XTI Aircraft TriFan 600 VTOL Jet

The biggest drawback to owning a personal jet is, by far and large, the necessity of an airstrip. Because, most of the time, an airstrip means an airport and airports are inconvenient and obnoxious. But your private helicopter doesn’t have the range or speed to make up the difference. And while you could take your chopper straight to the hangar, you’ll still have to switch vehicles and then taxi the runway, waiting your turn for takeoff. And who has time for that? Of course, you could skip the middleman and get yourself a private jet that can take off like a helicopter. Take XTI Aircraft’s TriFan 600, for example.

Like a military Osprey, this carbon fiber and epoxy structured VTOL jet has the ability to take off and land vertically – thanks to its trio of ducted fans. But, once you’re in the air, your pilot can kick on the dual high performance turboshaft engines – which have a maximum cruising speed of 390 mph (reached in just 90 seconds), 2,600 horsepower, and a range of around 1,500 nautical miles – via the aircraft’s fly-by-wire control system and take this baby up to a maximum altitude of 35,000 feet. And you can enjoy all of this power in comfort and style, thanks to the 5-passenger jet’s business-class interior. The TriFan 600 has more than enough room for you, your colleagues, and some overnight bags – making for a cool getaway whether you’re taking off from your company helipad or your front lawn. Keep your eyes on the skies, as XTI is currently working on putting together a prototype of this impressive personal jet.
