Is a flying Helicarrier possible?
Yes the helicarrier is possible but economically feasible. The basics: nuclear is not a feasible power source to power some turbofans. Multiple fans would be needed to get it to stay airborne and enough reserve that if one fails the others can compensate.
Are Helicarriers practical?
It wouldn’t be practical to use while flying since it would be very dangerous for the crew on the deck, and carriers need a lot of them. People woulb be exposed to winds, shaking and lack of oxygen. Besides, the more time on the air, the more vulnerable the carrier is. Completely impractical.
What is the name of the Avengers jet?
The Quinjet is an advanced aircraft used by S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers for personal transport and aerial combat.
Who built the Quinjet?
the Black Panther
Used primarily by the Avengers, the quinjet first appeared in The Avengers #61 (February 1969) and was designed by the Wakanda Design Group, headed by the Black Panther, T’Challa. Each one is equipped with VTOL capability and five turbojet engines.
Is Quinjet possible?
Turbojets or turbofan jets cannot work in space due to the vacuum, so the instances of the quinjet being used in space are totally unrealistic. Some real jets, the SR-71 for example fly high enough that the pilots should wear pressure suits, and usually do, but it is still inside the earth’s atmosphere.
The Navy has experimented with less-ambitious flying aircraft carriers in the 1930s — its rigid airships such as the USS Macon and USS Akron could each carry up to five biplane fighter aircraft. But the modern military’s budget would likely burst trying to build and operate a full-size flying…
Would you pay to see a flying aircraft carrier?
For now, the U.S. Navy seems happy with the cost-efficiency and flexibility of its floating aircraft carriers — a naval weapon that has dominated the seas since World War II. U.S. taxpayers will likely feel equally happy to pay the movie ticket cost to see the flying Helicarrier, rather than fund one in real life.
Could a 747 be converted into a flying aircraft carrier?
The 747 has proven itself to be an extremely capable aircraft for a wide variety of applications, so it seemed logical when, in the 1970s, the U.S. Air Force began experimenting with the idea of converting one of these large aircraft into a flying aircraft carrier full of “parasite” fighters that could be deployed, and even recovered, in mid-air.
Could a flying aircraft carrier finally become a common facet of air power?
Between the success of this test and other drone wingman programs like Skyborg, the concept of a flying aircraft carrier has seen a resurgence in recent years, and may potentially finally become a common facet of America’s air power.
