The craft is capable of eVTOL or electric vertical take-off and landing, allowing it to make use of existing airport and helipad infrastructure.

There are a total of 12 props. Six can be tilted between hovering and fixed-wing flight modes. The other six are fixed and only used during hovering and when transitioning.

That's not a huge operation range, but enough to get you from San Francisco to San Jose in about 17 minutes.
