The FlightCoach is a small aircraft capable of taking off and landing on very short runways directly within city centres. For example, on a field that would be equivalent to the size of a football stadium or a supermarket car park.
The 48-seater aircraft behaves, as its name suggests, as a kind of intercity bus. This STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) concept is not new, previously used by its most illustrious predecessors, the Breguet 940, 941 and then 942.
This idea has been refreshed by the Flight-Alternatives team which integrates the high-lift propellers into a new regional aircraft concept. This new concept will be presented in September 2017.
