Radio control aircraft have been using battery-powered electric motors for decades and so why not a full-size aircraft? Oh, right. The range. That’s not to mention the awfully long time required for recharging. Notwithstanding those shortfalls, many aerospace companies are developing battery-powered aircraft, albeit mostly – if not all – are all short-range transportation.
Even before eVTOL becomes a norm, an aerospace startup is already planning to introduce what it called “flying electric hypercar.” And the startup, called Urban eVTOL (UEV), is not started by just anyone; it is by VTOL and eVTOL inventor, Pete Bitar, who has more than 14 patents under his belt.
It has been several years since a new personal air transport called Blackfly by Opener was revealed. The good news is, it is still alive. Yay. The California-based aerospace outfit has recently carried out a human flight demonstration at the EAA AirVenture 2021 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
So far, the so-called “flying cars” are mostly glorified, oversized drones and hardly can be called “flying cars”. I mean. When we mention flying cars, we expect something out of Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element (1997, Buena Vista International), or at least something like Matt Trakker’s Thunderhawk from the cartoon series, M.A.S.K.
As per the headline, the Nevada-based aerospace company is shutting down. This comes as shock – specially since two aerospace biggies, Boeing and GE Aviation, were Aerion‘s partners.
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.
Words in the press are, the 45th President has lost his throne. Fret not if you are a loyal supporter with the riches because, besides the mess in America you have him to remember by, you can fly home a piece of the man himself. No. The Air Force One isn’t on sale, neither is …
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.
Every other people: buy TV bundle, white goods bundle. Very rich people: buy private jet and sports car bundle. The latter is exactly what Porsche and aircraft manufacturer Embraer is offering.
