MISSION & VISION

A NEW TYPE OF TRANSPORTATION

In a fast-evolving sector like the one of the personal mobility air vehicles, the mission of the company is to offer a feasible, innovative solution for this type of transportation. The vision that leads there is through the development of new technologies that will be demonstrated to the public with a widely broadcasted new sport series.

A NEW RACE SERIES

The creation of a new sport that, on one hand, fits precisely in the strategy of the FAI (World Air Sports Federation) and, on the other hand, is connected to the top series of car racing, is the key point for the diffusion of the technology among a large number of spectators.

OUR STRATEGY

The strategy envisioned is to design a high performance race vehicle with the best technology available today, but with the provision for implementing new future solutions. It is full electric with a high safety design and can be modified by teams during the championship.

 

THE RACE VEHICLE

High-performance eVTOLs as base race vehicle for the championship.

eVTOL

Highly manoeuvrable

Electric motors with thrust vectoring

High safety design
(crashworthy structure, ballistic parachute, failsafe philosophy)

Anti-collision systems

 

THE RACE

The first ground breaking air race using the safest, fastest and most reliable VTOL technology. The base racing device is created & delivered by us and can be modified & developed by teams to make new technology approaches public. The first air race where pilots can lift themselves in high speed air manoeuvring races to the podium. In the 3rd dimension an overtaking is not limited to left or right but can also be managed over or underneath the competitor to claim technological leadership by becoming world champion.
