  1. Indian Order For The XTI TriFan 600 Hybrid Electric Jet

    The in-development XTI TriFan 600 Hybrid-Electric jet has gained an Indian order to their growing backlog. Since last year, the company has been adding orders to the backlog and last month XTI announced an order from an Indian client. Arvind Lal, Chairman and Managing Director of Dr. Lal’s Path Labs, placed the milestone order for the $6.5 million TriFan 600, which is expected to enter service in late 2022/early 2023.
  2. Meanwhile, XTI is laying plans for certification. A flight-test program with the U.S. FAA "will take four years, with production in 2022," XTI Vice President of Global Business Development Saleem Zaheer said. Of the more than 60 orders placed for the TriFan 600 to date, about 30 are from customers in the Middle East and Asia, the company said. The TriFan 600, which is designed to be able to carry one pilot and five passengers, would take off and land like a helicopter but cruise at 29,000 feet at 300 knots as fixed-wing aircraft. Range is expected to be 664 nm/1,230 km, and XTI estimates direct operating costs of just $350 per hour. With the initial configuration and engineering analysis complete, XTI is assembling the first 60-percent-scale prototype to fly by September.
