Dream: The Future of Aviation

 

A new year. And, perhaps, to any person to want to look at least a little in the future. Without resorting to fortune-tellers, palmistry, and all esoteric. Still, aviation areas related to technology and, therefore, can succumb to the forecasts of development, at least for the near future.

Although we do not Jules Verne, and HG Wells, finding new directions in the development of aviation in general, can be a little dream and dream.

A one-time drone, the size of a palm that has completed its task, no matter what, lands on ... the drainage grate of the hatch. It turns into a small puddle, and drains into the hatch. Fantasy you say? But a group of students from Brown and Stanford universities, together with NASA scientists do not think so. And last year, launched into the air UAV grown with the help of fungi and bacteria. The hull is grown from mushroom mycelium and covered with cellulose film, and protected by proteins that make the aspen nests waterproof. The case of such UAV is dissolved in water under certain conditions.

Future of Aviation

About ultralight aircraft smaller than the palm of your hand, you've probably already read. And this is not the limit of miniaturization. Flying dragonflies, beetles and smaller man-made flying creatures may soon fill the sky. This is another area of ​​aviation.

Elektrolety. They confidently make their way to the future. With the development of nanotechnology, there are all lighter and more powerful and miniaturized power sources. They allow all to stay in the air longer and use powerful electric motors.

Future Aviation 2

Facebook plans to use drones operating from solar panels as a Wi-Fi repeater. They fill the sky, and will cover 2 \ 3 the world's population with free internet access. Is not that fantastic? Now these UAVs - repeaters already are being tested. If the tests are successful - in 5 years, the world will not be without its web sites.

In the spring and summer kicks off a larger sibling Wi-Fi repeater. The project is called SOLAR IMPULS 2. This is the first ever fully electric airplane Solar. Not only is it going to make a round the world flight. Single plane, with four electric motors. And though he had a wingspan greater than that of the giant Boeing 747, it weighs less than a jeep, just 2300kg. After all, this is a plane with solar wings!

Future Aviation 34

At its military aviation trends. UAVs available in a separate structure and develops independently. But without human presence is here and can not do. In general aviation pilots refuse to take the time and tend upwards. In the air hovers the idea of ​​a ballistic rocket plane at speeds of more than 20000 km \ hour. Conventional winged cars have reached their ceiling. Over 40 km of modern aircraft Nobody can take the wings no longer hold. In their place come the rocket-space systems. But it will be a very different military aircraft.

Well, about the successes and failures of the development of space tourism in the reusable shuttles all have probably heard of. Close to the day when almost anyone can do self against the blackness of space. And although it is not quite aviation, they said, it will take off an aircraft.

Future Aviation 343

New technologies, new developments, emerging trends in the global aviation, allow us a little glimpse into the future.

Let us at least sometimes to dream.
