A German start-up company is developing the world’s first ultralight personal electric plane that can be powered from a wall socket, take off and land vertically even from back gardens, and is eco-friendly.
Sounds like a tall order? Not Really.
The two-seater entirelyelectric plane uses a ducted fan which makes it much simpler, quieter and safer than conventional helicopters. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
“Our goal is to develop an aircraft for use in everyday life. We are going for a plane that does not need the complex and expensive infrastructure of an airport,” said Daniel Wiegand, CEO of Lilium.
“To reduce noise and pollution, we are using electric engines so the plane can also be used close to urban areas,” said Daniel, one of the four Munich University graduates who founded the company. Highly efficient in its cruising mode, the plane will have a range of 500 kilometres and be on sale by 2018. It features a touchscreen and flyby-wire joystick controls, retractable landing gear, wing doors, large storage, panoramic windows, and a battery that can be recharged from any wall socket.
The retail cost will be far less than that of similar-sized contemporary aircraft, with running costs much lower as well.
“In the longer term, our target is to build an aircraft that not only the super-rich can afford, and that can make private air transportation possible for a much wider number of people,” Daniel said. “With the concept of taking off and landing almost everywhere, we could see that one day our plane will be used for quick and daily transportation almost like a car,” he said.
