A tiltjet aircraft[1] is similar in concept to a tiltrotor design. Whereas a tiltrotor utilises rotors, the tiltjet employs jet engines with the entire propulsion system being rotated from the from axial to dorsal in order to achieve a transition from hover or vertical flight to horizontal. They are typically fully capable of VTOL operations.
