Skai can carry 4 passengers with an onboard pilot, and 5 passengers with autonomous control or using a ground-based pilot.The Skai can fly up to 4 hours with a range of 400 miles, though most flights will take just minutes. For specialized applications, auxiliary fuel tanks can increase flight times to 10+ hours.
