A tech start-up called “Cockpit” wants to make you fly a plane in an actual cockpit.
It’s the brainchild of former University of Utah engineering professor Michael Pang, who wants to turn flying into a viable industry.
“The main goal of this company is to revolutionize the way we look at aviation,” Pang said.
“Cockpits are not just something that comes from science fiction, they’re real,” he said.
“We think we can get it right.”
Pang is one of the most recognized figures in the field of advanced technology.
His company is developing a new type of jet engine, which could be used in fighter jets.
He has also made other aviation innovations.
“We don’t see it as a ‘next-generation’ technology.
The way we’re thinking about this is, ‘Hey, we’re trying to do this as efficiently as possible,'” Pang explained.
The company is working with Lockheed Martin and Boeing, but it has yet to receive approval from the FAA.
It is also seeking regulatory approval for its engine.
Pang said he has been working on the project for about a year.
He says he has developed a prototype that he hopes will be able to fly for at least five minutes.
The idea is to use high-performance materials to make the aircraft look and feel like an airplane.
Pangs team uses titanium alloy and a composite material called composite epoxy to create the cockpit.
The titanium alloy is used to make titanium composite, which is a composite that is strong, lightweight and flexible.PANG’s team has also designed an engine that is made of a material called aluminum and is a key component of Boeing’s 777X.
It could be part of the future planes, but the technology is still in its infancy.
“I think the main issue that we are trying to solve is how do we design the airplane so that we can actually fly it,” Pangs co-founder Adam Stang told ABC News.
“So that you can actually take off, land, and land in the cockpit.”
Pangs engine uses a combination of carbon fiber and aluminum.
It uses titanium for its main composite.
Pigs, cows, chickens and other animals could be on board, he said, but no one has yet been assigned a pilot.
Peng said he hopes to have the first aircraft flying by 2019.
