A new batch of engines for ELAVIA is on the way!
Now the company is actively preparing for the start of testing, the delivery of a new batch of engines is expected. ELAVIA is on the threshold of the final tests before the flight of a full-size prototype. Very soon we will please you with news !
$1.5 trillion: Morgan Stanley Predicts VTOL Market Volume by the year 2040
“As for the economics, the market of flying cars, according to the forecast of Morgan Stanley Bank, may reach $ 1.5 trillion by 2040, and according to more optimistic forecasts – even $ 2.9 trillion,” Luxoft’s blog reports. ELAVIA estimates the over-water flight market at 4% of the total market = $50 billion. We intend to enter this market among the first, confidently taking a leading position for the long term.
Flying cars: what will be the transport of the future. Podcast with Igor Lapin, head of ELAVIA
Igor Lapin became a guest of the podcast “Coming soon”. And he told the presenter Andrey Konyaev about the prospects of the VTOL market, about the stage at which the ELAVIA project is at, as well as about the technical capabilities of aircraft.
Dashboard development completed
A graphical interface has been developed taking into account the specifics of interaction in conditions of possible shaking and vibration. The output of diagnostic information, input of flight data, emergency indication has been debugged on the model of the on-board network. The primary test of the code was carried out according to the do-178 methods.
Are we ready for a changed world?
ELAVIA presents a virtual exhibit at the Open Innovation 2020 conference. See you at the conference on October 19–21 – Moscow International Forum for Innovative Development 2020 are open for you online!
The full-scale prototype of the ELAVIA f1 is almost ready
We proceed to the final assembly, immediately after which flight tests and certification will be made. Stay tuned!
Air Taxi for a city
This year there has been a marked increase in interest flying automotive transport and air taxis.The reason is the existence of an announced series of legislative provisions for transport of this nature, put forward by a group of entrepreneurs, including prominent financiers, along with accelerated development in the electromotive and alternative energy fields, with advances in capacity of batteries and efficiency in electric motors. This means taking into account the fact that light aviation – 89% of all civil aviation aerial trials 87% of all flights are carried out by light aviation, with flying automotive transport and air taxis falling into this category. Only the USA has an annual volume of tax reduction in this field amounting to $4 bn, with a yearly turnover of $50 bn steady growth. This involves a substantial, though somewhat conservative market, which has naturally provided a fresh look at reinvention in aircraft. The ELAVIA company has developed a secure civil air taxi through structural adaptation, enabling the aircraft to withstand a host of successive breakdowns, maintaining profitability for the air transport facility. In this article I am attempting to explain precisely how such structure has been developed in terms of the future financing of our company and how a significant part of contemporary projects in this field involve the already existing aircraft and helicopters.
Fault tolerance tested in flight
Our latest, the most heavy prototype passed tests. Autopilot system was improved, its response to components faults improved also. Now there’s no altitude drawdown and unit rotations when engine fault occurs. Orientation and altitude is being maintained with the help of 72 GHz radar. Optical systems also help autopilot system to do its job right.
A full-sized frame is almost ready!
It’ll give us an opportunity to test all of our systems in real conditions with real loads. Only when all systems pass all required tests on this interim frame (according to the standards of the DO-xxx family) and prove they comply with aviation terms and rules, it’ll be possible to advance to a manned flight.
