Jetoptera VTOL Flies With No Blades

  Unique Bladeless Propulsion System                                   Source:  Jetoptera Concept Aircraft Very Fast, Efficient & Quiet Aircraft Seattle-based aerial mobility company Jetoptera is developing a concept VTOL with bladeless propulsion capable of nearly Mach 1 speeds.  Here are the pertinent facts: Jetoptera is a High Speed Vertical Takeoff and Landing Vehicle (HSVTOL) designed for speeds up to 0.8 Mach or 614 mph That speed is faster than a commercial jet and twice as fast as tiltrotor designs Powered by a highly innovative, bladeless propulsion system Proprietary Fluidic Propulsion System enables the aircraft to vertically take off and land and to accelerate to jet aircraft speeds when in forward flight System combines gas or electric turbine engines and fluidic thrust augmentation that distribute thrust across the aircraft through all phases of the flight & requires a flow of compressed air to function Vehicle has no rotors and no propellers Benefits include usin
