Concept for an Air Taxi

Basic Concept:

Small Aircraft VTOL, fully computer controlled, V-shape, no "wings".

Makes use of the CONADA Effect.

Electrically driven FANS. Electric, hybrid for now!

Concept A: underbody fans

Concept B: many small fans on the sides of the airframe

For both concepts: Forward - electric or jet
Air pressure system for Directional Control

Positions and size for Air Inlets for A and B fans are only indicated. Have to be positioned and sized during detail design for throughput air requirements.

Different "V" shaps have to be investigated to achieve the best compromise.

Movable flaps could be used at air discharges to use fans for forward flight.

Best for 3-seat or 4-seat Taxi. Larger models ...

Aviation Safety Industries' extensive research, development and engineering has developed an innovative and comprehensive 'Business Method Plan for Deicing Aircraft' for improved deicing efficiency.
The innovative element of the plan being:

1. The improvements in deicing efficiency are due to a specifically designed unilateral system for the method and practices of deicing aircraft for all cold climate airports of the United States. Specifically designed and engineered are three unimagined U.S. patented deicing apparatuses to facilitate our innovative perspective plan for an economical and expedient airports Fixed Base of Operation for aircraft ground deicing. This improved Method and Practices Plan by design, prioritizing passenger flight crew safety, by employing a state-of-the-art ice detection, operations communication and recording system, for ...

It’s sobering that passengers looking out over an aircraft wing might know more about what’s going on with the airflow than the pilots. It’s time to change that with APM.

The patented Airfoil Performance Monitor (APM) is the only technology that provides real-time information to pilots regarding the state of the airflow over the aircraft’s wings and tail. This information is critical for the prevention of stalls and Loss of control (LOC), particularly during airborne icing encounters. According to a 10-year National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) study, LOC was the leading cause of fatalities to large commercial jet and business jet aircraft, accounting for 4,717 lives lost and 44% of all U.S. business aircraft accidents during a ten-year period. ...

Airliner Economy Class Sleeper Seat

Long nonstop airline flights of 10 to 20 hours are not uncommon. As anybody who has done it can confirm, making these flights in economy class can be very unpleasant as well as dangerous (Thrombosis). As the hours drag on it becomes harder and harder to find any position of comfort. Sleep for many people is impossible. This idea suggests a possible way to best utilize the existing very limited volume available to each economy passenger. It is primarily aimed at providing a sleeping platform but also allows an escape from a fixed sitting position. For most passengers, the only change available during flight is tilting the seat back (and taking volume away from ...

Figure # 1

Normal Conditioning

When wing is moving against the wind, most of the air will hit the wing and make a sharp turn.

This is requiring great amount of energy. Airplane speed is reduced, and fuel consumption increased considerable.

Figure #2

Wing Cone Installed

When wing is moving against the wind, most of the air will not hit the wing directly and it flows smoothly upward. Airplane speed will increased and fuel consumption decreased considerable.

No ice will build up, even under icy conditioning.

Figure #3

Icy Conditioning

When wing is in icy Conditioning, air mixed with water drops hit the wing and water turns into ice on the leading edge of the wing.

The air without ...

This autonomous robotic rover mother-bus carries multiple flying exploratory scout drones to explore the surface of Mars. Driving autonomosly far from its Mars base station, the mostly ground based rover-bus can launch preprogrammed far flying scout drones. The rover-bus can ride on Mars’ surface or itself fly over hills, craters, and mountains. Any of the flying scout drones, as well as the rover-bus, may contain multiple cameras with visible, infrared, and / or ultraviolet active or passive image sensors that photograph the Martian surface and sky. Night vision, telescopic vision, and microscopic vision cameras are on the rover-bus. Spectrophotometers, radiation detectors, a magnetometer, ground drill, and atomic spectrometers are also onboard the rover-bus. A very wide area can be ...

An aircraft tire with airfoils, or an airfoil texture, molded into the sidewall. The idea being that when the tire is exposed to the air stream the airfoil feature would create a lift force that causes the tire to rotate. By creating this feature on a tire, retrofitting existing aircraft would only mean replacing the ...
Imagine a new airliner design that has slower, safer take off and approach speeds yet can fly at Mach .95 with little drag. Imagine an airliner that takes the engines away from the wings and places them out of the way of bird strikes at the tail of an advanced airfoil body. Imagine a plane that can carry twice the load yet get the same fuel economy as others with 1/2 this load. Now imagine your airfare actually going down.

Not possible? Actually, the design has been around since the early 60's jet age. Propeller designs go back even further. With today's improvements in engine design, materials and advanced airfoil design, this plane is entirely possible. It has even been ...

Supersonic flight over land is currently severely restricted because sonic booms created by shock waves disturb people on the ground and can damage property. Innovators at Armstrong Flight Research Center are working to solve this problem through a variety of innovative techniques that measure, characterize, and mitigate sonic booms. One of the most exciting advances involves the use of schlieren photography to capture images of shock waves emanating from aircraft in supersonic flight. In addition to studying shock waves for aircraft, NASA’s schlieren techniques have the potential to aid the understanding of a variety of flow phenomena and air density changes for several applications including: wing tip vortices, engine plumes, wind turbines, subsonic aircraft, rotorcraft, highway traffic, and volcanic ...

Kevlar is used to build bullet proof jacket and other stuff. Non newtonian fluid is which fluid is not obey newtons force principle. This fluid is different from reguler fluids.

When the impact force is apply on this type of fluid and the thickness of fluid {volume in 3d}is sufficient. When force is applied it behaves like solid body and absorbs some of force.

i here combine both {kevlar + non newtonian fluid } to make my project.

My bullet proof sheet is appears as see in picture attach below. In figure see one sheet is out from bigger cylinder. In bigger cylinder sheet is in shape of spiral when pull outside it make straight like sheet.
