Frequently Asked Questions

If you have other questions not mentioned here, please contact us.

  • Can I land the TriFan at any helipad that already exists?

    Yes. If it’s safe and legal, and you have the right access to a particular helipad. The size of any one of thousands of typical helipads will accommodate the TriFan 600. In addition, the TriFan 600 can take off or land at any clear, helipad-sized paved surface.

  • Can I use the TriFan 600 at smaller general aviation airports unavailable to other jets?

    Yes. Unlike other jets, the TriFan 600 is not limited by runway length, clear landing approaches, and the sophistication of the electronic landing aids that serve them. The TriFan 600 is both VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) capable and STOL (short takeoff and landing) capable. Because it can take off and land from any paved general aviation airport – with or without use of a runway — TriFan 600’s operational versatility makes it uniquely possible to utilize any one of the thousands of smaller airports worldwide with runways otherwise unavailable to other business jets.

  • How safe is this aircraft?

    The TriFan 600 is exceptionally versatile and offers unparalleled freedom to land with or without a runway, depending on operational conditions. It will be certified for IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) operations in inclement weather, including known icing. It will also be equipped with advanced safety features such as sophisticated autopilot/computerized controls for takeoff and landing, collision avoidance technologies, state-of-the-art avionics, and a whole-aircraft ballistic parachute.

  • How is the TriFan 600 different from the competition and other VTOL aircraft projects?

    A significant differentiator between the TriFan and other VTOL aircraft under development is our range and speed. We can go over 700 miles/1200 km helipad-to-helipad (Wall Street Heliport to downtown Chicago heliport), and 1300 miles/2200 km if a short runway is available (New York to Dallas). That’s great versatility! Even the best all-electric VTOL aircraft being built for UAM (short-range Urban Air Mobility) or for regional flights can only go a maximum of 200 miles/300 km due to battery limitations.

  • What is the stock price?

    Since the company is not currently listed on any public stock exchange, share price is determined based on several factors and is subject to change. XTI does not publicize valuation of the company or the share price that's involved in our agreements with private investors.

  • What do you think the final stock price will be?

    The company is continuing to grow and evaluate various strategies to achieve liquidity for all shareholders. Because there are so many factors to consider, we do not have the ability to predict the future value of our shares.

  • Have you flown your prototype?

    We have successfully hovered our 65% scale prototype numerous times. During the pandemic our testing program has been delayed. We are concurrently continuing development of the company’s first full-scale piloted prototype.

  • What progress have you made recently?

    These are some of the milestones that XTI Aircraft Company has accomplished recently:

    • Developed and tested (multiple hover flights) our 65% scale prototype

    • Expanded our executive team and technical expertise

    • Secured over 200 firm orders and pre-sales for the TriFan

    • Received patents in U.S., Canada, China, Japan, with patents pending in other countries

    • Entered into key supplier partnerships

    • We’ve partnered with VerdeGo Aero to design an autonomous cargo variant of the TriFan
