About the technology: The wing levitation train is flying just like as ground effect plane. The difference is, it flying at a height of some inches from its track and it powered by electrical cables that wired through the middle bottom of the track. It has a number of wings at its two sides and a number of electric propellers are fixed on each of the wings in equal numbers. The wing design with a high lift-low speed, the desired lift can be achieved within a minimum velocity. When a road vehicle's speed reached to at 65 to 70 kilometers / hour, the drag exerted on the vehicle is considerably increased; these drag can be converted to lift to the vehicle with the help of the wings and can also utilize the ground effect because of it flying at the near the ground.

Attractiveness of the system: 

a) The weight of the system is minimum because of the absence of massive body, engine, fuel, massive wheels, shock absorbing system etc. 

b) Since the vehicle - passengers-' weight ratio' is minimum, it will be more efficient.

c) Since the train is flying through the near surface of the ground, because of the 'ground effect', the power conception reduces considerably.

d) Velocity of the train can be considerably increased.

e) Linear motor propulsion system can be also used with the wing levitation train.    

Difficulties: 

a) The flying train will generate high winds on the track and its close surroundings and also there by high dust. But, with the increasing of number of the wings and number of electric propellers, the wind generated by the propellers can be spread out and there by reduce the concentrated wind flow (Wing levitation train with linear motor propulsion systems will not generate wind).    

b) The wing levitated trains requires more track width than ordinary trains because of its wings.
