  1. CTOL CX300 To Be Certified
    Beta Technologies who you may know for their exploits as an eVTOL company with their ALIA 250 aircraft is now looking to provide a CTOL version. CTOL meaning Conventional Takeoff and Landing. This means that it will be utilizing regular airport to airport arrival and departure sequences. To mark the difference between the two the new aircraft will be called the CX300.
  2. Beta intends to still develop and certify this new variant CX300 alongside the ALIA 250. However, the CX300 will be operating under the FAA Part 23 rules for small airplanes. The eVTOL (ALIA 250) though will be certified differently under new rules for powered lift aircraft. There already has been a CX300 aircraft being extensively tested not just for the CTOL endeavour but because the eVTOL, even though it requires vertical takeoff and landing, it spends the majority of its time in forward flight during flights. Towards the end of 2022 the Beta Technologies CTOL aircraft completed its second cross-country mission, flying 762 nautical miles from Plattsburgh, New York, all the way to Louisville, Kentucky. It naturally had to stop multiple times for recharging. The CTOL aircraft exists in testing and Beta Technologies will now actively certify this version as well, perhaps broadening the use-case of the aircraft outside of just being an eVTOL in the realm of the ALIA 250.
