World's 1st Electric Flying Passenger Ship Completes Tests Ahead of Prouction and Service in 202

• Good News Network

It's the world's first electric flying passenger ship, and it recently completed all tests with flying colors, delighting the manufacturer, Candela Technology.

During its first flights, Candela P-12 confirmed its top speed of 30 knots, (35 mph) a record for electric passenger vessels. With a range of up to 50 nautical miles, it is also the first electric ship with the practical endurance to cover most coastal transport needs.

Tests also confirmed the minimal wake, which opens up for exemptions from speed limits, as the P-12 will neither erode coastlines nor damage docks and moored ships, even at full speed.
