Aston Martin – another manufacturer of exclusive transport from the UK, presented its concept aircraft with a vertical takeoff. The concept is called Volante Vision Concept and its interior can accommodate three people. The timing of the presentation of the serial version is not reported, but, most likely, we are talking about long-term prospects.
The boss of the brand Andy Palmer noted that in the future this type of transport can be considered as a basis in the luxury segment, and it will also reduce congestion on the roads. The virtual instrument panel of the Volante Vision Concept will include the readings of instruments used in traditional aircraft: the pilot needs to monitor the course, altitude, airspeed and battery level.
A flying private taxi will be able to fly in an autonomous mode at a speed of 320 kilometers per hour, taking off and landing vertically. The device will be equipped with only 3 propellers: one will be placed behind and two in front.
Volante Vision is going to produce from the Carboniferous. Due to this it will be light and at the same time very durable. For flights over short distances Volante Vision enough only the electric traction. To fly far, he will use a hybrid engine.
How this will work in practice is incomprehensible, but the company assures that the concept was created by the best aviation experts and designers.
