The surface of the saucer-shaped craft will be covered with electrodes that, when powered by a battery or other power source, will ionize the
surrounding air to create plasma. When charged with an electric current, the polarized plasma will repel the non-polarized air, creating lift and
thrust. Such an aircraft would have very stable flight characteristics, with the pilot controlling it by diverting the electrical charge to different
parts of the surface."
