Small And Beautiful Private Plane AKOYA

LISA Airplanes has unveiled AKOYA, a small private plane that can land on water, snow, and land. When it arrives at its destination, the aircraft’s wings can be folded in an instant, enabling it to be stored in a garage. The project was developed by a small team in the heart of the French Alps. The specifications were more than ambitious: the aim was to create an ‘all-terrain’ aircraft that performs well and is aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, and easy to fly. One of the AKOYA’s many features is the use of ‘Seafoil,’ a patented technology developed by LISA Airplanes that enables the aircraft to take off from water. AKOYA also features retractable landing gear, fitted with wheels and skis, enabling the pilot to land on both snow and land.

Two-Seater Personal Seaplane by ICON

Seaplanes have been around for decades as a mode of transportation for people that live on islands, or for tourists sightseeing near places surrounded by water. But in recent years, they’ve been getting a lot more fun, thanks to companies like ICON, that have designed a personal seaplane, making them much more accessible to the average person. You can even store them in a garage and take them on road trips by towing the plane on a trailer. Once unloaded from the trailer, the wings fold out and lock into place, becoming the plane. Inside, there’s enough room for two people, with all the controls you expect to find in a regular plane. The plane can reach speeds of up to 109 miles per hour (176 km/h). Of course you need to be trained to fly seaplanes, and ICON has a training school for that.

Luxury Cruise Airship “Aether” Concept by Mac Byers

Based on an airship platform, the “Aether” cruise experience by UK-based designer Mac Byers allows guests to experience a wider range of destinations in a shorter time, all the while enjoying some of the greatest views imaginable. The exterior of the vehicle is conceived to look unlike any airship ever produced – removing notions of danger, like the hindenburg disaster in 1937 . The concept visually communicates a new generation airship that is not only safe but clean, influenced by the thunderbird 2, star wars and the NASA space shuttle. Drawing reference from suspension bridge cables, the lobby integrates structural cords for details like stairways and tables. The interior space has been designed to be as open as possible – encouraging social interaction and providing a communal gathering place for users to meet.

Electric Airplane “Panthera” by Pipstrel

The Pipistrel Panthera 4-seater aircraft has been unveiled at the Aero Expo in Freidrichshafen, Germany.This compact plane can zoom in the skies at 200 knots of speed, but consuming 41% less fuel as compared to anything within the competing league.

But it’s also available in an all-electric model, which can cover a distance of 400 km on a single charge and is supported by the state-of-the-art battery system for the environmentally conscious high-flyers. Besides a slick streamlined design, the inside of the Panthera includes generously sized touchscreen aviation instruments, front seats that look like they were lifted from a luxury sports car, and extra wide back seats for added passenger comfort. There’s also plenty of storage space for luggage.
