For takeoff, as the wing generates lift, active front suspension extends to set the take off pitch attitude
Dual Chamber Suspension: 10" of Travel
Easy to Fly
10" of suspension travel cushions landings up to a 4 degree approach path
No Flare Landing
HUD and velocity vector make lining up on the runway and maintaining the approach path to touch down, easy
X-46 during sea trials. Example of a no-flare landing.
Split elevator blends roll control with pitch input for naturally coordinated turns

FIRENZE MAKES FLYING CONVENIENT
FIRENZE: A NEW CATEGORY IN TRANSPORTATION
Around the world, every day, thousands of professionals travel to remote locations far beyond rental cars and Uber drivers. This requires coordination of staged vehicles at the runway and a staffed remote camp to maintain them.
In the absence of staged vehicles, the only alternative is many hours driving hazardous rough roads. In northern Canada, Russia, Alaska, and across the developing world, this is a daily reality.
Firenze changes that. With high clearance, large wheels, long travel suspension, high torque motors, and a massive onboard power supply, wherever professionals need to go, they’ll get there faster with the wheels, wings, and power they need.
Imagine if accessing the freeway was as inconvenient as flying an aircraft. Driving on the freeway would require a freeway-only car. The car would be stored at a specific on-ramp, where it was parked in a special garage. It would require an hour to get to the car, tow it out of the garage, and start it. Exiting the freeway at every off ramp would require parking and renting a 'town-only’ car or hailing a ride, since the freeway-only car couldn't be driven beyond the off ramp. With all the interface time and hassle, it would only make sense to use the freeway for long trips and one exit, which is how aircraft are typically operated now.
With the Firenze, multiple-airport combinations can easily make your trip faster—conveniently, effortlessly, and without the need to tow an aircraft out of the hangar, load and unload baggage, arrange ground transportation, or transfer between vehicles at each airport. Simply drive to the nearest, most convenient airfield and get airborne, then land and drive to your destination.
Managing businesses across many locations? Multiple flights in one day around a metro area or between city combinations could be easy and effortless. A two hour drive in heavy traffic could be an enjoyable 10 minute flight.
What’s more, you can avoid traffic by landing at one airport and departing from another. You’ll never need to battle road congestion to get back to the airport where your aircraft was trapped.
Firenze is the effortless on-ramp to the jet-fast freeway in the sky, with convenient access to a much bigger world.
AIRPORTS ARE EVERYWHERE
FOR INTER CITY TRAVEL, ANY DESTINATION WILL ONLY BE A FEW MILES FROM A PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE AIRPORT.
