Time has become one of the most defining parameters in today’s era of globalization. No doubt, passenger jets managed to cut down on transit times, but the end-users have always desired more. However, one of the latest technological breakthroughs that might significantly change air travel is ZEHST (Zero Emission Hypersonic Transportation), the plane designed by EADS, Airbus’s parent company. Designed to reach speeds of about 3,125 mph, almost four times the speed of sound, the ZEHST is practically the first hypersonic passenger jet with the only drawback that you have to wait little to long for it as it might take about 40 years before it finally comes into being.
Innovation, the thumb rule that has moved people on all fronts to invent fabulous designs that optimize performance and quality has not left the aerospace industry lagging behind. McGinnis, in CAFE Electric Aircraft Symposium in California, exhibited his new and unique aircraft design called Synergy. Synergy combines a whole lot of cutting edge aerospace concepts and ideas that make it highly efficient.
Inspired by the success of the Taurus G2 electric aircraft, Pipistrel, a well known Slovenian aircraft company, has now decided to add three new versions of the Panthera electric airplanes into their line of slightly weightless aircrafts.
Recently we all saw EADS (European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company) creating a buzz at the Paris Airshow by unveiling a new concept airliner called ZEST, acronym for Zero Emission Hypersonic Transport Airliner. However, it’s not only ZEST but EADS has unveiled another concept airliner at the Paris Airshow, VoltAir. It’s proposed as an all electric airliner for more immediate future than ZEST as it’s proposed to be functional in the next 25 years.
Do you frequently travel by air and always ask for a window seat? Well, ifflying in the clouds is what you like then hold your breath as Airbus has plans to leave you in a state of awe. They are out with a futuristicconcept, which will be a transparent plane. Yes! You read it right. It will have a see-through cabin to enjoy a picturesque view that will leave travelers enchanted. The concept was recently made public in London.
