NASA’s Single-Crewed Electric Stealth Plane


NASA has unveiled details about its one-man ‘Puffin’ that is powered by electric motors.
The Puffin is created as a stealth plane for a single pilot to be transported in it. It reminds me to a some kind of jet pack with a pilot cockpit.
NASA announced that this little aircraft can reach a speed of 240 km/h. Its range is about 80 km and it can go up to 9 kilometers in height. This aircraft weights about 180 kilograms, including lithium phosphate batteries.
