A Turkish architecture firm named Dahir Insaat has designed a concept for a flying train that would serve as a form of mass transportation. The multi-level flying train could carry up to 2,000 passengers and would fly at a low level while drawing power from a tether attached to the track.

The flying train would have a cruising speed of over 300 mph making it one of the fastest forms of mass transportation. Instead of using jet fuel, the flying trains over dozen motors would be powered via the trains tether. The concept's motto is "Flying low and riding high".
The flying train concept's creators at Dahir Insaat said, "This hybrid train and plane is good because of several factors: the first remaining attached to the current collector in a steel trestle, we will always have enough power to make any maneuver, high-torque motors would do wonders of acceleration at their full power, furthermore, aviation now expects 7 kilowatt electric motors from producers with the capacity per kilogram of the motor's own weight."

"Even though a passengers transport would not require that much power, it is at an advantage to have a power reserve that is always with you and doesn't burden you (as it is beneath you). The gravity of the aircraft (the ratio of the thrust of the aircraft's powerplant to its weight) is one of the most important parameters that determine the aircraft's flying characteristics. The maximum speed of the aircraft, the climb time (climbing speed) and acceleration to the specified speed, as well as its maneuverability, depends on the thrust.
"When flying, when we can consume an almost unlimited amount of energy (at least a few megawatts) through the current collector, the apparatus can have a very high carrying capacity, and the figures of 1000-2000 passengers are not fictional. The speed of 500 km / h can be the usual cruising speed throughout the entire flight from station to station."
