History and Vision
FlyRotor is an innovative start-up founded by the fusion of skills, abilities and ideas of two entities: DEAGLE, a company specialized in the launch and support of innovative startups in the field of high technology, and 3 aeronautical engineers with a long and consolidated experience in design, development, certification, production and sale of products in the aerospace sector.
The two entities had begun to discuss, evaluate, study and develop together solutions that target the Urban Air Mobility market since the beginning of 2021. In May 2023 they then decided to found FlyRotor.
The purpose of the company is the development of a family of products, called WindHover, of multi-rotor aircraft, manned and/or unmanned, and in the future suitable for autonomous flight. The family includes different configurations to cover wide mission spectrums for individual air mobility, for sport flying, for pilot training, for flying in areas without infrastructure and for carrying out numerous categories of aerial work.
In line with European directives, the aircraft, starting from the first hybrid configurations, will gradually evolve towards “full-electric” configurations and then, when economically compatible, based on fuel cells.
FlyRotor has its operational headquarters in Naples, in a very active and technologically advanced aeronautical context, where it is possible to find all the necessary skills and synergies, both for the experimentation and development phase and for subsequent production. There are universities, research centers, leading companies in the aerospace sector, up to cover the entire necessary supply chain.
Many studies indicate that Urban Air Mobility, intended both for passenger and freight transport, will have a significant development in the near future thanks to a new class of e-VTOL (electrical Vertical Take-off & Landing) aircraft, which are beginning to appear on the market.
The development of these new aircraft is made possible by the availability of light and extremely powerful electric motors, which allow for a distributed electric propulsion architecture, DEP -Distributed Electrical Propulsion, typical of multi-rotors.
This new type of aircraft is naturally and progressively destined to replace traditional helicopters. In fact, the traditional helicopter, both for the mechanics required for the tail rotor and for the complexity of the main rotor, is an intrinsically inefficient machine, expensive in terms of maintenance, very difficult to fly.
An electric multi-rotor aircraft lends itself to multiple missions; as well as for personal mobility, it can in fact be used for the transport of goods, for inspection and control tasks and for connection with remote areas. Thanks to its vertical flight, it can operate from water and even from the sea in conditions that would not allow the use of a conventional seaplane.
-come immagine qui metterei un grafo a torta o comunque un’immagine che suggerisca l’enorme potenzialità di mercato (didascalia: Safe, autonomous, eco-friendly air mobilty for everyone is expected to develop a Total Addressable Market (TAM) of US$1.5Tn by 2040)
