The Flying Ship Company has taken proven Soviet-era Ekranoplan technology that harnesses the aerodynamic principal of Ground Effect to create advanced, unmanned maritime shipping vehicles that fly just over the water.
These patent-pending Flying Ships will disrupt the global logistics industry with the combination of hybrid-electric propulsion and 21st century aerodynamics. Integrating these concepts dramatically decreases vehicle cost, improves fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions.
The first generation of Flying Ships will be around fifty feet long and will operate within maritime infrastructure. The unmanned vehicles will fly just over the surface and will dock using existing marinas, beaches and boat ramps to efficiently deliver goods.
Because they will be classified as a marine vessel, these Flying Ships will not be governed by federal airspace regulators which means they will be quick to market with lower development and operating costs.via/read more: flyingship
