LIFT Aircraft Personal Flying Machine

Matt Chasen, founder of uShip, has unveiled his new project, LIFT Aircraft’s Hexa, an electric, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft that anyone will be able to rent and experience. It resembles a large drone with 18 sets of propellers, motors and batteries, with just one seat for the pilot. Since this weighs in at just 432 lbs, it qualifies as a Powered Ultralight by the FAA so no pilot’s license is required to fly. Electric multirotor aircraft fly using distributed electric propulsion (DEP), which allows an aircraft to be controlled simply by varying the speed of multiple electric motors, accomplished by flight control computers. Unlike traditional helicopters, Hexa can even fly with up to six of its eighteen motors out, has a ballistic parachute that autonomously deploys in the event of an emergency, complete with 5 floats to safely land on water, and can be controlled remotely by LIFT trained safety pilots in the event of an emergency.
