The tiltrotor is a hybrid aircraft and helicopters.
The tiltrotor — an aircraft with turning propellers that are on takeoff and landing work as lifting, but in horizontal flight — like pulling (in this case the lifting force provided by the wing-type aircraft).
Technology is in the process of development!
Tilt-rotor osprey — a flying machine with rotating screws, which on takeoff and landing work as lifting, but in horizontal flight — like pulling (in this case the lifting force provided by the wing-type aircraft). This type of aircraft is kind of a hybrid of plane and helicopter, capable of vertical takeoff and landing, as well as the ability to carry passengers and cargo over long distances with more than the helicopter speed.
There are several types of convertiplanes. Some when you change the airplane mode turns all of the wing, the other is a gondola with engines and propellers, and the third – only do the screws.
Currently, the U.S. operated a working model of the tiltrotor V-22 Osprey with a flight weight of 27.4 tons and speed of flight in airplane mode 463 km/h in helicopter mode 185 km/h.
– takeoff and landing on a small runway,
– in the air a unique character develops more than the helicopter, the speed and ahead of the helicopter for flight distance
– ideal for areas where impossible to take off from the runway.
– unmanned aerial vehicle,
– equipped with a hybrid power plant, which is expected to provide a flight speed of up to 500 kilometers per hour.
