Aircraft X-Plane Can Be Takeoff Vertically

Aircraft X-Plane Can Be Takeoff Vertically - In General, planes can take off or take off horizontally then can fly horizontally as well, and also landed horizontally. This contrasts with the helicopters that are capable of taking off vertically. An agency of the U.S. Department of Defense, which is responsible for the development of the technology for military (DARPA), has chosen Aurora Flight Sciences to create new technology aircraft.

The aircraft named "X-Plane" is an unmanned aircraft that will take off and land vertically. DARPA gives Aurora contract for second phase of experimental aircraft with the ability to take off and land vertically or VTOL called X-Plane. His own company has announced the project since March 3.

According to a statement from the company, the Aurora itself has a design team called LightningStrike, while for the unmanned aircraft X-Plane 1107c turboshaft engines equipped with Rolls-Royce AE which will be a magnitude of three Honeywell generator.

Based on that agreement, Aurora will develop a technology demonstrator can fly 50 percent faster than a VTOL aircraft. Aurora will conduct a test flight of a demonstrator technology around the year 2018.
