Support increasing for unique VTOL aircraft.
Equity crowdfunders are gearing up for what they hope to be the first commercially certified vertical-takeoff-and-landing (VTOL) plane. XTI Aircraft Company has secured upwards of $10 million in reserved shares to develop the TriFan 600.
With two turboshaft engines and three rotating ducted fans, the TriFan 600 design should take off like a helicopter and fly like an airplane, cruising at altitudes of about 30,000 feet.
