St. Petersburg Utility WIG

design by Pete Grey


This design takes its name following old COAAC convention, in this case in honor of Russian pioneers in WIG flight design and mechanics. In actuality the design is inspired by the Flightship 8 WIG, a joint Austrailian/German design that is just now going into production. Unlike the FS-8, the St. Petersburg has a very high endurance, which would enable it to circumnavigate a size 7 world on one tank of fuel. (Incidentally, the FS-8s is listed with a 22 KW engine, which isn't too far from the 48 KW engine listed below)
