6 Awesome Aircraft From The 2013 Paris Air Show

6 Awesome Aircraft From The 2013 Paris Air Show

New technology is something that is discovered everyday, there's always that new gadget or device that we all want, but don't really need. However, there is also some very cool technologies being used in the production of air planes and aircraft nowadays. From robotic plains to drones, check out 6 Awesome Aircraft From The 2013 Paris Air Show. Light Electric Trainer: Designed by European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company and Aero Composites Saintonge, the E-Fan is a two-seat training plane that's fully electric. Drone Ballet: Paris would be nothing without its high culture. At the air show, this was provided by a swarm of Parrot AR quadrotors. Cheap and commercially available, these toy helicopters are the first major hobbyist drone to take off.



 Here, at least 16 8 of them and 8 more in a mirror fly in formation through a medley of music, ranging from Wagner to Sinatra to modern techno. They even do flips! Sky Prius: The Diamond Aircraft DA36 E-Star 2 is basically a flying Prius. It debuted at the Paris Air Show in 2011, but was back this year for a second-generation showcase. Piaggio Aero P.1HH HammerHead: The Italian-made HammerHead is Europe's largest drone. Following the path of the Firescout C, this massive turboprop is built on the body of a commercial airplane, one usually full of people. In this case, it started as a P.180 Avanti II, a plane known for its unusual forward wing. In aviation circles, that's known as a canard, but from where I sit, it looks like an airplane mustache. Sukhoi Su-35: Russian fighter jets are well known for their maneuverability, which most famously led to incredibly challenging dogfights in the skies above Vietnam. Project Zero Tiltrotor: Welcome to the future. With the super-subtle code name "Project Zero," this plane has it all. It's a tiltrotor, like the famous vertical-takeoff-and-landing V-22 Osprey. It's hybrid, like the the E-Star 2. Project Zero can be flown with a pilot on board or without. It looks almost completely alien. And it is only a technology demonstration, rather than the first of a new line of products
