Overview of the Flying Ships
The Flying Ship Company has taken proven Soviet-era Ekranoplan technology that harnesses the aerodynamic principal of Ground Effect to create advanced, unmanned maritime shipping vehicles that fly just over the water. These patent-pending Flying Ships will disrupt the global logistics industry with the combination of hybrid-electric propulsion and 21st century aerodynamics. Integrating these concepts dramatically decreases vehicle cost, improves fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions.
The Flying Ship Company is actively pursuing investment and partnerships to meet a surge in demand for shipping goods to time and price-sensitive coastal regions around the world. Unmanned Flying Ships will offer a new, high-speed and inexpensive option by providing access to more delivery points faster than boats and at a fraction of the cost of aircraft, disrupting the logistics market and opening new opportunities for development in underserved areas of the world.
The first generation of Flying Ships are around thirty feet long, electrically powered and remotely piloted, operating within maritime infrastructure. The unmanned vessels fly just over the surface and dock using existing marinas, beaches and boat ramps to efficiently deliver goods. Because they are classified as marine vessels, Flying Ships are not governed by federal airspace regulators, ensuring quicker entry to market and lower development and operating costs.
