The SKYCRUISER is a vertical take-off and landing hybrid aircraft, the propulsion will be generated by two components. A shell filled with helium, like an airship, takes over 95% of the load capacity, the aircraft is still slightly heavier than air. The remaining buoyancy is generated by four or six electric motors with propellers on the underside, which also provides the SKYCRUISER with great maneuverability. There are two jacket screws at the rear, the controls for rolling, pitching and yaw occurs through the propellers. The SKYCRUISER is designed in different sizes. The version for passenger transportation has a length of 48 m and can accommodate 10 people or a payload of 900 kg transport at a speed of approx. 140 km/h.
The MX 18 Silhouette is an electrically operated, vertically taking off and landing aircraft for the transport of people and goods. Wings are used as buoyancy in addition to the rotors used during horizontal flight to save energy and for flight stabilisation. When starting vertically, the horizontal alignment of all three engines generates lift and the aircraft takes off. By gradually tilting the two front rotors propulsion is generated as in a twin-engine aircraft. The wing body construction maximizes the buoyancy properties and strengthens the structure of the construction. The inside rotors minimize the risk of accidents when taking off and landing.
We are currently developing the MX 18 Silhouette in three different dimensions to optimally meet specific requirements:
Unmanned Wingspan 4,5 m
Two-seater Wingspan 10,5 m
Nine-seater Wingspan 17 m
