Affectionately named the "Sailing Aircraft," this hybrid concept vehicle by Yelken Octuri can fly four passengers in comfort, land on water, raise its wings, and transform into a sailing vessel. As its dragonfly-like wings rise, two side pods stabilize the craft to navigate its way through the water. The bottom sections of the hatch then open to create a small deck.

Imagine flying to a secluded river or lake, then enjoying an evening sail. After some snacks, raise the side panels, drop the wings and let the Recchia & Husser engine-powered dual propellers lift you skyward to enjoy the sunset.
