HopFlyt Venturi eVTOL Aircraft Urban Air Mobility Vehicle

In this video I take a look at the HopFlyt Venturi, one of the new types of aircraft designed to meet the need for urban aerial mobility (UAM).

This is one of a series of videos about such aircraft so be sure to subscribe to my channel in order to be notified of the other examples.

A growing number of companies, from startups to global brands, are answering the call for safe, quiet, and efficient aircraft that will help to solve the problems of congestion and pollution in our ever expanding cities.

The HopFlyt Venturi is one such aircraft that will be an option for commuters, eager to save time and travel in comfort.

The Venturi’s design is unique and HopFlyt have a patent pending.

It’s the only aircraft of its type that combines variable incidence wings with canard channels.

The combination of this unique design with other aerodynamic principles means that the aircraft is devoid of the traditional control surfaces; ailerons, elevators, rudder, or flaps. This means of course that there is less complexity and weight, and it also reduces the maintenance requirements.

Varying the incidence of the wings in flight and the powered canard design result in optimal lift at all phases of flight.

The Distributed Electrical Propulsion (DEP) allows for independent movement of all the wings and canards, while the contra-rotating propellers produce more thrust and reduced noise.

This eVTOL aircraft promises to provide a smooth ride at optimal speed within and between cities.

These innovations are the result of the many decades of experience in flight and aircraft design and testing within HopFlyt’s team.

The founder and president, Rob Winston, has been a pilot for over 35 years, 22 of which were spent flying high-performance military aircraft.

As well as being a very experienced pilot Rob has designed several aircraft including one of the world’s fastest seaplanes.

Lucille Winston is a co-founder and Vice President.

She is a former NASA Test Engineer with experience developing environment-ready hardware for satellites, the Space Station and the Space Shuttle.

Additionally, she has experience testing military aviation defensive, propulsion and reconnaissance systems.

Rory Feely is another co-founder, the Chief Financial Officer and the Chief Test Pilot at HopFlyt.

Rory is a military Experimental Test Pilot and Marine Corps aviator who has been flying high-performance aircraft for over 20 years.

He has a BSc. in Physics (Honors), an MS in Aerospace Engineering and an MS in Technical Program Management.

HopFlyt’s stated mission is to “solve global traffic congestion & exhaust pollution with eVTOL technology”.

The Venturi looks set to fulfill that mission and I for one look forward to taking a ride in this aircraft in the years to come.
