Half futuristic sailplane and half fighter jet, this five-seat Synergy aircraft is the first example of a new technology for fuel efficient airplanes.
A Kickstarter campaign was launched and has been funded to continue with the full scale prototype, John McGinnis the man behind this aircraft believes that days when flying have always been more expensive than driving yourself are numbered.
The Synergy aircraft can take up to five people and will do an average of 40 mpg, the designers also claim that the aircraft will have 10 times better fuel economy that a regular small jet. Carbon fibre composites and CNC machines are used to build the aircraft, which is to come with steady-flying double box tail shape, this will ensure increased drag reduction and make the design simpler and lighter. A Delta Hawk bio-diesel fuelled propeller engine will power the 32-foot wingspan making the aircraft more energy-efficient and faster.
