THE ANN FAMILY
In our vision, the first demand of eVTOLs for UAM/AAM operations will comprise one- to five-seat types. In parallel, Personal Regional Mobility will have similar specifications, but these can be better exploited by means of Hybrid-electric Vertical and Short Take-off and Landing (HeV/STOL) types. These aircraft can take-off and land vertically when needed, but also operate from very short airstrips (as short as three vertical landing pads in a row) with considerably higher payload. In practice, it can take off and land vertically like a helicopter, and fly horizontally like an airplane.
Their hybrid propulsion allows higher performance in terms of longer endurance and range (recharging batteries enroute), fed with eco-fuel and needing a very limited infrastructure. Their airplane-like airframe allows them higher speed and climb performance in safer flying conditions, and the very few embedded “project unknowns” make their certification process quicker and easier, expediting time to market.
HYBRID PROPULSION SYSTEM
FULL COMPOSITE STRUCTURE
COCKPIT WITH WIDE PILOTS' VIEW
FLY-BY-WIRE - FULL ELECTRIC CONTROL SYSTEM
EASY TO USE HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI)
VERTICAL TAKE OFF & LANDING
Our models can take off and land vertically and therefore require very little space - an existing helipad or half a tennis court is perfectly sufficient.
SHORT TAKE OFF & LANDING
Our models can alternatively act as very short take off and landing, which allows a higher payload for the flight or mission.
The canard configuration allows a high efficiency of flight in airplane mode, to the benefit of range and speed.
A real, meaningful solution for regional and inter-regional air mobility.
LONG ENDURANCE & RANGE
The hybrid propulsion system allows an outstanding range for regional and inter city flights without several recharging stops
HIGH CRUISING SPEED
The high cruising speed enables a fast commuting on medium and long distances
VERY LIMITED INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS
No ground infrastructure needed: Short ground time and high availability
Mix of airplane and VTOL characteristics
Exceptional maneuvering capabilities: hover in midair; exceptional pitch, roll and yaw rates performance
AFFORDABLE OPERATING COST
Much lower than for helicopters
Total cost of ownership much lower than the one of the helicopters
EASY TO DEPLOY
It fits in a road trailer towed
by a car.
Modular design allows quick disassembly and assembly for transportation and repair: Wing, Canard, Fuselage, Power Pack Unit
Our models are equipped as standard with suitable fail-safe systems to offer pilots the highest possible safety in case of an unexpected issue.
Our aircraft platform is flexible in production. Based on the needs of our customers we can individually consider any wishes regarding onboard systems, interior and exterior.
