The stepping planes were produced by the Black Corporation and were invented somewhere between 2045 and 2052.[1][2]


The plane's main body is a squat cylinder with a small cockpit and couches for four passenger and hull is made of white smooth ceramic material and is marked with the Buddhist-monk logo showing the vehicle's ability to step.[2]

The wings are described as stubby and the tailplane fat.

The cockpit is filled with built-in tablets.
