  • TriFan render front

A revolutionary configuration

  • XTI’s innovative development of proven technologies creates a revolutionary configuration. The TriFan 600 is both elegant and highly functional. It is visually distinguished by a sleek exterior, and three ducted fans in place of large diameter helicopter rotors. The two ducted fans in the wings pivot to enable the aircraft to transition from hover to forward flight and back again for landing.

  • Our Cleantech design results in sweeping benefits - 40% lower CO2 emissions, 50% lower operating costs, and ~50% lower noise compared to similar aircraft or helicopters. And as batteries and hydrogen technologies evolve, we will be ready to incorporate the best solution to achieve our goal of ZERO EMISSIONS without compromising performance.

  • Extended range

    On vertical takeoff, the TriFan 600 has a range of 670nm - that's 2x helicopter range, and 6x the range of most battery-only VTOL aircraft under development

    • Manhattan
    • Dallas
    • San Francisco

    If a conventional takeoff is used, the range is almost doubled to 1200nm

    If a conventional takeoff is used, the range is almost doubled to 1200nm
