LIFT’s HEXA aircraft was recently evaluated in a series of tests in preparation of their upcoming public launch in the US.
As pictured above, one of the personal aerial vehicle’s safety features are HEXA’s bottom floats (6 on the legs, and one in the center), which make HEXA amphibious – capable of water take off and landings.
Combined with the aircraft’s small profile and vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capability, this safety feature also opens up a range of possibilities for various applications. HEXA can be employed for a diverse range of missions – emergency response, including search-and-rescue missions, emergency medical services, and humanitarian aid efforts. During natural disasters or medical emergencies in remote areas, the aircraft can swiftly transport essential supplies, medical personnel, and equipment.
In a recent announcement, LIFT Aircraft publicized their Beta program, which will allow investors that contribute $5000 or more via StartEngine to have early access to flight training for HEXA flights at their Austin, Texas headquarters. As the company advertises, anyone is able to invest in the venture; LIFT has already amassed $18M in funding from VC’s, accredited investors, and US government grants, including over $5M from crowd sourced investing.

Why it’s important: HEXA is one of the only aerial mobility vehicles capable of amphibious operations, opening up another medium of possibilities to fill an otherwise unaddressed niche of the aerial mobility Markey. LIFT is working to generate awareness in progress toward their investment campaign and upcoming public launch and continues to share with investors and enthusiasts alike a unique feature of their PAV.
