THE EVOLUTIVE HYBRID-ELECTRIC
LONG RANGE AAM eV/STOL
AIR VEHICLE PLATFORM
A NEW ERA OF REGIONAL AIR MOBILITY
Welcome to Manta Aircraft, where we believe that travel and essential air operations should not be limited by distance. While aircraft and ground transport offer efficient and convenient options for long and short distances respectively, what about the regional distances in between? Planes are tied to runways while helicopters are expensive to operate and maintain. This is where we come in.
At Manta Aircraft, we provide the basis for many models to better connect regions, open up new possibilities for aerial applications and offer more efficient solutions for existing operations - be it in the field of specialised transport such as human organs, rapid emergency/disaster control & response, infrastructure surveillance or even point-to-need business aviation applications, to name just a few examples of the multifunctional platform's applications.
TAKING OFF LIKE A HELICOPTER
FLYING LIKE AN AIRPLANE
At Manta Aircraft we combine the best of both worlds. Our aircraft, based on a winged design in combination with a very light and powerful hybrid-electric propulsion system, are thus not only optimised for the eVT/STOL lift, but also for the criuse, resulting in very efficient and economical use at ranges of 300-800+ km at high speeds.
THE PLATFORM APPROACH:
MULTIPLE MODELS, HIGHLY ADAPTABLE
A family of hybrid-electric Vertical and Short Take-off and Landing (HeV/STOL) air vehicles. It means that they can take-off and land vertically whenever needed or convenient, but also operate from very short airstrips with considerably higher payload. Their hybrid propulsion gives them higher performance in terms of longer endurance and range, and their airplane-like architecture allows for higher speed and climb characteristics, as well as superior maneuverability in safer flying conditions.
The whole program follows the approach of the typical automotive platform and modularity to easily scale up: It is created as one base foundational technology ranging from an unmanned high-performance drone to the optionally piloted 2-seater and 4+2-seater – or any customized cargo-version of them.
The ANN platform is suitable for a large variety of different applications: from personal mobility to supply missions, as well as for business and commercial aviation operations.
