FusionFlight: Unlocking the Full Potential of Microturbine Tech
Welcome to the future - FusionFlight builds machines powered by microturbine technology. These machines will allows us to use electrical energy and transport material through the air in ways not previously imagined.

Benefits of Microturbine Technology.
ULTRA HIGH RPM
Simply put, the microturbine is a scaled-down jet-engine. It is based on the ordinary turbine-cycle engine which is known to have the highest power-density from all air-breathing engines. The primary advantage of the microturbine to the larger engines is that the microturbine rotates much faster, at speeds of up to 130,000RPM which allows it to produce a lot of power in a very small volume.
Microturbine engines rely on a centrifugal compressor to feed air into the combustion chamber. The compressor sits inside the engine and therefore minimizes the overall size of the machine. Furthermore, the compressor acts to increase the pressure of the air, allowing the engine to start and operate at high-altitude and be less susceptible to winds and inclement weather.
Turbine-based machines can use stable heavy fuels like Kerosene, Jet-A, and Diesel - a type of fuel that is readily available almost anywhere in the world. Kerosene-based fuel does not require a complex storage system, is quick to refuel, and has 40-times the energy-density of Lithium-based batteries. Therefore, machines powered by such fuel are significantly more capable than their electrical counter-parts.
