To some, such a scenario is pure science fiction, but to a consortium of seasoned aviation minds, including those who run Brooksville’s Corporate Jet Solutions, it’s no pie-in-the-sky fantasy.
Located at Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport, Corporate Jet Solutions recently inked a joint-venture agreement with Aerobat Aviation, a California company with plans, someday soon, to launch a manned flying saucer-like aircraft known as Geobat FS-7.
Unmanned prototypes of the aircraft have been made and tested in Brooksville and at Georgia Tech and Auburn University, where wind-tunnel tests were conducted.
