The test of the "flying" water taxi model called SeaBubbles is deployed from 16 to 20 September with two sessions per day, from 8-10am and from 3-5pm.

According to the Daily Mail newspaper, the taxi model is developed on the basis of technology discovered by sailor Alain Thébault and windsurf driver Anders Bringdal.

Production of the SeaBubbles taxi model began in February 2017 after the two "owners" of this innovative project called for 3.45 million euros ($ 3.79 million) to deploy.

In May 2018, a "flying" taxi model was tested on the river. This time, with the support of the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, they conducted a vehicle test from September 16 on the Seine.

On each SeaBubbles, in addition to the driver's seat, there are 4 seats for guests. The September trial will invite visitors to take a tour of Paris in a new way on the route from Issy-les-Moulineaux to Bercy.

The SeaBubbles used the technology invented by Mr. Alain Thébault to equip his first Hydroptere sailing ship in 1994. It is also the fastest sailing boat in the world.

With technology from the Hydroptere yacht, when a passenger SeaBubbles glides on the water, it will not float on the water like a boat.

According to RT station, although called "flying" but in fact this taxi will only lift up from the water about 70cm after reaching a speed of 10km / h in the move.

Hydroptere yachts use the same mechanism that makes the aircraft can take off when exploiting aerodynamic effect with the wings to help create lift.

Page PlugBoats said that if this test project on the Seine is successful, the taxi taxi inventors will consider starting commercial exploitation of SeaBubbles model from the spring of 2020.
