You can’t get better than helicopters that take off horizontally, or airplanes that travel extensive distances at amazing speeds, can you?

Well now you can because an Equity Crowdfunding campaign has been launched, meaning that a private jet helicopter hybrid is possibly on the horizon. The campaign has a target of $50 million to develop this innovative six seater machine, with part of that money going towards the development of the TriFan 600, which would allow the jet to take off completely horizontally  much like it’s helicopter ‘parent’.

Unfortunately, although the machine with be extremely lightweight and therefore be able to travel at speeds that far surpass those of helicopters, they are not intended for civilian use. This hybrid could eventually be used as an alternative to helicopters and used for medical evacuations and could save thousands of lives.

The jet is set to be on sale for between $10 and $12 million and is estimated to take two-and-a-half years to build just the prototype once the funding gets passed and approved. After this it is estimated to take another 6 to 8 years to complete the final product.
