FanWing: First Personal Aircraft Propelled By Fans



ultralight aircraft
The FangWing aircraft is the first manned personal jet that uses large rotation fans embedded in its wings for lift and propulsion. Inside of the wings are actually long cylindrical turbines, rotated by engines forcing air over the top of the wing for the lift and forwarding move. This quiet, cheap and easy to navigate design allows nearly vertical lift and at the same time has efficiency of traditional airplanes. The first human sized FanWing aircraft will have a “first hop” in January 2013, than test flights throughout June followed by a first public demo at the Oshkosh EAA AirVenture event in July, 2013.
