The company did not transport the entire aircraft, it only brought the cabin, to the exhibition, as an effort to highlight passenger experience. “We’re just keeping our particular propulsion system in configuration to ourselves right now, to keep our competition on their on their heels,” said Scott Drennen, Bell’s director of innovation.
“This vehicle is going to be a part of the Internet of Things. The customer will be experiencing a part of the Internet of Things as they travel in the vehicle, with the connectivity that’s going to happen from the place they took off from to the place they’re going, with the ability to connect to friends, workers, colleagues, et cetera.” He said in a statement.
The company aimed at designing an interior cabin that would acquaint passengers with unique qualities of a vertical flight. Bell calls it a comforting, relaxing space.
