                        From sketch to reality

                        In less than two years, Vahana went from a sketch on a napkin to a full-scale flying aircraft. Today, the demonstrator is currently undergoing extensive flight testing to check flight controls, navigation, failure detection and mitigation, as well as noise. In 2018, Vahana successfully completed its first full-scale flight test.

                        Up to four times faster than cars

                        Vahana uses eight electric motors and a tandem tilt-wing configuration that converts between rotor-borne vertical and wing-borne forward flight. This configuration enables Vahana to achieve both vertical take-off and landing as well as cross-city flight range on battery power alone. Its cruise speed is 100 knots (190 Km/h), enabling trip times that are two to four times faster than cars. The vehicle is self-piloted, which is enabled by its onboard detect-and-avoid systems that can identify both air and ground hazards.
