President Donald Trump Is Selling His Personal Helicopter
Donald Trump may have lost the U.S. Election but he’s also selling off one of his luxury helicopters. The Sikorsky S76-B is reported to have been used for years by the tycoon. But not since he became president when Presidential Chopper, Marine One, became at his disposal. Canada-based aircraft trading experts Aero asset have listed the chopper, along with U.S. Company Jet Edge partners.

Is this the future of business jets? South African aircraft manufacturer Pegasus Universal Aerospace has developed Pegasus Vertical Business Jet (VBJ) a lightweight hybrid passenger aircraft with vertical take-off and landing capabilities allowing to land almost anywhere. Thanks to its cool-air fan technology, it’s even safe to land on grass or on wooden decks. It's ability to landing on a multitude of surfaces eliminates the need to travel to and from an airport heavily reducing travel time for passengers. At first glance, the Pegasus VBJ looks like a typical small-size private jet for the more experienced eyes, they may notice a difference - the shape of the wings. The jet has a traditional propulsion system that allows it to take off and land on conventional runways and fly like a regular airplane but its vertical thrusters integrated into the wings achieve the necessary lift so that it can land and take off vertically. The Pegasus VBJ has a capacity for a maximum of 7 passengers.
