Set in the not-too-distant future, this new concept plane features an astonishing layout that resembles a bird in flight. And not only does it look like a bird, but it is good for the birds; by using quantum mechanic technology, it would produce zero-contaminant emissions. Designed by Oscar Viñals  the AWWA-QG “Progress Eagle” Quantum Airplane could brighten the skies of the future of air travel.

Concept airplanes are a fascinating subject because of their immense design possibilities and huge space for conceptual features. One new concept plane that everyone is talking about is the Airbus Concept Plane, which promises to “stretch the imagination of engineers” and would use intelligent materials and new manufacturing methods. This plane would focus more on the passenger experience, while the Progress Eagle is geared more towards a clean impact on the environment.

Beautiful designs and low eco impact

Many fliers are interested in the “greenness” of airlines as we all try to reduce ecological impact while traveling. Travel sites like Seat Guru provide information on fuel-efficient airlines, with Alaska Airlines in the most recent top spot. Progress Eagle would hope to provide one of the greenest rides for passengers by utilizing superconductive fuel-cell engines and a CO2 in-air cleaning system to reduce/eliminate its emissions while still in flight.

As is evident from Oscar’s previous design work, he is very interested in producing new concept aircraft. As the Progress Eagle is shaped like a bird to allude to its positive eco impact, so too are his products like “Sky Whale” reminiscent of the same ideal.
