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.

 
 

CHARACTERISTICS

HYBRID PROPULSION SYSTEM

8 ELECTRIC
DUCTED FANS

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.

FLYING MODE

The canard configuration allows a high efficiency of flight in airplane mode, to the benefit of range and speed.

BENEFITS

A real, meaningful solution for regional and inter-regional air mobility.

LONG ENDURANCE & RANGE

600+ km

The hybrid propulsion system allows an outstanding range for regional and inter city flights without several recharging stops

HIGH CRUISING SPEED

300+ kmh

The high cruising speed enables a fast commuting on medium and long distances

VERY LIMITED INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS

Only gas/(eco)fuel

No ground infrastructure needed: Short ground time and high availability

HIGH MANOEUVRABILITY

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

 

SAFETY

Our models are equipped as standard with suitable fail-safe systems to offer pilots the highest possible safety in case of an unexpected issue.

 

CUSTOMIZATION

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.

ON BOARD SYSTEMS

Flexibility of configuration to adapt to different missions / operators.

INTERIOR

Individual equipment and design according to your wishes and needs.

EXTERIOR

Color, pattern, graphics or foils can be customized on request.
