According to the news source of the tourism sector, tourism news Center, the US-based company Quantum, which has started preparations for the 800-passenger progress eagle model, stated that this aircraft model, which is larger than all previous designs, will start a brand new era in air transportation by using solar energy.
Designed by Spanish designer Oscar Vinals, the Progress Eagle is larger than any other aircraft ever produced, and the company is expected to launch the hotel plane in two versions: a standard flight with a capacity of 800 passengers and a single flight model with a capacity of 300 passengers, which includes amenities such as restaurants, spas, cinemas, shops and casinos instead of cabins.
The plane, which will keep pace with the space age, is intended to be able to stay in the air almost continuously thanks to the solar energy it collects from the satellite, while the passengers are aimed to travel around the world and have experiences similar to sea travel. The airplane is designed with 3 classes of tickets: tourist, business and pilot. Passengers who buy pilot class tickets, which are not available in conventional airplanes, will be able to benefit from the panoramic viewing lounge and will also be able to travel with an unprecedented view from the glass area inside the aircraft.
This self-sufficient aircraft, which will utilize solar energy collected from the satellite, is expected to be more energy efficient and quieter than conventional aircraft. With a wingspan of 96 meters and a length of 80 meters, the Progress Eagle will be larger than any commercial aircraft today. The launch date of the aircraft, which will usher in a new era in air transportation, is not expected to be before 2030.
