Some 50 miles outside London, roughly in between Cambridge and Oxford, lies a decent-sized town called Milton Keynes. A couple of miles outside Milton Keynes sits Cranfield Airport, originally built in World War 2. It's got a couple of runways, one that's big enough to land a 757-sized airliner on, but since it doesn't have the kind of terminals to process that volume of people, it's chiefly used for business and private flights and the odd bit of R&D.
September , 2020 - SAMAD aerospace, the British hybrid electric VTOL aviation company is pleased to launch its concept for Q-Starling, a high-end Personal Air Vehicle (PAV).
SAMAD aerospace, a British hybrid electric VTOL aviation company that calls Cranfield Technology Park home, announced the launch of their Q-Starling concept on Monday. The Q-Starling concept is an addition to the luxury personal aerial vehicle (PAV) category of aircraft within the aerial mobility industry.
Samad Aerospace has shared more about its plans for a two-seat, hybrid-electric personal VTOL aircraft, which it is calling the Q-Starling.
SAMAD aerospace has revealed its vision for the first eVTOL aviation innovation village in the world.
As a response to great market demand Samad Aerospace proposes flying point-to-point from origin to destination in an environment friendly, comfortable and fast medium-range electric VTOL aircraft without the need of airport.Samad Aerospace has pioneered its ambitious and futuristic project to develop the first vertical take-off and landing passenger aircraft powered by electricity. When this product is launched to the market, it will solve some of the most challenging problems of aviation
UK-based start up Samad Aerospace on Tuesday introduced at the Singapore Airshow 2018 its eStarling and Starling Jet concepts for a vertical-takeoff-and-landing (VTOL) business aircraft, unveiled a 1:10 scale model of the identically shaped aircraft, and announced an ambitious development schedule. Designed for intra-city travel, the electrically powered eStarling has a projected range of 348 nm and a top speed of 261 knots, while the electric hybrid Starling Jet’s anticipated range and top speed are 1,303 nm and 400 knots, respectively. Diesel fuel and/or batteries will power four thrust-vectoring electric fans, while a fifth, tail-mounted engine will provide only forward thrust and charge the aircraft’s batteries. Current off-the-shelf technology is adequate to meet the aircraft’s performance targets, said CEO Seyed Mohseni.
Samad Aerospace present Q-Starling, a clever mix of fighter jet and VTOL and the electric Starling Jet. Starling Jet was first announced at the Singapore Air Show in February 2018 and has already generated substantial press, industry and market interests.
Can flying directly from point-to-point become as common as driving? If the team at SAMAD Aerospace has their way, the answer is yes, as Urban Air Mobility becomes more prevalent. And the Q-Starling can be flown by pilots with a modified Private Pilot License (PPL) qualification
