The future is looking up, especially as new technologies are being brought to bear in aviation designs. The Lilium Jet is a prime example of how innovative ideas are changing the way flying machines are made, thanks to new technologies and miniaturization.
As a new form of air transportation, this elegant jet flying machine will vertically take-off and land using electricity, notably making it the first of its kind. This new type of travel is not slow going or limited to a short-range of operation. It reaches a top speed of 400 km/h and has a 500 km range, which are impressive specifications for any type of personal flying vehicle.
In the very near future, as the countdown until production begins, flying will be very easy because Lilium sports a steering control system that is completely computer-assisted, and it will only require a sport pilot license (LSA) to fly and will carry two persons with a total maximum payload of 200kg.
Potentially, this could be the advanced personal aircraft that could replace the automobile as the preferred means of transportation in the near future.
