Los Angeles (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
The final configuration and vehicle systems integration functionality testing has been completed as the Aeroscraft sub-scale demonstration vehicle reaches the finish line.
Aeroscraft proof-of-design prototype is the world's first rigid variable buoyancy air vehicle. It was developed by Aeros for over sized and heavy cargo/freight transportation from point of origin to point of need.
The air vehicle is capable of controlling lift in each stage of flight, from take-off to landing. Unlike airships or hybrid airships, the Aeroscraft unloads on-board cargo without re-ballasting or ground infrastructure; and unlike cargo airplanes, it does not need airports for takeoff and landing, or ground equipment for loading and unloading freight.
As the tests concluded, Aeros CEO Igor Pasternak noted, “The vehicle construction is complete and this is truly the beginning of a vertical global transportation solution for perhaps the next 100 years.”
