We’re creating an entirely new aircraft. site
In the heart of Silicon Valley, at the intersection of aerodynamics, autonomy, and electric propulsion — we’re changing personal aviation.
WORKING AND LEARNING
With simulations and prototypes, CAD and carbon fiber, we’re designing, building, and testing better ways to get from A to B.
WE ARE HIRING
We’re always looking for creative people who can make the impossible happen.

Green Transportation provides pictures and quote the following from their patent. post
A safe, quiet, easy to control, efficient, and compact aircraft configuration is enabled through the combination of multiple vertical lift rotors, tandem wings, and forward thrust propellers.
The vertical lift rotors, in combination with a front and rear wing, permits a balancing of the center of lift with the center of gravity for both vertical and horizontal flight. This wing and multiple rotor system has the ability to tolerate a relatively large variation of the payload weight for hover, transition, or cruise flight while also providing vertical thrust redundancy.
The propulsion system uses multiple lift rotors and forward thrust propellers of a small enough size to be shielded from potential blade strike and provide increased perceived and real safety to the passengers. Using multiple independent rotors provides redundancy and the elimination of single point failure modes that can make the vehicle non-operable in flight.
