As an Executive Aircraft for private or corporate use, CityHawk offers an exceptional “upgrade” in space and comfort. The cabin is 50% larger than a comparable helicopter and the absence of the overhead engines and transmissions have eliminated almost all of the vibration and much of the noise.

Clips of several flight tests of our Cormorant VTOL UAV conducted between May and June, 2018. During flight testing this 1 ton aircraft was flying with a 200 kg payload, approximately 2/5ths of its final payload capability.

With a footprint of 2 meters by 6 meters and no external rotor, Cormorant can fly in tight, obstructed airspace where helicopters cannot, while matching the payload/range capability of a Bell 206 or similar helicopter.Both manned and unmanned variants, based on the same platform, are planned. The aircraft is currently powered by a Safran Arriel 2 engine and will transition to hydrogen power as soon as it is feasible.
