Opener Unveils First Ultralight Electric Personal VTOL Aircraft for US - [technology]
05:48 AM EDT - Jul,13 2018 - post a comment

Opener which is partially financed by Google co-founder Larry Page has announced that their BlackFly ultralight electric fixed-wing vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft has passed US certifications. While there is no license required to fly the vehicle, they will require a FAA Private Pilot written examination like a pilot would take and an introductory course. You can check out the specifications here. The things that stood out to me were the amphibious capabilities, 25 mile range, 25 minute charging time, 32 F - 86 F operating temperature and 250 lbs payload limit. It even has an Automatic Return-to-Home button for training purposes.
