Wig is megasfera for creativity. The court, working at the intersection of two elements, able to swim and fly. One who will be able to run airfoil on the passenger line will become a billionaire.
WIG Ekrnoplan Orca-100
Ten seat WIG Ekrnoplan Orca-100 (class "C", shield) is designed for transporting
passengers along rivers, lakes, in the coastal stripes of the seas, and
can also be used for other purposes. It is possible to build specialized options - cargo, rescue, patrol. To date, the Orca-100 is the only project in the world capable of realizing regular scheduled transportation in the future. The WIG whales are designed according to the unique aerodynamic
scheme of the semi-tandem, which made it possible to solve many
problems, because of which earlier it was impossible to transport the
ekranoplanes of the classic airplane scheme: The problem of stability and safety of flight is solved. Improved seaworthiness. Significantly improved economy.
WIG craft Orca-1
WIG craft ( ekranoplan ) ORCA-1 to was designed according to the idea of an ekranoplan-tandem, but unfortunately, did not reach production. This happened in those distant times when there were still people in the country who understood how to build ekranoplans. Now many things have been forgotten, and therefore you simply will not find an alternative. There are no detailed drawings of other ekranoplanes. The complexity of designing ekranoplans is that they go beyond the competence of both aircraft designers and shipbuilders. The Ekranoplan is not an airplane. To the ekranoplan, huge demands are placed on strength and stability. In this case, the ekranoplan should be much easier than any ship or boat.
What is WIG?
The Ekranoplan (WIG craft) is an aircraft using a screen effect. Ekranoplans are much more economical and faster than high-speed watercraft, more economical than planes and even cars. For almost a century people are trying to learn the flight on the screen, but until now the ekranoplans have not become mass vehicles. There are many reasons for this, but the main one lies in the difficulty of ensuring accident-free flights. The water (earth) nearby, the slightest error of the pilot and even a sudden gust of wind lead to trouble. In the 50-ies of the last century there were two ekranoplannyh schools, which nevertheless created quite reliable ekranoplans. Since then, the design idea is a well-trodden path, trying to improve what is.
