VRCO has a vision for a flying car with a new form of personal aircraft as the initial phase. It is a showcase for British innovation with advanced lightweight composites enhanced with graphene nanomaterials.
The vertical take-off and landing craft will be capable of carrying 180 kgs or two people. It features detection and avoidance technology with safety measures including a ballistic parachute and low altitude crash prevention systems.
Working with leading innovators and key industry partners at the forefront of the UK’s power storage systems, the craft will be fast-charging and have enhanced range.
Timeline to take-off
Drawing on successes in the UAV space, Michael began the Xcraft design project began in August 2016 and has now moved from design and concept into the build phase.
Full-size build should be completed later this year with operational testing in 2021 and certification in 2022.
VRCO’s founders have experience in unmanned aerial vehicles and have identified several novel component solutions to critical engineering challenges.
The concept’s feasibility and power optimization studies were undertaken by the University of Derby’s Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering.
Supercars of the skies
Our vision over the next decade is that the shackles of commuting are falling away and it’s an age of AirVolution.
These will be supercars of the skies. They will be luxury and high-performing.
