TriFan 600 VTOL Plane

We hate dealing with the airport shuffle. You’re supposed to get there two hours ahead of your flight, then you have to go through security checkpoints, check your baggage and whatnot, and by the time you’re done with it all, you still have an hour and a half to kill. Now, the TriFan 600 VTOL aims to take the airport out of the equation as it uses three ducted fans to takeoff and land from areas no bigger than a heliport.

This five-passenger aircraft turns one of the fans off after it’s in the air and engages its dual turboshaft engines. It reaches full cruising speed in 90 seconds. It can cover up to 1,200 miles without having to stop for a refuel, and can hit altitudes over 30,000 feet. Like its takeoff, this plane also lands vertically, so it can take you right to your destination as opposed to an airport. [Purchase]
