Can flying directly from point-to-point become as common as driving? If the team at SAMAD Aerospace has their way, the answer is yes, as Urban Air Mobility becomes more prevalent. And the Q-Starling can be flown by pilots with a modified Private Pilot License (PPL) qualification.
SAMAD aerospace’s concept 2-seat Q-Starling is a high-end Personal Air Vehicle (PAV) combining the best of design elements from jets and vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. SAMAD did not stop there. They also incorporated elements from high-end sports cars such as Aston Martin, Jaguar, and Maserati in the interior design of the cockpit for efficiency, comfort, and visibility.
The use of carbon fiber throughout the PAV leads to high-performance capabilities and enhances maneuverability thanks to the increased strength and lightweight.
