Monterey.- From the combination of a Soviet ekranoplane and a flying ship, what is intended to be the largest air hotel in the world is born, which is inspired by the Titanic, revealed Forbes.
With an aeronautical industry that has increasingly smaller planes, the concept of Sky Cruise was born, something like the “sky cruise”, conceived as a flying hotel with almost infinite autonomy.
Sky Cruise, a concept that could be carried out in the future and which has been designed by the German-Yemeni scientist and filmmaker Hashem Al-Ghaili, can carry more than 5,000 passengers.
Thanks to its 20 nuclear-powered engines, the “Skytanic” or “Flytanic” (referring to the Titanic) does not need to land, but instead cruises endlessly above the cloud line, offering spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and the promise of the northern lights up close and more extraordinary than ever.
According to Forbes, passengers would be transported on conventional commercial airliners and private jets that dock at the Sky Hotel and drop them off via an external elevator.
Once aboard, they would enjoy luxurious living with a 360-degree observation deck in the tail and a huge concourse with shopping malls, state-of-the-art medical facilities and all the usual trappings of a cruise ship at sea in the main body of the ship. airplane.
On the tricky subject of turbulence, the Sky Hotel’s AI system promises to predict ahead and use noise-canceling-like technology to balance shock so passengers “slide over vibrations with ease.”
According to the creators, the concept is based on nuclear energy with a reactor on board that provides enough to power the total of 20 electric motors that it houses between the two wings.
With a few design tweaks, nuclear meltdown and the right aerodynamics, the Sky Cruise could one day take off and carry thousands of passengers above the clouds.
Although some point out that the cost of such a project is likely to be reflected in ticket prices.
