INTRODUCING A WHITE WINGED STALLION - THE PEGASUS VTOL AIRCRAFT

The Goliath Series limited to not just stunning yacht designs has released another Steve Kozloff design concept - PEGASUS

The Pegasus aircraft is unique in that it can take off and land both conventionally and vertically offering a much wider range of destinations.

The Pegasus has very short field capability in conventional flight mode even with its high wing loading. The 7,500 lbs. of thrust developed from the two 132” propellers offer 1 g+ acceleration.  This makes it possible to achieve flying speed within 5 seconds while only using 400 ft. of runway.  Also, landing rollout would be very short due to the full reversing propellers.

Vertical takeoff mode can be very practical in many scenarios.  However, in some situations, such as dusty dirt fields, powdered snow-covered fields, and proximity of light aircraft; would make vertical landing or takeoff impractical and not appreciated.

Pegasus features a unique turbine electric power system.  The single pt6a67r turbine engine powers a generator and the generator powers the two electric motors on the wings. This system makes the power transmission from the engine to the rotor less complicated and increases reliability by avoiding the need for a combining transmission, drive shafts, and rotor transmissions.
