WIGS For The Islands

WIG is the acronym for “Wing in ground effect.” WIGS are small aircraft that fly very close to the water, using ground effect to reduce the power required. They fly at up to 200KMH from 7 to 10 metres above the ocean, taking off and landing on the water. A new company called Canary Island WIGS is proposing services linking some of the main cities of the islands, and they hope to begin a trial service in summer 2020.

Here’s video of them in action:
