What altitudes are reached by Skytrack?
Skytrack flies below the clouds at 3,000-5,000 feet above ground
Due to its light frame, lack of jet fuel, and electric power source, Skytrack can reach speeds up to 450mph, matching speeds of today's commercial planes.
How fast can Skytrack fly?
What if the train becomes involved in an accident?
In the event of an emergency, the plane will be able to detach its cable connection to the train, avoiding an accident and landing at a nearby airport on a backup power supply.
Skytrack stations will be outside of major metro urban areas, allowing ample space for Skytrack to safely travel from point A to point B.
Where will Skytrack Stations be located?
What happens during unsafe weather conditions?
The plane can safely descend and temporarily dock onto the train, traveling together to a nearby Skytrack station.
Due to the current limitations of battery technology, the train acts as an energy source, providing energy either wired or wirelessly.
What is the function of the train?
How much does it cost to travel on Skytrack?
Powered by electricity and potentially autopilot AI technology, we expect Skytrack to be more affordable than traveling by plane.
Running on a backup battery, the plane will fly to a nearby airport or Skytrack station for emergency landing.
What if the plane loses its connection midflight?
Why not just take a train?
Many countries have advanced train systems, but they are costly to build and maintain. Skytrack travel is faster than conventional train rides and environmentally conscious.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q: Why not just opt for a high-speed train instead of an airplane?
A: Existing rail networks can only facilitate speeds of up to 200 to 250 mph, including those in Europe, China, Japan, and Korea. However, Skytrack can achieve double this speed!
Q: Is it possible to design locomotive to reach 480 mph?
A: The Skytrack locomotive is exclusively designed for speed, like a bullet—constructed from lightweight carbon fiber and housing the most powerful motor, sans the provisions for passengers, cargo, or service areas. It is a bullet in the truest sense (Skytract has developed a confidential design model).
Q: Why is high speed a priority?
A: Given the expansive geography of America, modern society and businesses demand rapid transit solutions. The goal is to cut down travel times between major cities, like Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, to less than half a day, avoiding the inconvenience of prolonged stays, meals, and hotel accommodations that come with extended travel times. This is why air travel is the preferred mode of transportation for most Americans. In today’s world, speed takes precedence, embodying the adage "Time is money.” Achieving a blend of speed, safety, comfort, and affordability forms the cornerstone of a successful transportation business, aligning perfectly with current consumer preferencenes for mass transit on the horizon?
Q: Will the world soon get battery-powered mass planes?
A: While battery-powered mass planes might eventually become a reality, current technology has yet to devise a capable battery for the near future. As time is of the essence, relying on uncertain technological advancements is not viable. Despite potential future developments in battery-powered mass airplanes, Skytrack promises to be a more cost-effective and safer alternative, eliminating the need for airports and pilots.
Q: Is the electrical wire connected to the aircraft safe?
A: Absolutely The safety of the electrical connections has been proven in existing electric train setups. Moreover, the Skytrack’s connecting wire is designed to automatically disconnect the power source in the event of a system failure.
Q: Can the connected electric wire endure wind speeds up to 480 miles per hour?
A: Indeed, the system includes a strong support wire equipped with a power wire and an LED safety guidance light to ensure stability and safety even at high speeds.
Q: When can we use the laser beam power transfer technology?
A: A prominent company specializing in laser power transfer has been progressing rapidly with the development of a more powerful transformer system. In the near future, Skytrack is considering adopting this technology once it reaches fruition.
Q: Will not the construction of a new rail network be prohibitively expensive?
A: Yes, it will entail significant expenses, but it will prove more economical than constructing a new highway or upgrading the current railway infrastructure. Moreover, it will not require a fully supportive railway system, given that SKYTRACK trains and planes will be lightweight (constructed from carbon fiber) and operate on a monorail system positioned approximately 3 feet above ground.
Q: Is Skytrack powered by clean solar energy?
A: Yes, Skytrack will incorporate extensive solar panels along the railway, spanning hundreds or even thousands of miles. (Nevertheless, the United States also aims to establish solar power facilities wherever feasible.)
Q: What contingency plans are in place for emergencies like hurricanes or severe storms? What happens to the aircraft?
A: In the event of such emergencies, the aircraft will land on the transporter train, functioning in unison until conditions stabilize. If the train or rail encounters issues, the aircraft detaches from the train and proceeds to a designated emergency landing area powered by a battery backup.
Q: Where are the stations planned to be set up?
A: The stations are planned to be situated in proximity to towns, albeit outside the immediate boundaries.
Q: Is flat terrain a prerequisite for the Skytrack system?
A: Initially, flat and straight landscapes are preferred to facilitate the high-speed capabilities of Skytrack. However, ongoing technical developments are expected to allow the system to adeptly navigate hilly and mountainous terrain, ensuring safe travel at speeds of up to 480 mph without the risk of derailment.
Q: Why is there no requirement for pilots?
A: The integrated autopilot system is capable of controlling both flight and landing operations because it is connected to the landing train, allowing both to synchronize their operations to attain the necessary takeoff or landing speeds. This approach enhances safety and simplifies the process.
Q: Why is a runway not necessary for Skytrack operations?
A: Given that the airplane can initiate flight from the train, the need for a runway is obviated. This method also accentuates safety during both the takeoff and landing phases.
