Part blimp, part airplane, the Aeroscraft ML866 aircraft is scheduled for a launch next month at the NBAA 60th Annual Meeting & Convention in Atlanta. Using a combination of both lift and buoyancy, the craft is being built with the intention of it being some sort of flying business center.

Born Rich reports:

The Aeroscraft ML866 offers 120 knots top speed (that’s not much impressive) and over 5,000 square feet of interior compartment. The aircraft is able to take off vertically like a helicopter to reduce the runaway time. One of the Aeroscraft ML866 configurations to be offered is an airborne business center that will be equipped with an automated office, video conferencing facility, a sophisticated communications package, transformable interior, personal state room and a physical conference space.
