The flying apparatus, "Ekip" is a means of transport of the new generation that's designed for transport of passangers and (LUGGAGE) and also to
solve problems in putting out forest fires, to transport rescue teams, and to deliver help to areas with emergency situations, including water rescues
(PICTURE ON LAND)
In order to take off and land, Ekip uses a takeoff-landing mechanism on a pillow of air from any category of aerodromes, that include dry land fields
and water surfaces. It is unnecessary to change the infrustructure of already-existing airoports.
(PICTURE ON WATER)
Apparatus, "EKIP" is capable of reaching flight velocities as fast as airplanes, and also as fast as.. [Dunno. Not helicopter]
(LINK: TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF FLYING APPARATUS "EKIP")
In the event of engine failure, EKIP is capable of making an emergency accident-free landing on land or air.
(PICTURE OF EKIP) (PICTURE OF.. PART OF EKIP?)
Inside EKIP are synchronous, automatic computerised decisions that support one another and which are also in agreement with the main consensions of
air-travel until and including the year 2001. (Well close enough anyway!)
* The shape of EKIP looks like a fat wing that combines the purpose of a wing and a fuselage.
* The system of active control of the flow of air is near the top of EKIP, that ensures its non-stop (FLIGHT?).
* The system of an air-pillow that allows it to not require an aerodrome because it controls the counter-effect of heavy, concentrated pressure on the
main body of EKIP. Ekip does not require landing gear during takeoff and landing.
* Economic turbo-engines that allow for dual regime of operation. (Close enough...)
Ok didn't translate EVERYTHING on that page but you got the main idea. It's part-hovercraft part UFO.
