A system and method are provided for a short take-off and landing/vertical take-off and landing aircraft that stores required take-off power in the form of primarily an electric fan engine, and secondarily in the form of an internal combustion engine, wherein the combined power of the electric fan and internal combustion engines can cause the STOL/VTOL A/C to take-off in substantially less amount of time and space than other STOL/VTOL A/C, and further wherein the transition from vertical to horizontal thrust is carefully executed to rapidly rise from the...


What is claimed is: 1. A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft, comprising: a tiltable primary engine configured to produce thrust for forward flight and thrust for hovering, said tiltable primary engine being disposed on a center of gravity of said aircraft and vertically tiltable with respect to an aircraft center line; a plurality of electrically-driven fans arranged about a periphery of an airframe of the VTOL aircraft, said plurality of electrically-driven fans consisting of (i) a first fan disposed at a nose of the VTOL aircraft, (ii) a se...
