Link & Fly Revolutionary Aircraft Concept
The Link & Fly concept aircraft from AKKA addresses operational challenges for passengers, aircraft, and infrastructure. This innovative technology will optimize aircraft turn-around times and airport infrastructures. This will reduce congestion in and around airports.
Link & Fly is revolutionary multimodal air transport system with a detachable cabin and wing-propulsion carrier, and verticalized airport and in-city infrastructure aspects. This single aisle, medium-haul aircraft optimizes rotation times from 50 minutes for similar sized aircrafts to approximately 20 minutes.
To validate the flight physics, AKKA has built a scale 1:13 turbine jet drone of the Link & Fly model. This is the minimum scale model required to adequately reproduce flying conditions and validate the flight physics of the full-sized aircraft.
