Revolutionary VTOL picks up speed as XTI are extended invitation to exhibit in highly sought after pavilion during Paris Airshow.
The XTI Aircraft Company, designers of the VTOL TriFan 600, announced June 5th, 2017 that the company was selected by the Paris Air Lab Programming Committee to exhibit at the Paris Air Show in exhibit space hosted by the French Aerospace Industries Association in coordination with Starburst Accelerator, a major aerospace, defense and security investment fund and consulting firm. The invite to exhibit in Paris is not unexpected for the company, having captured a lion’s share of publicity in recent months after the morphing of the TriFan 600 into a hybrid electric powered aircraft that halved the projected cost of the aircraft in recent months. XTI will be exhibiting from the 19th of June at the show as well as presenting the Trifan 600 to a group of investors, major industry and media representatives during a dedicated session in the afternoon of June 20th at the show.
“We are delighted to be chosen by the Committee to exhibit and are very grateful to our host for this opportunity to present our revolutionary new aircraft, the TriFan 600, said Robert LaBelle, XTI’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to taking full advantage of the exposure this opportunity provides to interact with our industry partners, investors and future customers throughout the show” said LaBelle.
LaBelle continued, “The kind invitation by our host to participate in the Paris Air Show is further validation that the market is recognizing the value proposition of our innovative aircraft, and its patented technology. The TriFan 600 will provide vertical takeoff combined with long-range, the speed and comfort of a business jet, and a quiet, clean state-of-the-art hybrid-electric propulsion system. There’s absolutely nothing comparable to the TriFan 600.” LaBelle added.
The TriFan 600 is poised to be a front runner in the emerging VTOL market, designed for the luxury and corporate market. The company states that the six-seat VTOL aircraft will have the speed, range and comfort of a business jet and the ability to take off and land vertically, like a helicopter. The XTI TriFan 600 is planned to have a cruise speed of 300 miles an hour, and useful range range of over 1,200 miles. XTI states that the Trifan 600 will reach 31,000 feet in just ten minutes and can land in the confines of areas previously off limits to conventional business jets, opening up new markets for this VTOL concept that looks set to storm the market.
