aquas is a flying ship moving passengers with speed up to 200 km/h

RDC aqualines announced its future plan to move the design and manufacture of its aquas ekranoplan to the basque country, spain. the project will serve as a marine ground-effect-craft for high-speed passenger and cargo transportation. the vessel is supposed to be 100% electric and hydrogen hybrid, resembling a seaplane that is literally able to float over the water’s surface.aquas is a flying ship moving passengers with speed up to 200 km/hall images courtesy of RDC aqualines

 

 

this vehicle developed by RDC aqualines can reach high speeds due to the ground effect, an aerodynamic phenomenon that shows effect during a flight at very low altitudes. the air compression produced among the ground and ekranoplan’s wing increases its lift and enables it to float above the water at speeds up to 200 km/h. these kinds of seaplanes will be mainly used for passenger transport, but could also improve search and rescue operations at sea.aquas is a flying ship moving passengers with speed up to 200 km/h

 

 

‘aquas ‘ is planned to carry twelve persons and two crew capacity, while its advanced safety, comfort, and seakeeping performance will provide the people with a unique experience. the concept of the multipurpose marine wig craft took its cue from the new needs and demands of potential operators all over the world. ‘we develop advanced ground effect vehicle designs for water transportation that can revolutionize the marine passenger market. we are at the edge of aviation and ship-building industries as we are building a flying ship.’ announced the company in a post.aquas is a flying ship moving passengers with speed up to 200 km/h

 

 

according to the RDC aqualines, the first ‘aquas’ vessels will be available for high-speed travels in 2024.aquas is a flying ship moving passengers with speed up to 200 km/h
