If aviation were a country it would rank as the 10th largest global emitter. And that is just today. Every forecast tells us that aviation emissions will grow if left unchecked or without a viable alternative.

An alternative which is more efficient, more comfortable and more sustainable. Our solution is the AeroSlider concept for future transportation. A terrestrial yet rail-less passenger system connecting the most populous cities on the European, African and Asian continents.

Seamless integration

The single-track system is designed to reduce construction costs and integrate with existing infrastructure in urban areas. Additionally, it puts a minimal strain on any environment with the loops allowing unobtrusive passage above irregular terrain, rivers and animal crossings.

Magnetic propulsion

The AeroSlider is equipped with linear magnets that propel it through a connected system of electromagnetic portals. Portal loops can be powered by localized energy sources.

The incorporation of helium reservoirs within the capsule reduces the effective weight by about 10%, reducing the energy necessary for its propulsion.

The inside experience

The system is designed for comfortable long-distance travel by combining sitting spaces with private cabins; incorporating a running track, open plaza area, restaurant, bars, gyms and multi-purpose rooms which can accommodate meetings and work when commuting.
