A NEW plane for superyacht billionaires has been revealed.
This is an ultralight aircraft that can take off and land on the deck of a large ship and is intended to replace the jet ski as a toy for the super-rich.
Klissarov Design is behind the concept and revealed designs for the $160,000 aircraft.
It’s called Acro and was designed specifically for use at sea.
Although it is only in the concept phase, the plane’s developers expect it to be a hit.
It has several features that might be of interest to superyacht owners, including the ability to take off and land vertically.
The lightweight and compact design makes it ideal for taking on a ship.
It could be used to transport passengers to the coast or simply take them on a ride across the ocean.
No helipad is required as the aircraft can land safely on the regular deck of a ship.
The aircraft is designed to fly at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.
Users are assisted by an AI co-pilot to make flying easier.
The small aircraft should be clean and quiet.
Since it is electric, it must have a charging port to keep it fully charged and ready to use.
Other features include full 360 degree thrust capabilities.
The craft is also touted as acrobatic by its creators.
That means the super-rich could use it to fly loops and perform tricks over their superyachts.
Accordingly Robb reportthe demand for such devices is there.
