This is what the future of air travel might look like, and I have to admit I’m loving every pixel of it. Sure, this graceful helicopter concept might have been designed for the rich and famous, but there’s no point in denying that the Bell FCX-001 looks grand from every single angle.
Bell Helicopter’s new concept has been specially imagined to meet the increasing client demand for state-of-the-art technology and functionality – I mean, what else would you expect from a personalized aircraft desired by customers with no cash limit? The answer to that is probably a little bit more complex; moving on.
Bell‘s FCX-001 helicopter concept benefits from an ultra light airframe constructed out of sustainable materials, and it allows passengers to enjoy ample cabin room as the helicopter travels at incredible speeds. An anti-torque system ensures that every aspect of vertical lift – noise, safety, and performance – has been improved upon, making sure you will get to your next destination in complete comfort and safety.
Hybrids are so popular these days, which is why the team at Bell Helicopter has imagined a propulsion system which combines thermal engine cores with an electric distribution to provide pilots with more control and easier operation. An augmented reality control system complemented by AI reminds us this is still a concept, but things definitely look interesting.
