How the World’s First Solid State Aircraft Achieves Propulsion With No Moving Parts

Last year, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) made the first sustained flight of a heavier-than-air aircraft with no moving parts. It was propelled by electroaerodynamic propulsion, which requires no moving parts and was, by many definitions, the first ever solid state flight. This article explains exactly how it works and what the

MIT Researchers Create Plane That Flies Without Any Moving Parts

Researchers at MIT have developed a plane capable of flying without any moving parts, reports MIT Technology Review . The feat was achieved using electroaerodynamic propulsion, which uses a pair of electrodes to push around ions and create ionic wind. The phenomenon has been known about since the 1960s (in fact, Apple even considered using
