Air-Elf aircraft concept is to solve road congestion. The core of the concept is a new type of wing, “Air Caterpillar”. It can be transformed in order to meet the needs of flexibility and speed of the aircraft. Air-Elf aircraft not only can take off and land vertically, but also is able to perform high-speed cruising. In addition, Air-Elf is equipped with smooth aerodynamic appearance, clean and efficient hydrogen energy power system, solid frame, to facilitate safe and comfortable cockpit and baggage compartment.
“Air Caterpillar” wings consist of a main structure and many small wings. These small wings can move horizontally and circularly to provide lifting force constantly. “Air caterpillar” wings are highly transformable to meet the parking, vertical takeoff and landing, high-speed cruising requirements.
