VBJ by Johannesburg-based Pegasus Universal Aerospace (no relation to Marvel’s Project PEGASUS) is one such proposition.
This is KITE designed by Hong Kong-based Ponti Design Studio. No, it is not an actual kite, kite. The name was inspired by a migratory bird called black kite that stops by Hong Kong during winter.
4.5 billion passengers were carried by the world’s airlines which produced 915 million tonnes of CO2 in 2019. 915 million tonnes may be a large number, but in realty, it is just a drop of the ocean – or mere 2% – compared to all human-induced carbon dioxide emissions and just 12% of all transport-related …
We had this piece of news on our hands for more than week. We hesitated because, we are not sure if we could explain what it is in a nutshell. On one hand, we welcome the fact that someone is thinking outside the box in the area of electric vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) propulsion, …
Four years after Boom Technology revealed its plan to develop a new supersonic jet, the Colorado-based aviation company introduces its first demonstrator, XB-1. Billed as the first independently developed supersonic aircraft, the XB-1 demonstrates the key technologies that will enable safe, efficient and sustainable supersonic travel.
Remember the radical Flying-V passenger jet conceived by KLM and TU-Delft? Well, those guys are not joking around when they imagine that we should all be flying inside a wing, along with cargoes and the fuel. They have successfully taken it to the sky… with a scale model of the Flying-V.
