Pegasus Vertical Business Jet (VBJ®)
The Pegasus Vertical Business Jet (VBJ®) (Pegasus VBJ1) will be the first airplane to provide true business jet performance coupled with helicopter convenience. The VBJ® will make point to point travel feasible with multiple innovations that make the airplane safe and easy to fly, even for newly qualified PPL pilots, with a type rating of course. These include non flight critical peripheral structures, automated handling and enhanced spherical vision systems.
Targeting government operations, companies, VIP’s, medical evacuation, anti-poaching, offshore & resource development, as well as A-list business executives, politicians and celebrities, Pegasus One VBJ® is about to change how the world’s elite travel and businesses operate. Designed with the capability to land on any surface, including dry grass or gravel, the Pegasus VBJ1 will also possess built up area, helipad and yacht friendly characteristics.
No other executive jet
will offer such a potent mix of convenience, speed and luxury.
With this plane one would be able to take off and land anywhere, whether it’s on a rooftop, a yacht, or a helipad – the possibilities are endless. Thanks to its cool-air fan technology, it’s even safe to land on grass or on wooden decks. In fact, Pegasus VBJ1 is heralding in a new era of point-to-point air travel.
Its state of the art performance is unmatched by helicopters, piston engine planes and any of the tilt-rotor VTOL airplanes currently on market. With a range of 4400km from runway take-off (or 2124km in VTOL); and at a cruise speed of 796 Kilometres per hour it’s capable of up to six and a half hours flying time from runway and approximately three hours flying time from VTOL at 35 000 feet.
The Pegasus VBJ1 has already had it’s South African Patents granted RSA 2017/01274, With Patents pending in the USA 15/327,237 and EU15771708.3
Fuel Savings – Our Pegasus VBJ1 is an efficient business jet that has a fuel burn of 309 litres per hour. Fuel savings influences the overall costs of owning the Pegasus VBJ1. A business jet with a similar range equates to a 60% fuel saving.
Lower CO2 and NOx Emissions:
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is produced as a result of fuel consumption. Reduced fuel consumption on the Pegasus VBJ1 means less fuel consumption, and subsequently less CO2 emissions.
The Pegasus VBJ1 is made primarily of carbon fibre composite materials, each piece of the business jet is crafted to pin point accuracy resulting in less material wastage.
Pegasus VBJ1 reduces the impact of noise for communities surrounding airports and built up areas. The business jet can achieve these affect as it does not make use of rotor tip vortices.
Step inside, and the Pegasus VBJ1 wraps its eight passengers in plush, ultra-modern trimmings. Each of the high-back leather massage seats has extended personal space (both wider and stand up height) and all the amenities expected from VIP air travel.
Arrive at your destination relaxed and comfortable. With full climate control and electronic blinds which contribute to a conducive environment. Enjoy full business connectivity and use the Pegasus VBJ1 as your mobile office to impress any prospective business partner.
When compared to competitors, Pegasus’s cross section has a notably wider and higher space ratio creating more space and comfort to move around the business jet.
Composite construction allows for larger window cut outs which creates a light airy feel to the cabin.
Pegasus VBJ1 boast ambient light setting to suit your mood. Options of star light settings allow passengers to feel pampered and in control of their environment.
Boasting safety and reliability standards that set a new benchmark in aeronautics, some of its other world-first specifications include potential low level ballistic arrestor systems and automated control systems. This technology helps reduce pilot workload and also makes the plane more accessible to pilots with less experience.
Pegasus when compared to the efficiency and purpose of a helicopter supecedes this mode of transport by having a benefit of no vibration in the cabin as a helicopter would. This means more productive meeting or conference call time in travel. Pegasus VBJ1 allows for a lot more space inside and more luxury. With so much more less noise as a helicopter, no headphones would be required. With a smoother flight and greater range Pegasus VBJ1 would be beneficial in the “Golden Hour” in medical evacuations.
