Here is "Sky Yacht", and aviation becomes totally sustainable

From Lazzarini Design the concept of a "flying yacht", also functioning on water, supported by two 150-metre-long airships loaded with helium

While traditional aviation does not yet allow fully electric mobility on long-distance journeys, a look at the past could suggest a way to navigate the sky in the future without harmful emissions and in an almost totally sustainable way…
The study has responded to this suggestion Lazzarini design, with offices in Roma in Italy and Dubai negli United Arab Emirates, who launched the project “Sky Yachts“, a concept of “flying yacht” without production of pollutants, supported by two airships filled with helium reminiscent of Zeppelin that crossed the skies ofEurope and not only in first decades of the twentieth century.

An autonomy of forty-eight hours at a speed of 111 km/h

The concept consists of two airships long 150 meters, connected through four decks to a central hull 80 meters long.
On board the aircraft, a total of 22 guests can be welcomed into 11 cabin, including five bays for each side, and a main suite in the central area intended for the owner, which also allows a view of the land panorama and that of the sky above 360%: the main area also incorporates a large hall, used as a dining and dining area.
The two balloons of the “Sky Yachts” are divided into beehive tanks that store up to 400.000 cubic meters of compressed helium gas.
When fully stocked, the yacht of the sky can fly for more than 48 hours at a speed of 60 nodes (69 miles per hour, 111 km per hour) and proceed smoothly through the water at a speed of five knots (5,7 miles per hour, 9,2 km per hour).
The top of the huge airship is also equipped with solar panels, which help supply electricity to the electric rotors.

Pierpaolo Lazzarini: “425.000 cubic meters of 'He' on each side…”

“Our goal is to have 425.000 cubic meters of helium volume on each side of the 'Sky Yacht', 850.000 in total, to be able to lift various habitable structures and not just the airship”, lets know Pier Paolo Lazzarini.
The latter, class 1982, Capitoline DOC, is an Italian designer with the ability to artistic visualization and prototyping. He has spent years working in the automotive field, and is a designer who believes in a different design approach, described in his motto: “Always think about the future, never forget the past…”.

Hypothesis: hydrogen mixture to make balloons smaller?

Therefore, “We are also studying the possibilities of a hydrogen mixture to partially reduce the amount of helium needed for navigation and consequently decrease the diameter of the airships, but already the original setting of two twin balloons gives us an incredible advantage in terms of volume. We are talking about a result never achieved before in the history of aeronautics”, they let the study center know Lazzarini design, where the quasi-neologism of was coined "catamaran airship".
Inside the two large aircraft of the “Sky Yacht” additional tanks (notably four per side) are also available from compressed helium.
The chemical elementHe” can be released depending on the need for elevation or floating on the water.

And in the bis version an "overall length" of 169 metres

Il airship or airship it is by definition any aerostat whose direction can be controlled by means of aerodynamic or propulsive commands: the first was built in 1852.
Conceived to be entirely built and furnished with structures in dry carbon fiber, the "Sky Yacht” extends the two airships for a “overall length” (Length overall or LOA), you come on 150 meters of the basic version can get to 169 in the model V2.
As already mentioned, each floating structure is divided into several beehive-like areas (or cells), in order to ensure the hermetic isolation of each compartment (watertight, precisely) occupied by helium, even in the event of an emergency or damage.

Automated driving and shared mobility are worth 25 billion

Carbon fiber joints for stiffness on the ground and in the air

The two airships are connected by carbon fiber joints on each side, which keep the entire body/structure quite rigid in flight and which allows the aircraft to land with great stability, connecting the main central structure to the two "floating" airships.
These latter structures incorporate an inflatable base in the lower part capable of enveloping the “Sky Yacht” as it comes into contact with the surface of the water.
It is not an aircraft for public transport or for tourist purposes, but a tool designed for private individuals who have their own vision of the use of "mega yachts” of the sky and who believe they can personally contribute to the evolution of aeronautics.

Sailing on the sea or on a lake at an estimated speed of 5 knots

The particularity of the "Sky Yachts” however is the possibility of landing both on land than in water.
The underside of airships on the side of the hull is designed to be inflatable: the principle is the same as lifeboats on boats, but the “blimps” are also filled with helium, which can be released during take-off from the surface of the sea, a lake or a large river (this solution will create a sort of depressurization on the surface of the water, helping the detachment of the liquid-surfaced aircraft).
Being pushed down by the rotation of each motor, the “Sky Yachts” can remain in the water through a helium depressurization and ballast anchoring system, as well as navigate smoothly on the liquid surface using the same thrusters with an estimated speed of about 5 knots.

A good-scale prototype that will work by the end of… 2022

At the moment, it "Sky Yachts” is just a concept useful to embrace an alternative idea of ​​flying and sustainable transport in the futurebut you must never say never.
“We can tell you that various aspects of the 'Sky Yacht' are in the study and engineering phase, and we expect to be able to lift a first small-scale prototype of the airship into the sky already by the end of this 2022…”he concluded Pier Paolo Lazzarini.
