With the VBJ® one would be able to take off and land anywhere, whether it’s on a rooftop, a yacht, or a helipad – the possibilities are endless. In fact, Pegasus VBJ® is heralding a new era of point-to-point air travel.

Its state of the art performance is unmatched by helicopters, piston engine planes and any of the tilt-rotor VTOL aircraft currently on market, with a range of 4000km from runway take-off (or 2700km in VTOL) with a 45 min reserve ; and at a cruise speed of 609 Kilometres per hour at 35 000 feet.
