The present invention provides a single seat aircraft having the capabilities of vertical takeoff, landing and hovering operations utilizing the X-Wing as a conventional helicopter rotating wing. After transition to forward flight following takeoff, the rotating wing is stopped and becomes a fixed wing of “X”configuration. The aircraft utilizes two engines within the fuselage, one engine being positioned vertically above the other along the longitudinal axis of the aircraft, the particular arrangement of engines allowing aircraft size and weight to be su...
In an X-wing helicopter aircraft, a fuselage defining a longitudinal axis of said aircraft, a rotor assembly mounted on said fuselage for rotation at speeds below a predetermined value during helicopter phase operations and adpated to be stopped above said value to provide fixed X-wing airfoil, supplemental fixed wings attached to the fuselage, first, upper and second, lower jet engines mounted vertically one above the other and aligned vertically with respect to the longitudinal axis of the fuselage to provide symmetric and redundant flight control func...
