The bullet-shaped plane was first spotted in 2017 at the Southern California Logistics Airport as the world speculated about its unusual design.
Not much was known about the Celera 500L plane until this year’s summer as it was officially revealed to the world with some very fine picture and its website, CNN reports.
According to the company that created it, an offshoot of Otto Laboratories, the plane will be able to run 16 to 25 miles per fuel gallon, a consumption that is cheaper compared to the 2 or 3 miles a jet aircraft run per for same fuel.
The hourly operating cost of the plane is $328 per hour, a price that is also seen as six times cheaper. And its speed is 460 miles per hour.
“Our goal has always been to create a safe and private aircraft that would allow for direct flights in the US at speeds and cost comparable to commercial air travel,” company CEO Bill Otto Jr said.
The cabin is also big enough with 6 foot 2 height and six first-class seats that come with their own peculiar design.
Though the unveiled plane does not come with windows, Otto said that the passenger version of the aircraft will have some.
Before the company can go into public production of the craft, it would need FAA certification, find a manufacturing facility, among other things. It should, however, be noted that the Otto Aviation has completed the first of its funding rounds.
After the production of the 500L, the company looks forward to making 1000L, an aircraft that is better and more affordable to run.
