Urban Aeronautics

This Web site introduces the X-Hawk, "a vehicle that has the [vertical takeoff and landing] capability of a helicopter, but without the exposed rotors that make it dangerous or impossible for helicopters to maneuver in complex urban and natural environments." It has received considerable attention from the media, as is apparent from the press clippings provided online. The Film and Downloads section has a technical document that was presented to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The five-page report describes the development of the X-Hawk, provides details and specifications of its design, and compares it to historic efforts to make a flying car. Additional material on the X-Hawk can be found in the Technical Information section.
