Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus (10) for permitting a flying vehicle (2) to land on or take off therefrom whilst the apparatus (10) is airborne, the apparatus (10) including: • a surface (20) for supporting the flying vehicle (2) during landing or when taking off; • at least one propulsion device (12, 14, 16, 18) for sustaining flight of the apparatus (10) and for positioning the surface (20) in a desired landing or taking off orientation; and • a link (24) which is connectable at one end to a land- or sea-going vehicle (1), for tethering the apparatus (10) relative thereto.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil (10) conçu pour permettre à un véhicule volant (2) d'atterrir ou de décoller à destination/en provenance de celui-ci lorsque l'appareil (10) est en suspension dans l'air. L'appareil (10) comprend : • une surface (20) conçue pour supporter le véhicule volant (2) pendant un atterrissage ou un décollage ; • au moins un dispositif de propulsion (12, 14, 16, 18) conçu pour maintenir le vol de l'appareil (10) et pour positionner la surface (20) dans une orientation d'atterrissage ou de décollage souhaitée ; et • un lien (24) pouvant être relié à une extrémité à un véhicule terrestre ou maritime (1) et permettant d'attacher l'appareil (10) à celui-ci.
