Safe and
Comfortable

The Wing-In-Ground’s simple system operability minimises the risk of flight accidents and technical errors that may arise from pilot or operator dependency. At a lower flight altitude and above sea-water, passenger altitude sickness or motion sea-sickness is also be significantly reduced. Should an engine hardware failure unexpectedly occur, the WIG is able to land immediately on an ever-present runway merely 1 meter or 2 below.

Fast and
Fuel-efficient

The WIG operates on aerodynamic lift and literally glides on a air cushion of about 0.5-6 meters above the sea water. The unique design allows it to avoid contact with water (a medium 800 times heavier than air) and its strong yet light composite fibre body allows longer durability than most marine crafts. Compared to larger marine crafts, the WIG is able to consume lesser fuel whilst traversing at a faster speed (80 knots versus 10-20 knots).

Elegant
and Versatile

The WIG is classified as a marine craft and designed to take off and land on water. It runs on readily available automotive grade fuel and is powered by a car engine that is comparable to its power-to-weight ratio to an aircraft turbo engine. Flying the airfish is so simple so much that a simplified yet effective approach can be taken to the training and qualification of the crew.

Minimum Infrastructures

As a waterborne vehicle, WIG requires no runway for take-off and landing. Hence, minimizing set up cost incurred by the government or private operators to operate the craft. In addition, berthing station for WIG may be built rapidly with relatively simple, inexpensive and traditional method, such as: combination of wooden jetty and polymer pontoon. Relatively low draught of WIG allows the docking station to be constructed in the shallow water area not to far from the shore line.
