FlyNow Aviation's Single-Seater Airtaxi


Safe, Efficient, Affordable Urban Air Mobility

FlyNow Aviation presents their vision of Urban Air Mobility: a single-seater Airtaxi that is automatically piloted and operated, with an aircraft design that ensures efficient operability, resulting in an excellent business case, outstanding customer value, and affordability for all.

The single-seater Airtaxi has a maximum takeoff weight of 360 kg, a flying time of 30 minutes, a maximum speed of 130 km/h, and a range of about 50 km. Two fixed-pitch rotorblades, eight electric motors, and batteries power the aircraft.

Future models will run on hydrogen electricity.However, with an all-electric engine, each rotorblade may adjust its RPM for directional control. Additionally, the entire rotor assembly can be tilted, allowing thrust vectoring to control the aircraft.

We make no sacrifices on safety, as is typical in commercial aircraft. That's why every vital system is redundant. Each rotor is powered by its own electric motor, which is comprised of four independent units. In other words, a four-pronged "safety net" against potential motor failure.

If one of the motor segments fails, the remaining three will take its place, and the flight behavior will stay unchanged due to our coaxial design of two counter rotating rotors functioning along a single main center line.

The drones are also well-protected against collisions: if their flight path crosses that of a rescue helicopter, they simply remain still in the air for a period. Larger birds often take evasive action at cruising speeds of 130km/h, but our sensor technology detects them as capable of flying an evasive move.
