Due to the current high market demand for an aircraft that can take off and land vertically like a helicopter, but that can still go as fast, as high, and as far as a winged aircraft can go, several companies have been proposing various types of aircraft that can do this. However, as all the proposed designs are based on modifications in already in-use technology, we believe none of them provided the ideal solution for this quest, with most development projects being discontinued.
On the contrary, our proposed Hybrid Aircraft is planned to employ an innovative Compact Propeller to lift the aircraft. Our plan is for our proposed breakthrough compact propeller to use an innovative low angle-of-attack propellers' layout that enables providing high disk loading (up to 250 pounds per foot square), paired with high hover lift efficiency (up to 20 pounds per horse power). This would enable positioning the compact propellers in ducts in the central part of the aircraft’s fuselage, which would enable designing the aircraft’s powertrain with less moving parts, when compared to a conventional helicopter’s powertrain, which we believe will make it cheaper to produce and maintain, and less prone to accidents due to component failure. We project that this will also allow for operating the aircraft at relatively higher speeds and altitudes, while avoiding the adverse effect of any surrounding wind that maybe encountered during the flight.
The Company is currently in the research and development stage. See the "What We Have Done so Far" section below for more information.
We expect that if we are able to meet our goals, our Technology may provide significant competitive advantages to helicopter and business aircraft manufacturers to employ in their production lines, and for potential customers to buy for their fleets.
