  • The aircraft obtained airworthiness certificate and is capable of flying and accommodating passengers – zdolny do odbywania lotów
  • Due to the strike the airline is not capable of providing service to the clients- nie jest w stanie obsłużyć pasażerów

Zwróćcie uwagę, że capable łączymy z „of” + czasownik z formą „ing

  • capable of flying/ capable of managing/ capable of providing

Autonomous Flight—the Sevenoaks, UK-based start-up that is developing a two-seat, all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft—said it has very nearly finalized $25 million of funding for the next stage to build a prototype capable of flight and able to undertake a certification program.

  • meet demand- tutaj: zaspokoić popyt/ sprostać oczekiwaniom, wymaganiom
  • the cities will be able to accommodate only limited amount of aircraft- miasta będą w stanie pomieścić tylko ograniczoną liczbę statków powietrznych
  • in the early days of this new technology- w początkowej fazie/ okresie używania tej technologii

The Y6S  is designed to fly two people at 72 mph and 1,500 feet above the ground, with a range of 80 miles (68 net of reserve power).  The company is also working on the prototype of  a nine-seater (including pilot) named the AS1.  Having analyzed various cities—in particular London, Los Angeles and Paris, the company  said having two- or four-seater eVTOLs will not meet demand  since the cities will be able to accommodate only limited amount of aircraft, at least in the early days of this new technology.

  • overcome the issue- poradzić sobie z problemem
  • applications- zastosowania
  • available for private users- dostępny dla prywatnych użytkowników

The AS1 would overcome this issue and also have other applications, such as cargo carriage. The Y6S would still be available for private users. The company plans to fly it in the third or fourth quarter.

“If we can produce 1,000-plus vehicles, the price could be at the $40,000 level”

  • estimate- szacować/ oceniać/ sądzić
  • bring the Y6S to market- wprowadzić Y6S na rynek
The company estimates that a total of between $32 million and $35 million will be the total funding required to bring the Y6S to market
