California-based aircraft company behind the remarkable Celera 500L, a super low-drag single prop plane that delivers the performance capabilities of a small jet using 1/8th the fuel and costing around 1/6th as much to run per hour.
The Celera 500L is a truly remarkable design. Otto Aviation says its odd shape delivers an astonishing 59% reduction in drag, so it can cruise as fast as a small jet while using 80% less fuel. Now, Otto and ZeroAvia are giving it a clean powertrain.
Otto Aviation claims its bizarre-looking Celera 500L "bullet plane" offers the performance of a small jet using just 1/8th the fuel, for around 1/6th the running costs. The company wants to make private air travel cost as much as an airline ticket.
