A VTOL/STOL aircraft of simple design and construction. The aircraft has a central semi-venturi shaped airfoil surface defining a channel integral to the fuselage, a canard system and a horizontal stabilizer system at the respective ends of the channel, and a propulsion unit for accelerating airflow through the channel to achieve stable and easily maneuverable flight.
An aircraft comprising: a central semi-venturi shaped airfoil surface adapted to function as the primary lift generating surface for said aircraft; said airfoil surface defining a channel having a front end and a rear end and having a varying cross-sectional opening along its length; the cross-sectional opening at the point of smallest opening in the interior of said channel being of a generally semi-circular shape; the lower surface of said channel providing a substantially flat lifting surface; a canard system connected to each side of the upper periph...
