This futuristic jet you could stash it on a helipad in your backyard

The TriFan 600 vertical takeoff personal jet, made by XTI Aircraft Company (XTI), could revolutionise the way people travel, Business Insider reported.

The TriFan 600, a six-seat airplane which combines the speed, range and comfort of a business jet has the ability to take off and land like a helicopter.

It would become the first commercial high-speed, long-range vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) airplane.

No traditional jet, helicopter or other aircraft can offer the same world of possibilities, because not one of them can provide true door-to-door travel with the speed, range or operational flexibility needed for true efficiency.

That means you could stash this plane on a helipad near your house since it doesn’t need a runway.

The Interior of the futuristic jet

The TriFan 600 is both beautiful and highly functional. It is visually distinguished by a sleek exterior, and three ducted fans in lieu of extruding propellers or rotors.

With the TriFan 600, executives will have the ability to bypass highways and runways, potentially saving hundreds of hours a year.

Ten years ago, the late David Brody founded a helicopter company, AVX Aircraft Company, to develop and introduce advanced rotorcraft technology —  coaxial rotors replacing the main rotor, combined with two rear ducted fans for propulsion and directional control.  The purpose of this new helicopter was to make rotorcraft faster, safer, and more compact  (no tail or tail rotor) and therefore more accessible to the mass market.
