I was looking at the difference between rotorcraft and powered-lift and every example I saw was a military application (Osprey or Harrier or F35)
The FAA defines powered-lift:
Powered-lift means a heavier-than-air aircraft capable of vertical takeoff, vertical landing, and low speed flight that depends principally on engine-driven lift devices or engine thrust for lift during these flight regimes and on nonrotating airfoil(s) for lift during horizontal flight.
I was wondering if there were any small, personal powered-lift aircraft that one might get their private pilot license in the way people get a ASEL certificate in a 172.
I know there is the AW609, but that is targeted towards the business market with a very specific niche.
