Character Profiles - Gadgets - Batplane

Batman once maintained aircraft in his original Batcave, although launching these vehicles so close to Wayne Manor's neighboring estates Threatened to compromise his secret identity. The Dark Knight now "borrows' specially modified jets and helicopters from Wayne Aerospace's business and military contracts. A few very specific craft remain fueled and ready for Bruce Wayne's private Use, no questions asked.

Batplane I and the Bat-Rocket favored Batman's signature look over sleek aerodynamics. Batplane II, a retooled Wayne Aerospace W4 Wraith fighter, married style with substance.

The Third Batplane is a modified Wayne Aviation Slipstream. The $46 Million plane is detailed to resemble a standard midsize corporate jet during takeoffs and landings. This is Stage One.
Stage Two - At cruising altitude (35,000-45,000 ft), telescoping wings retract. Exterior sections of tail and nose-cone envelop cockpit and cabin fuselage for higher altitude pressurization.
Stage Three - Gaining further altitude (45,000-55,000), delta fins in tail and snub winglets elongate to increase efficiency and stability as speeds approach supersonic.
Stage Four - At ceiling altitudes (55,000-60,000 ft), "smart" paint on exterior radar-shielding ceramics responds to dropping air pressure and temperature, camouflaging the Batplane's exterior to stealthy black.
Inside the cockpit avionics include ergonomic "at-a-glance" viewing levels for all electronics and multifunction displays. Breakaway canopy allows for pilot/co-pilot emergency ejection.
