Airborne 05.15.19: Horten HX-2 to OSH!, TriFan 600 Test, Blue Moon

Also: GA ADS-B Rebates, Saab To Open Site, House GA Caucus Launch, EAA Petitions Supreme Court

Horten Aircraft plans to bring its HX-2 flying wing prototype to AirVenture this summer.

HORTEN Aircraft GmbH was founded at the end of 2015 by Sven Lindig, Bernhard Mattlener and Hans Heinen. Meanwhile, Flight Design general aviation and Rotorvox are also part of the aviation brand LIFT Air with headquarters located at the Eisenach-Kindel airfield (EDGE). The name "HORTEN Aircraft GmbH" honors the visionary aircraft designer Dr. Ing. Reimar Horten (1915-1994), who is widely regarded as a pioneer in the field of flying wings. XTI Aircraft Company (XTI) has conducted the first test flights of its 65% scale prototype of the TriFan 600 VTOL aircraft as the company continues to progress on its long-range commercial vertical takeoff airplane. The TriFan 600 prototype completed multiple takeoffs, hover, and landings, which tested and validated the electric motors, battery power system, ducted fan propulsion, flight controls, other electrical systems and instrumentation. Blue Origin announced Blue Moon, its large lunar lander capable of delivering multiple metric tons of payload to the lunar surface based on configuration and mission. The cargo variant revealed last week can carry 3.6 metric tons to the surface. They have also designed a variant of the lander that can stretch to be capable of carrying a 6.5-metric-ton, human-rated ascent stage. Blue says it can meet the Administration's goal of putting Americans on the Moon by 2024. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
