  1. XTI Significantly Pushes Back TriFan 600 Service Entry
    The TriFan 600 service entry will be compromised as it is not expected to enter service in the previously announced timeframe. In fact it has slipped a couple of years and is not anticipated to delivery until 2027 or so. With the view that the aircraft could be an alternative to helicopters and some executive jets, the XTI TriFan 600 holds a potential advantage. The company that will make the aircraft, XTI say it has good interest in the aircraft with approximately 3 billion in 'qualified pre-orders'.
  2. As a refresher to what the XTI TriFan is expected to eventually bring to the table, it is to have a slightly diminished range of 750 miles in VTOL mode (Taking off vertically and landing vertically). If it takes off from a runway like a regular aircraft then the range increases to 850 miles. XTI is anticipating a cruise speed of around 345 mph, and operations as high as 25,000 feet (FL250). Interestingly, the company recently changed CEOs. Michael Hinderberger is the current CEO replacing Robert LaBelle.
