One of the main features of the flying hybrid is that it can be transported in a couple of times more freight than ordinary, plane over distances of thousands of kilometers. On his own duty Aeroscraft surpasses even the greatest transport aircraft. Aeroscraft system itself provided the take-off and landing in a vertical mode. The great achievement of the manufacturers of aircraft airship called the fact that he is very economical in terms of fuel consumption. To overcome the fixed distance it may need 2.5-3 times less fuel, if an ordinary military transporters.
All major experiments related to the operation Aeroscraft passed in California. Here in Tustin was "running" of the aircraft spices Aeros. Now the South American company headed by a man with Ukrainian roots Igor Pasternak. He also serves as the head engineer of the project Aeroscraft. Pasternak confirmed that the hybrid has passed all tests and showed himself worthy, and therefore can be run in the creation of very recently.
All the people who saw a particular role in the testing of aircraft airship, today announced that the proud role in such an innovative project.
If we talk frankly, all tests were conducted on hold of the aircraft at a height of several meters underground cash. The "flight" took place inside a special hangar in the criteria of total air of calm. As long as the same Pasternak is not ready to answer the question of how to behave Aeroscraft in normal conditions — in the presence of wind, cloudy, possible lightning.
From this, one can state that the words that plane-airship's time to enter into mass production, more like an obvious exaggeration. After all, the main tests in Aeroscraft just ahead.
But the fact that such a hybrid may be a niche in the development of air space — a fact. So the U.S. Defense Department, along with NASA contributed to development of the project about $ 35 million prospect of transporting multi-ton cargo does the job, and work intensively lasts.
If the read of the technical properties of the model, it can be noted that a new type of airship made of special fibers made on the basis of carbon. The design used aluminum. Project length — 70 m, but there are versions that since the airship can extend nearly 2-fold. Specifically, the extended model will be capable of transporting a descent of about 66 tons of cargo.
Company Aeros, if project will be implemented with the greatest success, can enter into the history of the conquest of the air space. The introduction of such hybrids, of course, can become virtually ubiquitous. It is reported that Aeroscraft ready to buy not only the military, and representatives of oil companies, construction companies and telecom business.
