Posted 6 February 2018 · Add Comment

The Starling Jet now has now taken off to the sky taking vertical flight to greater heights.

The disruptive vertical take-off and landing business jet is a product of SAMAD Aerospace, which is a UK-based technology start-up with the dream to revolutionise the way humans and goods fly around the world.

To achieve that, a group of experts in their respective fields - be it Aerodynamics, Aircraft Design and Propulsion systems -  worked together and developed a range of products that will redefine air travelling experience.

The company said: “Imagine a transportation which is safer than a car, completely flexible, as eco-friendly as an electric vehicle, less time consuming than any plane or train and as luxurious as a private jet. This is the unique combination of features that will be offered by e-Starling and Starling-Jet in a door-to-door human air transportation, while UAV Starling will transport goods at an unprecedented pace; thus, completely changing perspectives about air travels. The Starling fleet are designed to give back their user’s most valuable asset - time - hence allowing them to achieve more than they would have ever dreamt of.”
