The decoupling of the load (capsules) and carrying units (wings) allows for simplified fleet management and maintenance operations for airlines and is expected to improve the ground operations for airports.
Clip-Air also provides effective possibility of combining commercial freight and passengers on the same flight without any compromise in comfort.
The height is to allow for capsules to be hung from the belly of the aircraft, not unlike the way warplanes carry bombs and missiles.
The Clip-Air’s speed and range is expected to be on a par with that of modern mid-sized airliners, the beauty of the concept rests precisely upon the versatility provided by the capsules.
The capsules can also be easily attached and detached from the airframe, making it possible for aircraft to achieve very quick rotations on the ground.
The Clip-Air project’s main contribution would be to provide rail transport’s flexibility to air transport.
The flying wing can accommodate up to three capsules with a capacity of 150 passengers each.
Clip-Air also aims to address current environmental concerns due to use of fossil fuel in the aviation sector.
