CMAU Incorporated proudly presents to you our stock VTOL Aircraft Platform! Almost perfectly balanced, this plane is a precise mirror of itself in front of and behind the cockpit. Capable of flying forwards, backwards, up, and even sideways, this little plane can land anywhere with ease.

Note: Training recommended before flight.

Unfortunately, to make this wonderful plane a VTOL, our engineers had to sacrifice something. So, this plane has a top horizontal speed of 99 m/sec. Horizontal propulsion is two ‘Whiplash’ ramjets, literally allowing this plane to stop mid-air, then fly backwards with equal speed. Vertical propulsion is four ‘Panther’ after burning turbofans, giving you the quick throttle response you need when landing in VTOL mode. In horizontal mode, this plane is very efficient, allowing it considerable range, even with its limited fuel. This first VTOL contained ground-breaking techniques and balancing technology, and allowed our engineers to study VTOLs in more detail; giving us the ability and knowledge to make better, more impressive, harder to fly VTOL-capable craft later on. This craft is still the primary VTOL used in training, and no pilot that is unable to fly this airplane is allowed to fly any other VTOL of ours. Order yours today, and start training!
