Down the Rabbit Hole with Eviation's Alice

Wowsers.



Check out the skin radiators at https://youtu.be/W0DHhiwvatQ?t=104 and consider the architectural advantage of an ME-262 shark-like shape to the fuselage for headroom in a small cabin.

Props positioned to accelerate the three wake-producing areas, with [high frequency] torque vectoring because landing can be tricky. At https://youtu.be/W0DHhiwvatQ?t=145 the rendering shows two- and three-bladed props.

So what do you think? How will they look with advertising all over them?

Somebody needs to call bill lear, they stole his plane.

I think I will be optimistic/ skeptical until type certified and produced.

The Lear Jet had two turbojets on the fuselage and a T-tail. ....and a round fuselage. I'm more reminded of Scaled Composites.

LEAR FAN. Two intakes on fuselage, I believe a pair PT-6 turbo shaft inside, "Y" tail. The black engineering prototype was across the street from my old job.

Maybe your right, does have that scaled composites look.

I mean, kind of? But also not really?

SC definitely does the non-tubular fuselage thing a lot though... nothing like this either, really.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learjet#Timeline

I looked at the link I provided, there was a major redesign a one point. Isn't there some disadvantage to the V-tail? Maybe compared to Y- or T-tail?

There's airframe and there's power plant. Those skin radiators need a lot of wetted area.
