Best Photos Sailing Aircraft Raises Its Wings To Offer a Luxury Sail On The Waves

As we still eagerly await for a flying car rescue from maddening traffic jams, designer Yelken Octuri has come up with a sailboat-convertible seaplane to at least sail us through a river or sea in utmost comfort. Dubbed the “Sailing aircraft,” the futuristic aircraft positions its wings horizontally (377 meters) in the plane mode and vertically (185 meters) in the sail mode. Commissioned by Captain Silvan Mariach, the futuristic aircraft can accommodate up to four passengers to land them comfortably on the sea waves for a luxury sail. Powered by Recchia & Husser engine, the Sailing aircraft integrates two propellers in its tail, while two lateral panels tip over horizontally to become two small pontoons. Presenting an open cockpit, thanks to the sliding canopy, the plane’s leeway becomes a rudder blade in the boat mode.
