The herein invention is presenting a lift generating method based on a semi-open fluid jet flowing in a closed circuit around a lifting airfoil. A VTOL aircraft with maximized payload room and car-like shape is the preferred embodiment of the invention. The herein aircraft uses no wings, exposed propellers, hot gas jets or other high injury risk means for propulsion and lift, and it can be driven by ordinary skilled people. Furthermore the aircraft has a small footprint and can land, take off and even cruise on water in one of the preferred embodiments.
1. A system for a vehicle comprising: a lifting foil positioned within a containment body, the containment body having a longitudinal axis extending from a first end to a second end;a first flow path having a first fixed height positioned between the lifting foil and an upper surface of the containment body;a second flow path having a second fixed height positioned between the lifting foil and a lower surface of the containment body, the first fixed height being less than the second fixed height;a safety cover forming the upper surface of the containment...
