“Collins Aerospace”, in cooperation with engineers from the University of Nottingham, was able to produce its new electric plane, which it described as a superhero, because it can carry 10 tons and stay for 5 continuous days in space.
The manufacturer said that the plane does not make any sound relatively. The maximum load capacity is 10 tons, and it can stay in the air for five days with a maximum range of 4 thousand nautical miles, or 4,603 miles (7,408 km) approximately. It can also fly at a height of up to 20,000 feet, according to the report Posted by American Business Insider.
The site pointed out that the Airlander 10 can be used in multiple applications, namely: defense and security, logistical support, fleeing travel, coast guard, regional water protection, and transportation to private sector clients. All of these uses can be achieved by changing interiors and accessories.
The site stressed that the plane does not need designated landing places such as airstrips or the like, unlike aircraft, yachts and helicopters, Airlander 10 can take off and land on land, ice and desert environments because it does not need the usual landing and takeoff infrastructure, which makes its operation cheaper.
