Transcend Air Corporation aims to transform transportation facilities by 2024 with their new aircraft.
It’s the age of hyperloops and high-speed connectors, and the future of travelling has further been cushioned with less hours and efficient services. The aerospace luminaries at Transcend Air Corporation have developed the Vy 400, which will revolutionise flying and make it a door-to-door activity, soon.
All about the Vy – An Air Taxi
The Corporation’s aircraft boasts of the vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) highlight and has six seats behind the cockpit. A balancing act between helicopters and planes, the aircraft seeks to eliminate the need for airports by providing an affordable service directly to and from major city centres.
The lightweight, carbon-fibre aircraft credits itself with a range of 450 miles, and features a tilt-wing, fly-by-wire design, which works at a speed three times faster than the usual helicopter.
Reducing the travel time between Los Angeles and San Francisco to under an hour, the Vy eyes for enhanced productivity and substantially low operating cost. With the development of VTOL air pads on major business centres across the globe, the aircraft envisions to transform travelling to a truly convenient experience.
Greg Bruell, Co-Founder and CEO of Transcend says, “This is a necessary and transformative addition to city-to-city transportation options. It solves multiple problems at once: we’ll take cars off congested roads, reduce pollution around airports, and lower the cost of air transportation while drastically reducing travel times.”
All potential passengers are requested to put on their seat belts as the airline will be ready for a vertical take-off from early 2024.
