A triplane with an advanced wing will make it cheaper to fly

The British airline company Faradair is developing the concept of a hybrid triplan for near-highway electric travel. Bio Electric Hybrid Aircraft is 19 seats and will operate on an electric engine. A small gas turbine in the aircraft will generate the necessary electricity.

The three-tier structure of the BEHA wing allows short runways to be used. According to Director General Faradair Neil Claui, there will be fewer moving parts in BEHA, which will reduce the cost of operating, and there are solar batteries on the aircraft's wings.

According to Klauey, lower operating costs will also affect consumers, which will reduce the cost of flights, and the aircraft is designed to be environmentally friendly. "We have decided that we will create an aircraft that is not only economical in use and therefore cost-effective but also quiet and sustainable," Clauey explains.

The plane will eventually be able to transport people, for example, between London and Manchester, for about £25 one way, cheaper than a train trip between two cities.
