A puddle-jumper

Puddle-jumpers are twin-engined,[1] small terran thirty-seater civilian transports that ferry passengers from the surface of a planet to subsequent transport in space. Padded seats are provided to protect the passengers from the intense G-forces of escape velocity[2]—said passengers board up an extendable side-ramp, though puddle-jumpers also possess rear hatches.[1]

They possess VTOL abilities.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Puddle jumper" is a colloquial term for a light passenger plane incapable of flying long distances without refueling.
