CIAM flyer (01-2019): VTOL model aircraft - a new class?

After a relatively long absence, VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft are making a comeback, says the latest edition of the CIAM Flyer - available now.

VTOL aircraft require no or only a very short runway for take-off and landing and, unlike copters, once they have taken off vertically can transition into normal flight like an ordinary fixed wing aircraft and transition back for landing.
