The flights are not a luxury, but accessibility for everyone

 

The Wright Brothers, after the successful test of the world's first airplane, which was held in December 1903, said that humanity faces an impossible task, making air transport not only popular, but also affordable for almost everyone. Despite the fact that more than a hundred years have passed since the first flight of an airplane, air transport remains inaccessible for most citizens of our country, and although aircraft manufacturers take all measures to ensure lower prices for the aircraft being designed, until that moment when the plane ceases to be a luxury, it is still quite far away.

 

 

Of course, hundreds of aircraft designers are involved in the creation of the aircraft, and the development process takes many years of painstaking work, so, to reduce the cost of aircraft and can not, however, if you drop dreams of comfortable flights, and, in fact, imbued with the idea of ​​fulfillment flights to a rather impressive distance, in fact, its own air means can acquire only for 10-12 thousand dollars.

It would seem that all of the above is fantastic and far from reality, however, do not forget about the great discoveries in the aircraft industry, and pay attention to such a variety of aircraft as a muscle. Comfort from the use of these aircraft, of course, is small, however, in the case of a well-developed physical body shape, it is quite possible to overcome distances of 100-150 kilometers.

 

 

What is a musculotte? In fact, the musculotte is an aircraft capable of moving in the air at the expense of the muscular strength of a person, that is, the operation of such an airplane does not require the presence of fuel, which allows us to recoup the aircraft for a fairly short period of time, and it is important to take into account the fact that for today day, the cheapest aircraft of this type is about 10 thousand dollars.

Compared with conventional aircraft, the muscovets have two main drawbacks - a low flight speed, usually not exceeding 35 km / h. and the required high endurance of the pilot, however, this can well pay off with unlimited flight range, low cost, the possibility of landing in a small area, high reliability, etc.

 

 

Experts do not rule out that while continuing to work in this direction, the main parameters of the muscles can be increased by 30-40%, which will allow flights to fly to an altitude of 200 kilometers, and move at an average speed of up to 50 km / h, which may well be compared to a number of inexpensive aircraft in terms of flight performance.
