The Greased Lightning Paradigm Shift
Greased Lightning is a true no compromise solution to the long endurance VTOL paradox, with the aerodynamic efficiency of a conventional fixed wing with full VTOL capability.
Eliminates the requirement for additional ground support equipment like launch catapults and landing catch mechanisms
Propellers designed for a relatively low tip speed resulting in a marked reduction in noise
Endurance of 24 hours in the forward flight mode
Superior Mission Performance!
Greased Lightning Transition
The wings and horizontal stabilizer rotate with fixed motor pods to facilitate vertical flight.
Developed by NASA and now being commercialized by Advanced Aircraft Company!
