Develops New Wing Technology That Could Revolutionize Aviation
The 50-year-old Danish engineer and pilot Allan Molbech is developing a new wing technology that he believes could revolutionize aviation. Wings are designed to be more efficient and fuel-efficient than traditional wings, and they could also make it possible for small planes to land and take off from shorter runways.
Molbech has been working on his new wing technology for the past years, and he is currently in the process of developing a prototype. He hopes to have the prototype ready by the end of next year, and he is then planning to seek funding to build a full-scale aircraft.
Molbech believes that his new wing technology could have a major impact on the aviation industry. He believes that his wings could make flying more affordable and more accessible, and he also believes that they could make flying more environmentally friendly.
Molbech is a passionate advocate for his new wing technology, and he is determined to make it a reality. He believes that his wings have the potential to change the way we fly, and he is excited to see what the future holds for his project.
Here are some of the benefits of the new wing technology
New wing technology is still in the early stages of development, but it has the potential to revolutionize aviation. If successful, the wings could make flying more affordable, accessible, and environmentally friendly.
Here are some bullet points:
- Increased efficiency: The wings are designed to be more efficient than traditional wings, which could lead to reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
- Shorter runways: Wings could make it possible for small planes to land and take off from shorter runways, which could make flying more accessible in remote areas.
- Increased safety: Wings are designed to be more stable and maneuverable than traditional wings, which could lead to improved safety.
In other words, the benefit are many.
How it started
It all started five years ago when Allan Molbech took his pilot's license and invested in his own two-seater plane. He began to think about the challenges of flying – it requires long runways, is noisy, and uses a lot of fuel.
"It must be possible to do better," he thought to himself again and again. He started to look at the wing design. The idea was that some of the challenges could be overcome by changing the aerodynamics of the plane's wings.
Allan Molbech loves the ultimate feeling of freedom that comes with flying. Now, he wants to revolutionize flight with a new type of wing. Big thoughts are being thought in the small office at Stauning Airport. It is exciting to see what the future holds.
"I found out that some of the same ideas were worked on in the 1930s. But at that time, they did not have the same technical capabilities as we do today. NASA sniffed around something similar in the 1960s, but since then, nothing much has happened," he says.

Molbech is convinced that he can combine the best features of a helicopter and an airplane with his wing design for the future of flight.
"It means that I imagine that, for example, large companies in the future will be able to take off and land small passenger planes from their own parking lots, because you only need a very short runway to take off and land," he says.
This would mean that business people could avoid time-consuming transportation to and from the airport and completely avoid the check-in wait. The planes would also be able to reduce fuel consumption at takeoff. This could make flying more environmentally friendly and much cheaper.
"The more I calculate and draw on my idea, the more I have been confirmed that it is not just a nerdy air castle. The next big step will be to produce a prototype and patent it. It will happen within the next years," he says.
Airplane Production in Stauning
So far, the work on the airplane wing has been done at Allan Molbech's own expense. In addition to the development, Allan Molbech has a consulting job, so there is still some money coming into the account. But he has reached a point where he needs startup capital for further development.
"The next big step will be to get a prototype made, and then I need to patent the idea. Once that is in place, the whole thing does not have to be so secret anymore. Then I will go to the big air shows where the industry participates," he says.
His great vision is that the idea can develop in Jutland.
"Think if we can get airplane production back to Denmark and to Jutland. It would mean a lot to me if we could create a company here in Stauning. It would be fantastic. I believe 100% in my idea. I would be sad if I did not pursue it. Fortunately, I have full support from home," says Allan Molbech.
