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.
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.
Remember Aerion Supersonic’s bold ambitious to create a the first supersonic private jet? Well, the Nevada-based aerospace company has announced a partnership with American aircraft maker, Boeing, to advance its cause. Oh, wait. Actually, it was Boeing whom made the announcement. As part of the agreement, Boeing will provide financial, engineering and industrial resources to […]
These days, anything that your hands can hold can comes in luxurious rose gold treatment. Wrist watches, smartphones, tablets – you name it – can all be coated with that shiny, opulent coating. This luxury coating can also be found on some cars and even yachts, which makes you wonder why not a private plane? […]
Technology has advanced leaps and bounds, but one thing mankind hasn’t progress quite as much is air travel’s speeds. The fact remains that, unless teleportation becomes a reality, air travel will remain the preferred and fastest mode of transport between cities and countries which still takes hours on ends. But could aircraft be made to […]
Forget about flying cars. They are not going to happen anytime soon. So, now your best bet would be splurging on a Bugatti that will get you from point A to point B faster, but at the mercy of the traffic, or get yourself a private jet that lets you travel farther in a significantly […]
From the product images, the Cirrus Vision SF50 Personal Jet sure looks kind of small, but in actual fact in can be configured to accommodate up to seven people, including the pilot (well, it’s more like five adults and two kids) and it could be yours sometime this year – if you have $2 million […]
A typical passenger jet travels at a subsonic speed of between 475 and 500 knots (around 546 and 575 mph), which should take you from London to New York in 6-7 hours. By hours, that’s pretty quick, but with respect to daytime, that’s half of your waking hours gone to waste. However, if Aerion Supersonic […]
Self-assembling Origami Robots Are What Nightmares Are Made Of scientists have successfully developed a flat-pack robot made of papers and plastic, mounted with batteries and motors, that folds itself together and move. using “shape memory polymers” that contract like muscles when heated, it took a while for the robot to take shape and walk, but […]
