REGENT has just unveiled their new all-electric vehicle, the Seaglider, which will fly along coastal routes operated by airlines, ferry companies, and governments. This aircraft combines the speed, comfort, and navigation systems into an ultra quiet design that offers the convenience, maneuverability, and affordability of a boat.
Dassault Aviation’s new Falcon 10X business jet boasts the largest cabin and most advanced technology yet. Passengers will be able to enjoy a high level of comfort and versatility, complete with a range of 7,500 nautical miles. This means it’s capable of flying nonstop from New York to Shanghai, Los Angeles to Sydney, Hong Kong to New York or Paris to Santiago at a top speed of up to Mach 0.925.
Unlike other VTOL aircraft, Jetoptera’s J-2000 utilizes a fluidic propulsion system (FPS), which can be best described as similar to the bladeless fans found in Dyson products. More specifically, fluid dynamics draws in a small flow of compressed air that is then used to intake a much larger flow of ambient air at incredible speeds. This fast-moving air is then sent back towards its wing-shaped surface around the ring, thus creating negative pressure for lift.
NFT Inc announced today that it is now accepting pre-orders for ASKA, the first electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle designed for consumers. Should you want to see one of these flying cars in person, visit their showroom in Los Altos, the heart of Silicon Valley. This four-seater can be driven on the road like a car, but is also capable of vertical takeoff / landing (VTOL), short takeoff / landing (STOL), and flying just like a standard aircraft.
While electric commercial / personal aircraft hasn’t been approved by the FAA, the Lilium 7-Seater Jet is well ahead of the game. Featuring a projected cruise speed of 175 mph at 10,000 feet and a range of 155+ miles, including reserves, it’s the result of five years of technology development across four generations of technology demonstrators. The company applied for concurrent type certification for a high-capacity aircraft with EASA as well as the FAA back in 2018 and so far received CRI-A01 certification basis from the former.
