XTI Aircraft’s vision is to transform business aviation for a more efficient and sustainable future. The TriFan 200 will combine the performance of a fixed-wing business aircraft with the vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capability of a helicopter, delivering the convenience of point-to-point air cargo travel. XTI estimates that the TriFan 200 will have a maximum payload of 500 lb (227 kg) and have a maximum range of 200 nm (370 km).

XTI is targeting the existing turbine business aircraft and rotorcraft markets, and the emerging Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market. The TriFan 200 air cargo hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft is specifically differentiated from the hundreds of eVTOL (electric VTOL) aircraft under development by its significantly payload, range, and speed. The fixed-wing air cargo airplane accommodates its 500 lb (227 kg) payload and is expected to conduct VTOL operations using existing infrastructure including over 5,000 existing helipads in the U.S. alone, as well as driveways, back yards, job sites, private landing pads, remote locations — wherever it’s safe and legal. Additionally, by rotating its front fans to intermediate or fully forward positions, it can use any runway available to increase payload and range. The aircraft is designed to use all three ducted fans for VTOL operations, then transition to forward flight using only the front fans.
