Bellwether Industries' futuristic-looking Volar - which wouldn't look out of place in a James Bond movie - has a target of being in the skies by 2028. The Volar will pioneer a "new category of private urban aircraft for intracity travel", Bellwether said in a release. The final version of the aircraft will measure approximately 10.5 ft (3.2 meters) wide while the prototype model for the recent test flights was roughly half the size. The current Volar aircraft prototype is a two-seater, while the final machine will include space for four to five seats. The flight test was conducted at an altitude of 13 feet (4 metres) with a speed of 40 kilometres per hour (25 miles per hour). The team mentioned that the test flight demonstrated stability and controllability of the prototype and would be the start of a series of development projects.The ultimate vision of a full-scale volar will carry out intracity travels at an altitude of 3,000 feet (915 metres) with a speed of up to 220 kilometres per hour (135 miles per hour).
