As per the headline, the Nevada-based aerospace company is shutting down. This comes as shock – specially since two aerospace biggies, Boeing and GE Aviation, were Aerion‘s partners.
What you see here is a private jet in development called Celera 500L from U.S. aerospace company, Otto Aviation. Are you thinking what I am thinking? Like, don’t this weird-looking, almost a blimp-like fuselage, defies the principles of aerodynamics? Apparently, it doesn’t.
With the rapid advancement in vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft, you know it is a matter of time that some is going to propose a VTOL business jet. The Pegasus Vertical Business Jet or VBJ by Johannesburg-based Pegasus Universal Aerospace (no relation to Marvel’s Project PEGASUS) is one such proposition.
Words in the press are, the 45th President has lost his throne. Fret not if you are a loyal supporter with the riches because, besides the mess in America you have him to remember by, you can fly home a piece of the man himself. No. The Air Force One isn’t on sale, neither is …

Every other people: buy TV bundle, white goods bundle. Very rich people: buy private jet and sports car bundle. The latter is exactly what Porsche and aircraft manufacturer Embraer is offering.
We have seen and heard many companies that are in the business of developing flying cars, but only a handful actually carried manned flight. Japan’s SkyDrive Project SD-03 is one of them that recently did so.
We are totally not surprised that Kitty Hawk’s supposed flying car is no longer a thing. The plug has been pulled on that one. Instead, the company is embarking on an electric plane proper which it dubbed Project Heaviside.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just take off and soar the sky like a bird? Sadly, we are no X-Men and the closest a person can get to taking off just like that would be an air vehicle like the Watfly Atlas EVTOL.
The aerospace industry must be feeling the heat of competitions. In addition to “traditional” competitors, aerospace companies now have deal with automakers getting into the business of flying too. The latest to join the short range air superiority race is Japanese automaker, Toyota.
