Embraer’s disruptive business subsidiary, EmbraerX, is expanding into the commercial air cargo market through a collaboration agreement with Elroy Air.
Elroy Air has revealed new details about the cargo handling system in its hybrid-electric Chaparral drone, designed for high-throughput aerial logistics.
Pipistrel announced it is taking “a step sideways” from its 801 eVTOL air taxi concept to focus on a cost-effective cargo drone.
The company is teaming with APUS and the Brandenburg University of Technology on the demonstrator, which will use Rolls-Royce’s M250 gas turbine engine.
XTI Aircraft Company is exploring options for future assembly and support of its hybrid-electric TriFan 600 in Guizhou Province, China.
The Chaparral aerial cargo system proves that a talented small team can build a “world-class” VTOL aircraft, said Elroy Air CEO David Merrill.
