How Do Hydrogen Cars Work? The Skai electric flying passenger vehicle, developed by Alaka’i Technologies, was unveiled recently in Newbury Park, Calif to show us how. As in the futuristic cartoon The Jetson’s perhaps the flying car is actually HERE…
A transportation company is betting its sleek new hydrogen-powered electric flying vehicles will someday serve as taxis, cargo carriers and ambulances of the sky, but experts say they still need to complete a number regulatory steps before the vehicle is legal in California or elsewhere.
The Massachusetts-based “flying car” company, led by veterans of NASA, Raytheon, Airbus, Boeing, and the Department of Defense, unveiled a mockup of the six-rotor aircraft, called Skai, in Los Angeles at the offices of BMW Designworks, with which it partnered on the aircraft’s design.
Alaka’i says the final product will be able to fly for up to four hours and cover 400 miles on a single load of fuel, which can be replenished in 10 minutes at a hydrogen fueling station. It has built a functional, full-scale prototype that will make its first flight “imminently,” a spokesperson says.
Everyday Air Mobility. Fueled By Hydrogen. Powered By Simplicity. Skai is a radically simple air mobility system designed to go from A to Anywhere. It is the first hydrogen powered eVTOL vehicle and service. Skai uses an energy source that’s truly clean from end to end.
