A vertical take-off and landing aircraft has an upwardly-open U-shaped channel extending from a front edge to a rear edge of each of two fixed wings and a thrust providing device, such as a propeller, mounted for tilting at the rear end of the channel. The thrust providing device has an inlet at which low pressure is produced by drawing in air along a path and the thrust providing device is tilted to vary the angle of the air drawing-in path relative to the wing and effect vertical take-off and landing by variably enhancing the lift of the wing.
Apparatus for providing vertical take-off and landing capability for an aircraft having a fuselage and fixed wings each defining a front edge and a rear edge, comprising: an upwardly-open channel extending from the front edge to the rear edge of each of the wings; for each wing, a thrust-providing device having an inlet side at which the thrust providing device produces low pressure, said thrust-providing device drawing air in along a path, said inlet side being positioned within said channel and above said wing at the rear edge of said wing, and means f...
