Finnair A600–850 M
This is a wide-bodied, zero-emission supersonic aircraft, designed for long-haul routes. The fuselage is constructed of super-light and -strong nanoceramic material, which also withstands the heat caused by air friction very well. The aircraft’s intelligent, partly elastic wings take into account flight speed and weather conditions, thus saving energy and reducing aircraft noise. Passenger comfort is top class.
The aircraft is partly on two levels: entertainment and wellness services are situated under the cabin. In these areas the windows are replaced with AV windows, offering zoomable views of the sky or downwards to earth.
The cabin has intelligent seats, which adjust to the passenger’s weight, height and age. The seats assist passengers when they wish to stand up, and while in the seat, passengers can have their pulse, blood pressure and body temperature measured or enjoy a light massage and heat treatment. The seats are equipped with internet and satellite links, and the backrest of each seat has a 20-inch 3D display. Passengers can set a sound-insulated space between their own and neighbouring seats so that their speech cannot be heard by others.
The electricity needed is generated by solar panels on the aircraft’s surface. All materials are 100 per cent recyclable.
A zero-emission aircraft, designed for shorthaul routes – takes off along a runway or vertically. The electricity needed in the vessel is generated by solar panels on the vessel’s outer surface. All materials are 100 per cent recyclable.
Under the aircraft are four large, turning engines and behind four smaller engines. The engines under the aircraft can be turned horizontally by 26 degrees and vertically by 55 degrees. The turning stabilises control at lower flight speeds. In vertical take-off, the engines are turned into a vertical orientation and the four smaller engines push out from the aircraft’s rear section.
Approximately half of the vessel’s 600 to 850 passenger places are in one- to four-person cabins, which have internet and satellite links. The cabins have either real windows or are equipped with audio-visual windows that offer views of the surrounding sky or downwards to the ground. The AV windows also act as display terminals and receivers, on which passengers can watch television transmissions or even follow shows held in the vessel’s restaurant.
Finnair A1700-2400 Cruiser
A charter aircraft with turning engines located in front – designed for both gliding and vertical take-off. In an emergency, the aircraft can land on water.
All of the vessel’s 1,700 to 2,400 passenger places are in one- to four-person cabins, which have their own toilet and shower as well as internet and satellite links. Some cabins have windows. All cabins also have AV windows, offering zoomable views of the sky or downwards to earth. The AV windows also act as display terminals and receivers, on which passengers can watch television
transmissions or even follow shows held in the vessel’s restaurant.
The vessel also has, among other things, hologram theatres, restaurants, bars, shops, meeting rooms, a beauty parlour, a first-aid station, gymnasiums and a quiet room.
An aircraft for everyone
An efficient combination of a helicopter and a small aircraft. The first versions of the aircraft will be introduced in the 2020s. Due to its low manufacturing and running costs as well as its reliability, the aircraft’s basic structure and design will remain almost unaltered for decades.
Some 85 per cent of the aircraft’s outer surface is covered with electricity-generating solar cells. The full-spectrum cells are elastic, thin film and their efficiency coefficient is up to 92 per cent. The fuselage is made of new-generation carbon fibre.
A computer adjusts the rotor blades to an optimum length to correspond, for example, with the requirements of load, take-off and landing speed, or slow flying. In horizontal flight, to minimise air resistance the blades are at their shortest and stationary.
Space hotel's service ship
Service ships carry passengers directly to the space hotel. Th ships are designed to operate at high speed at all levels of the atmosphere. Their shape is based on an arrow-like overall appearance with aerodynamic, soft curves. This minimises air resistance and heating of the fuselage. The ships have no special comforts, and no food or drinks are served.
The space hotel is positioned at an altitude of approximately 500 kilometres, in an orbit that takes the hotel around the Earth every nine hours. The average stay by tourists at the hotel is four days. During this time they orbit the Earth ten times in a state of weightlessness.
The space hotel’s facilities include restaurants, various recreational areas, an auditorium, a health station and greenhouses. There are 450 beds available for tourist use. From the window of a double cabin, guests can admire the surrounding space and, via a display screen, can view details of the Earth’s surface. Space Hotel is a popular honeymoon destination.
