National Presentation of the Flexcraft Project
On the 28th of January, Instituto Superior Técnico hosted FLEXCRAFT - Flexible Aircraft - for the presentation of the modular aircraft that allows the reconfiguration of the cabin for different flight missions: passenger and cargo transport; support for civil protection activities; surveillance, agriculture, among others.
The full-scale model of the fuselage stood out for its elegant and innovative exterior shape, with an interior detailed in its layout, geometry, materials, finish and lighting. In addition to the “taxi” configuration presented, with 5 seats for passengers, a virtual reality experience has been added, allowing visitors to enter an “executive” cabin and sit in the crew seat in a “search and rescue” cabin.
The project was developed by ALMADESIGN, INEGI, IST, SET SA and Embraer Portugal SA and was funded by Portugal 2020, within the scope of the Operational Program for Competitiveness and Internationalization through the European Regional Development Fund.
