Civilian Tilt-Rotor Aircraft – YES PLEASE

Throw a little hot-rod red in there.

Throw a little hot-rod red in there.

I admit, ever since I saw the V-22 Osprey, I loved it. It just LOOKS cool, and I’m a military geek. That tech (they fixed it finally, honest!) is now making it’s way to the civilian airspace with the Bell 609.

Looking and flying like a smaller cousin of the military V22 Osprey, also a Bell vehicle, the 609 will undoubtedly please millionaire business people since it can perform all the rooftop-landing duties of a normal helicopter, but flies twice as fast and can fly 9 passengers up to 25,000 feet altitude.

Just so you know, all of the copious (*sigh*) ad revenue I generate is going in a fund to buy one of these (along with the money to pay the pilot). After I buy Sabres tickets for this year, of course.
