Just as with wild superyacht concepts, many designers can’t resist trying to push the boundaries of flight with outlandish and incredible private jet concepts. From vertical take-offs and Mach 24 speed to lowering carbon emissions and providing panoramic views, here are some of the most amazing private jet concepts around.
Aston Martin Volante Vision
For car makers who have conquered everything the ground has to offer, the skies offer new frontiers for exploration. Hot on the heels of the HondaJet, Aston Martin unveiled its own private jet concept in July 2018 in the form of the Volante Vision Concept which was designed in collaboration with Cranfield University, Cranfield Aerospace Solution and Rolls-Royce. The space age-style design features vertical take-off and landing capability, can seat three adults and was created with the idea of offering a futuristic alternative to cars and reducing inner city road congestion in mind. The aircraft is powered by a gas turbine hybrid propulsion system along with a tri-rotor propeller system, while an integrated battery pack would mean short trips can be completed using only electric power, with Aston Martin estimating the Volante Vision would be able to travel non-stop for up to 250 miles at a speed of 200mph.
