I've heard rumors that the russians are working on a regenerative power source for prop driven aircraft, apparently it involves some form of composite band that is attached to the prop shaft and runs through to a fixed point at the rear of the fuselage. Initial tests have been succesfully conducted using scale models and a full scale test aircraft which is approximately the same size as a cessna caravan has now been built with the first flight due as soon as they have sufficient funding to hire personnel for the critical pre-flight power induction phase.

Hopes are that the aircraft could be used in third world countries to deliver much needed goods and medical supplies to remote areas that lack normal energy resources.

I've heard rumours that an individual in Romania has developed a 100% biodegradeable rocket fuel capable of sending objects out of this world. Prince Vlad looks forward to welcoming all investors interested in the project personally...
