Three years ago, there was talk of a bullet plane in the works. All the details were confidential and the whole thing was under wraps. Now, the time has finally come to unveil the Celera 500L bullet plane with the most sleek and captivating design you've seen. 

So far, it has been reported that the aircraft is a jet-speed private plane that is claimed to fit 6 people in comfortable first class seats. The aircraft seems to be environmentally friendly, consuming only an eight of a normal jet plane. The aircraft was created under the company Otto Aviation. They promise a significant cut in the costs of hourly operations compared to jets, a 4,500 nautical mile range, and a cabin height of 6'2". 

Otto Aviation, founded in 2008 and a subsidiary of Otto Laboratories, has had 31 successful test runs of the bullet plane. Bill Otto, The company's CEO, told CNN Travel that "our goal has always been to create a safe and private aircraft that would allow for direct flights in the US at speeds and cost comparable to commercial air travel," he said. 

Their website claims that they have plans to get FAA certification and start making its first commercial deliveries between 2023-2025.
