Horizon SystemHorizon System

Which brings up a uniquely interesting design feature. The Horizon Project has no cockpit. No cockpit means no pilot, which in turn means that this massive passenger-laden airplane/train/lounge is in fact (cue the drumroll) a drone. With six train cars housed in its belly, The Horizon Project is quite easily the largest drone ever proposed — and possibly the largest ever conceived.

So who are all these crew members, you might ask. Well, bartenders and concierge, of course. What with the massive drone not requiring sleep or fueling times, The Horizon Project is planned to stay aloft in perpetuity, never landing and never ceasing its relentless quest to get you where you need to go. There's no word yet on how the (captive?) crew ever disembark or the flying wing handle's maintenance. But problems like those are minuscule in relation to the massive shift the aviation industry would have to undergo to accommodate The Horizon Project. But with the design planned for implementation in the year 2050, maybe even that largest of hurdles could be crested in time for us to board one of these gigantic transit drones in our lifetime. If that happens, we'll gladly raise a prisoner-bartender poured martini to the aviation revolution of tomorrow.
