Segmented Safety Aircraft would fulfill the need for an occupant safety system
for commercial or general aviation and military applications.
Appealing features, by using the ejection-equipped passengers compartment or
compartment modules that are suggested, it would offer the advantages of
increased occupant protection in the event of a take off, in flight or landing emergency.
Segmented Safety Aircraft could also be used in industry. Each module could
be used to carry merchandise instead of passengers. These modules could be
any length. It maybe possible that these modules could be loaded at the
factory, hauled on specially designed trucks and connected at the airport
to any leaving Segmented Safety Aircraft. These modules are interchangeable
allowing passengers and cargo the option of taking the first flight out
Segmented Safety Aircraft uses all available space, with airlines taking
advantage of all flying time. After arriving at destination module is again
removed and delivered unopened to customer. Reducing labor cost and any risk
of theft in the unloading and loading process. This feature would also save
time and fuel from order to delivery making produce fresher. Not forgetting
the safety of the cargo in case of an in-flight emergency.
Military could use Segmented Safety Aircraft when delivering soldiers,
machinery or supplies. It could be used as a emergency hospital or temporary
base station. The possibilities are endless.
As a side feature these concepts of the invention could also be used in cases
of air piracy. The aircraft could be segmented and an air-hijacker would be
immobilized or knocked out either by failure to get sufficient oxygen or by
breathing in the immobilizing mixture, which is intended to immobilize the passengers.
