Taking inspiration from Airbus’ existing family of cutting-edge aircraft, the Airbus A-180 Drone project looks a lot like something that might already exist in their modern fleet! However, the scaled-down design is less concerned with moving people and more about helping them during emergencies.

To deliver a payload of emergency supplies, it utilizes three double engines – one at the rear for forward thrust and two integrated in the wings for upward and downward maneuvering. Able to take off and land vertically or horizontally, it can safely enter danger zones. Upon arrival, it releases a cargo capsule capable of transporting everything from medicine and antivenin to supplemental blood and even organs.

Designer: Reza Salianeh
