喷气直升机或成富豪新宠

Laura Lorenzetti 2015年09月01日

你可以把它想象成一架全地形飞机,它可以像普通的喷气机那样飞得又快又远,又可以像直升机一样精确地起飞和降落。

    
XTI公司的“喷气直升机”假设图。

    这正是XTI飞机公司的设想。为了将这样一架飞机变成现实,这家位于美国科罗拉多州丹佛市的公司最近发起了一个众筹项目,希望募集到5000万美元的资金,用于研发第一架TriFan 600飞机。

    目前这架飞机仍然处于假设阶段,它理论上最多可搭载6人,机身上有三个巨大的螺旋桨,用于让飞机垂直起飞,并提供前进动力。每架TriFan 600飞机的售价大约将在1000万到1200万美元之间。由此可见,它届时仍将是富豪的专宠。不过该公司认为,这种飞机也可以用于紧急医疗运送或旅游等领域。

    That’s the vision of Denver, Colo.-based XTI Aircraft Company, which has launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring its aerial innovation to life. The company is trying to raise up to $50 million to develop the first TriFan 600.

    The still-hypothetical plane could theoretically seat up to six people. It would have three massive fans that would lift the aircraft off the ground, then rotate to provide forward thrust. Each TriFan 600 would go for between $10 million and $12 million, putting it solely in the domain of the wealthy. Still, the creators also see the aircraft being used for medical evacuations or tourism.

    你至少还有几年的时间来攒钱。据《创业家》杂志报道,假设该公司筹集到足够的资金,并且获得美国联邦航空管理局的审批,它也依然需要多年的研发才能上市。(财富中文网)

    You have some time to start saving your pennies. The plane won’t be on the market for years, Entrepreneurreports, assuming it ever secures funding and receives approval from the Federal Aviation Administration.
