1 Aeroscraft ML866 New Paradigm in Air Transport on Mon Sep 13, 2010 9:38 pm
ML866 is a new type of aircraft which is one step closer to take-off because the United States FAA has accepted the type of certification application for the Aeros ML866. With its 64 meter long and 36 meter wide, this aircraft has top speed of 138 mph with range more than 3000 miles, it boasts some unique properties for a craft of its size including the ability to hover, take-off and land vertically, complete autonomy from airports, not to mention incredible aerial views.
The mammoth 5000ft square cabin area also opens up a range of possible applications for the aircraft, from cargo transport and mining to use as a luxurious private sky yacht or a fully functional conference center.
“The Aeroscraft will be type certified as a new type of aircraft. This is a monumental step forward in the aerospace industry. It is a new dimension of flight – an aircraft that utilizes adjustable buoyant and dynamic lift, creating unique capabilities beyond what is available from any other air platform today,” said Aeros president and CEO Igor Pasternak. “This is a significant milestone in an overall Aeroscraft development program. I am absolutely confident in the project’s successful completion.”
