  • First ever civilian helicopter-plane hybrid is coming next year

    (CNN) They're called tilt-rotor aircraft. They hover like helicopters -- but they fly faster and farther -- like airplanes. The military has flown them for years.
    Now -- for the first time -- a production model is on track to be approved for civilian roles such as emergency medivac flights, search-and-rescue operations and executive travel.
    Billionaire and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly has said he wants one. An executive like Bloomberg could board a tilt-rotor near his home and fly at speeds higher than 300 mph to a meeting a thousand miles away. About three hours later, it could land on a helipad at the meeting location.
    No airports required.

      They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.
