American secret "bullet plane" first flew into the air


The American experimental aircraft Celera 500L took off in Victorville (California). This was reported by The Drive, suggesting that this was the first flight of a strictly classified "bullet plane", the development of which has been ongoing for 10 years.


The creation of a promising aircraft means the company Otto Aviation. Due to strict secrecy, it is difficult to understand the true purpose of the aircraft. According to one version, it is being developed for business aviation. However, an aircraft can also be part of a program to improve aerodynamic performance and economy of aircraft.

The latter, by the way, in the “bullet” seems to be something of a realm of fantasy. So, according to unconfirmed reports, a promising vehicle will be able to cover a distance of 60 km at an average speed of 740-820 km / h, while spending less than 4 liters of fuel.

As for the technical characteristics of the Celera 500L, it is known that the aircraft is designed according to the classical scheme. Its fuselage in shape resembles a bullet, whence the “nickname” of the aircraft appeared. A turboprop engine with a five-blade pushing screw is located in the rear part, on the surface of which air intakes are brought out. Wing tips slightly raised.

The device received experimental registration under the number N818WM in the US Federal Aviation Administration. But about the flight characteristics of a promising aircraft to this day nothing is known.

      Trump is ours. He will give us the planes.

      Based on everything written above and below, there are no reasonable assumptions, for about six months now, there are not the slightest suggestions to whom this abstract egg cell, no less abstract Trump can vparit !!! ...
      Unless it is still under-communized even when drunk by the Amerzians, a carefully disguised, in my opinion Penzyuk flying saucer ...
      I forgot the exact name, but I remember very well that the author of the invention didn’t sell anything to the Amertsians, and just in case, they ruined the car factory, and communicated all the documents, although they themselves fought against this very communism !! ...
      But there was a disk, and, based on my modest knowledge in aviation, the form there plays no less role than the content !!! ...
      But honestly, unfortunately, I forgot the name!

    Based on the data in the article, this is generally an extremely strange invention, with almost no chance of widespread practical application: if you take into account that for take-off and landing, apparently, this device definitely needs at least some, but an airfield + all corresponding to take-off / landing procedure, why bother flying at a distance of 60km, even if he overcomes it in the air in 5 minutes and 4 liters of fuel? Given all the necessary manipulations for using the aircraft and the total time required for this, the same distance today can be traveled by land on various vehicles on the road or even in general with complete lack of infrastructure for a similar time and at similar costs ... request Helicopters eat more, but also, in my opinion, look more efficient in comparison ...

      ... a promising vehicle will be able to cover distances of up to 60 km at an average speed of 740-820 km / h, while spending less than 4 liters of fuel.

      He spends up to 4 liters to overcome 60 km / h at a speed of about 820 km. And how much fuel the tank of this "bullet" is designed for is currently not known. As, in fact, about many other characteristics.

        Perhaps, but I proceed from what you wrote:

        the device will be able to cover a distance of up to 60 km

        smile - BEFORE it is BEFORE. That is, it will fly 30, 40, 50 or a maximum of 60 km. I didn’t write it, but you.
        It does not say that this unit flies at a speed of 720 to 820 km / h so that the maximum flight is unknown ... no

          What does the maximum fly here, when it comes to profitability?

          The latter, by the way, in the “bullet” seems to be something of a realm of fantasy. So, according to unconfirmed reports, a promising vehicle will be able to cover a distance of up to 60 km at an average speed of 740-820 km / h, while spending less than 4 liters of fuel.

          Everything is very clear here. And I used "DO" quite correctly. 70 or 80 km at 4 liters with a speed of up to 820 km / h it will not fly)

            ... I don’t want to offend you, colleague, but you yourself understood what you wrote now? laughing
            I will no longer argue with you about this, it does not matter, but just read carefully what you yourself are writing. And it is up to you regarding the flight - up to 60 km.

              You made a strange conclusion, colleague. But, each has its own perception of information) I do not know where you saw the "fly" in the description of profitability. And, frankly, who can even suggest that a plane is being developed with a flight speed of 820 km / h at a maximum distance of 60 km)))) Unless, of course, you simply did not look for a reason to "argue".
              Oh well, let's leave the lyrics. I do not intend to justify. The argument is over.

      Don't you think that 60 km is just an example?

        In general, it’s extremely rare for me to think somewhere. I'm used to just perceiving and interpreting information clearly. Neither about examples, nor about what flies, there was nothing further in the article. It WAS written literally:

        ... the device will be able to cover distances of up to 60 km at an average speed of 740-820 km / h, while spending less than 4 liters of fuel.

        And BEFORE there is BEFORE. The author argued with me - argued, and then he took the text and corrected it. Well done. Because I realized that I was really wrong. It happens. Young business. wink The main thing is to understand on time.

          Clarification: the text is corrected, but it was not me who did it wink

    It looks like an economical group taxi. These business jets of our days are only smaller copies of large airliners. Gluttonous and expensive to operate.
