Companies are developing the most efficient ways to meet the world’s energy needs as the demand for energy grows as technology improves and the population grows. We’ve already seen a few examples, such as solar-powered cars and solar-paneled houses.
Due to its vast wing area, László Németh, a designer at Lasky Design, has developed a solar-powered aircraft concept capable of solar flight with zero emissions. Falcon Solar is a concept design that deviates from traditional aircraft design by utilizing the advantages of flying wings.
Nature has long provided good ideas to engineers and designers. The streamlined concept, inspired by the bodies of birds of prey, has two large wings that curve upwards in a very harmonious way, a low and elongated cockpit, and a pointed tail.
The fuselage generates significant lift while also providing a surface for the solar panels, making the shape unique. It doesn’t appear to have any rudders or stabilizers, and its cabin appears to be very small. As a result, predicting how Falcon Solar would perform in the real world is difficult.
The Falcon Solar is a passenger aircraft designed to make air travel more efficient and less expensive. Németh emphasized that climbing to higher altitudes could help overcome the difficulties of flying on a cloudy day or at night, which would prevent the solar panels from generating power.
Though it is only an idea for the time being, the designer hopes that his daring and innovative concept will inspire the aviation industry to develop new and more efficient aircraft.
