This is an individual airship with fluttering wings. It is the first machine that enables people to fly on their own, by fluttering their wings.
The fonctions are reduced to the bare minimum: the muscular power is the engine, the propellers are replaced by a pair of wings that are an extension of the pilot’s arms (pilot’s stance is that of our dreams, lying flat, arms wide open with the head forward.
An egg-shaped helium bubble is fixed to the balloonist’s back. The volume of the envelope is calculated very simply by: pilot’s weight + wings weight + envelope’s weight.
Due to its slow flight speed, to its important inertia and to uncertain weather conditions, the airship is more likely to be practised indoors. Even though in this case, the flight area is confined to the hangar’s size, it allows you to fly under any weather conditions and makes the airship accessible to all.
There are different sizes of airship, depending on the pilot’s weight.
At the moment, we have three different airships: the Nino for children up to 40 kg, the Ciccio for pilots up to 65 kg and the Bornéo for pilots up to 85 kg.
