Airliner for Sightseeing
Imagine... an airliner designed to give all of the passengers a panoramic view! Imagine fleets of them flying thousands of tourists low and slow throughout a network of resorts located at the world's greatest attractions, no matter how urban or remote.
With STOL runways, hotels, restaurants, shops and ground transportation systems, these franchised complexes are strategically placed along scenic flight paths that wind through areas like the Grand Canyon, the Amazon, the African Plains, the Outback, the Pyramids, Niagara, Victoria and Angel Falls, and along the Nile, the Mississippi and China's Great Wall.
Imagine the Earth is like a magnificent theme park where people on all continents can spend hours, days or weeks touring its wonders while vacationing along the routes of Lewis & Clark, Lafayette, Columbus, Polo, the Pioneers, the French, the Spaniards, the Romans and the Vikings, to name a few.
This worldwide tour operation is managed within a satellite communications & reservations system. The system incorporates an interactive touch-screen monitor, which points out and explains interesting things the passengers clearly see below. They are amazed with the moving maps and displays of their aircraft's flight instruments, navigation systems and weather radar. They enjoy the live video connection with relatives back home, and making unlimited calls to anywhere, even to their fellow passengers, to the reservations center and their flight crew. Because they are visually orientated, informed and in-touch with their world, the public is now comfortable with flying and can relax and enjoy the breathtaking view before them.
