After capturing the imagination of the public with its TriFan 600 vertical takeoff airplane, XTI Aircraft Company (XTI) is accelerating its development program and redoubling efforts to translate excitement about the aircraft into $3 million in actual investments.

The $3 million milestone is essential to fund important next steps in an accelerated development program that includes flying a 65 percent subscale piloted technology demonstrator of the TriFan 600 within two years. "The move from a full-scale flying prototype to this subscale will trim a year from the development schedule," said XTI's Chief Engineer Dr. Dennis Olcott. "It will reduce cost and accelerate the return on equity to shareholders without compromising technical development or performance."

Brody added that all current and future shareholders will have the ability to buy and sell XTI shares, valued at $1 per share in the current offering, on a public market. This ongoing investment opportunity is not only open to those who had signed up and expressed interest in investing in XTI previously, but to all investors around the globe.  Shares may be purchased at:www.startengine.com/startup/xti 

By applying existing technologies in a revolutionary new configuration, the TriFan 600 airplane combines the speed, range and comfort of a business jet with the ability to take off and land like a helicopter.
