This new plane design is promising shorter travel times and definitely looks like something from a sci-fi movie!

XTI Aircraft Company have announced their plans for the six-seat TriFan 600 aircraft on the crowdfunding website Start Engine.

It combines a helicopter's ability to take off from and land on any helipad-sized flat surface with the speed and mileage range of private jets.

The new design would remove the need for runways and 'airport-to-airport' travel, potentially saving travellers hundreds of hours a year in flight journey times.
