Skypalace luxury cruise passing the pyramids at Giza Skylifter is an Australian firm building the upgrade to blimps that can carry weights helicopters cannot. Their new air ship converts the model of blimps from the cigar shape to a saucer. Hence, it is a flying saucer in the sky. Skylifters are easier to steer than blimps and can carry enough wait to relocate entire buildings.

Rest assured the lighter-than-air gas filled saucer is enormous. The radius of a Skylifter is about the size of a football stadium at 500ft wide. It will seamlessly maneuver using propellers that can be adjusted to change direction. It can be used in many projects where other terrestrial payload transport services can’t go.

So if you need cargo in isolated, mountainous, waterlogged or forest regions, Skylifter is capable of bringing it.

In the development of this futuristic thing a 10ft prototype called Betty and can carry just over a pound in weight. Skylifter has also produced a 60ft-wide prototype of the balloon design itself, no engine. They plan to launch a nearly 150ft wide prototype pretty soon.

The new airship would consist of three main sections. Floating at the top would be the symmetrical saucer. It is permanently filled with lighter-than-air gas to become and remain airborne. Hanging on suspension lines below it would be the cylindrical control pod, with the two-pilot flight deck mounted on the bottom.

Biodiesel engines, augmented by solar panels on the saucer top, would generate electricity to power three propellers mounted on the sides of the control pod. The propellers would be cycloid, meaning that the blades would be arranged horizontally for the exact maneuvering needed for the collecting and depositing of cargo.

Best about it is that the Skylifter so far has four concepts with more purpose than lifting buildings. Of which, there is the Skypalace Ariel Cruiser for commercial passengers and Skyrover Ariel Platform for patrol and interdiction. Will you be buying a Skypalace ticket when they’re available?
