Vinata Aeromobility announced yesterday that their Hybrid Powered Flying car and Air Cargo aircrafts are both set for concept reveal/launch on October 5th in Excel London, at the world’s largest Helitech Exhibition.The company also released this teaser video of their concept: celebrating their 75th independence day:
Vinata has garnered seed stage funding with angel investor Mr. Mohan Paroha, the founder of Paroha Developers, Paroha Technologies, Paroha Reality. He has 27 years of versatile experience in Management, IT, Real estate and other business in India and Europe. He is currently working on to develop a fintech company, AR-based tryon app and to provide support to many startups along with urban Air Mobility Infrastructure Developments. Mr. Mohan Paroha shares his dream of flying cars and has therefore joined as Cofounder to support the project by Vinata Aeromobility.
With this project, Vinata Aeromobility intends on deploying their concept as early as 2023. The main focus is to harness user excitement with the intention of bringing the future closer to everyone and promoting sustainable development in the Air transport sector.
Yohg CAS Iyer, founder & CEO, Vinata Aeromobility says, “Urban Air Mobility has been categorized into two, that is, flying passenger cars and cargo. Our passenger car is a 2 Seater Flying car Prototype and this makes it to join the largest Helitech Expo in the world. Vinata Aeromobility is also unveiling and developing a full autonomous 200Kg Payload Capacity Hybrid Air Cargo UAM which will greatly boost revenue earnings in the cargo industry.”
The Hybrid Powered car from Vinata Aeromobility weighs 1100kg and can handle a maximum takeoff weight of 1300kg. Since it has an electric battery, this aircraft type of the Hybrid Flying car is a Made in India Hybrid Electric VTOL. The Rotor Configuration of the flying car is the Co-axial quad-rotor.
Vinata Aeromobility has stated that the Hybrid Powered flying car is more sustainable and it uses Bio Fuel, and it appears that Vinata Aeromobility was very cognizant of the safety of its latest design as well. The Hybrid Powered Flying car has a Distributed Electric Propulsion which provides safety for the passengers through redundancy. The Distributed Electric Propulsion means that the flying car has multiple motors and propellers. Therefore, if one or more propellers or motors fail, the remaining propellers and motors that are still in good condition can land the flying car safely. In case there is a power interruption on the generator, the backup power will provide electricity to the motor.
The Hybrid Powered Flying car will also feature an ejection parachute, along with airbags for those in the flight deck.
Why it’s important: Vinata’s design claims follow the most popular trends in the aerial mobility industry for design at present, however they are still a concept stage company that has not completed flight tests of their aircraft. Continue to monitor Vinata’s progress as October draws nearer and their design is unveiled at Helitech in London.
