Unlike the common flight concepts (multicopters, airplanes and mixed concepts), which involve purely dynamical uplift, our h-aero® additionally makes use of the static uplift generated from an elliptic helium bubble. Therefor h-aero® is as energy efficient as a Zeppelin or a balloon while remaining as agile as multicopters or airplanes. The VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) capability eliminates the need for a runway infrastructure. The flight system is able to achieve higher cruising speeds than helicopters. By using solar energy as a regenerative energy source, the autonomous 24h non-stop flight will already be accessible in 2018.
