Celera 500L – The innovative design aircraft from Otto Aviation promises new dimension for Business Aircraft.
The Zeppelin shaped 6-seater business aircraft provides significantly lower cost and a dramatically reduced carbon footprint.
The aircraft promises 18 to 25 mpg fuel economy, that cost around $328 per hour for operation, with the range of 4,500 nautical mile on projected Max cruise speed of 460 mph
Celera 500L- push-propeller design avoids creating turbulent airflow across the fuselage, which allows it to outperform in similar category business aircraft
The aircraft is powered by Liquid cooled V12, twin 6-cylinder bank, RED A03 Engine
“The Celera 500L is designed for transcontinental range with operating costs equal to or better than commercial airline ticket pricing on a per passenger basis. This criteria requires extremely low drag across the entire aircraft with a highly fuel efficient propulsion system. To achieve this, extensive use of laminar shapes was used for the wings, fuselage, and tail sections.” .. says OTTO Aviation
The company projected to get FAA certification and start manufacturing in 2023 to 2025.
