I would like to have some feedback from you guys. What do you think about the Freedom Ship International Project?
If they ever build it it will become the first civilian aircraft carrier.
A quote from the site:
Misperception: The aircraft flight deck can accept 747 aircraft.
Facts: The largest aircraft this flight deck can accept are turboprop aircraft in the 38 to 40-passenger range. We have spent a lot of work investigating the safety and noise factors associated with this facet of the ship and we believe this can be done in a safe and quiet manner. The reason we incorporated this facility into the design of Freedom Ship is because helicopters are expensive to purchase and operate, they are limited to only a short operational range, they carry only a few passengers, and their overall safety factor is less than that of fixed wing aircraft. Fixed wing aircraft are economically and strategically more practical for our requirements.
From who will they get the certification? the FAA? Does this projet seems to you realistic?
It will become the primary destination for the major airliners!
