High Voltage Propulsion

In the quest for human electronic flight, one approach is using
electrically charged, polarized, proprietary alloys to create
thrust. The flow of ions from one electrode to another moves air
which is pushed when these ions collide in an air medium. Electrons
driven across an air-gap create a flow in that media when they
collide with particulates in the air, resulting in thrust
directionally opposite to the master cathode.

The voltage applied to two electrodes must be high enough to create
the ion process conduction current needed to begin the propulsion
process. Normally ion collision begins at around 20,000 volts. For
more information on this unusual high voltage application, see
