Despite the pandemic, the manufacturer AMSL Aero continues to advance on its VTOL Vertiia and counts start test flights soon. The prototype, designed to cross the vast expanses of Australia, now has a range of 1,000km.
The competition isamong builders of – or with vertical take-off and landing – even though they are still only at the prototype stage. The Australian company AMSL Aero has just taken a new step by presenting an improved version of its prototype called .
So that it is already one of the most efficient devices, its performance has been revised upwards. The

Certification for 2024?
The aircraft has eight rotors, in two rows of four, capable of pivoting for a thrust vertical for take-off, or horizontal for flight. It can reach a speed having a direction and an intensity is represented by a vector, the speed vector. Relative speed is the speed of one body relative to another or relative to a benchmark.cruising speed of 300 km / h and could potentially go much faster. The rotor blades have been specially designed to reduce the flutter (or aeroelastic coupling) inherent in this configuration. mass, the manufacturer indicates that the device could potentially reach 500 km / h without “flutter”.
The development of the Vertiia has however suffered some delays due to the, which has shifted forecasts. The aircraft will soon be ready to begin the , planned at the start next year elder. Now, the company hopes to obtain certification and start production of the device in 2024.

organic matter, which constitutes living beings (animals or plants) orof , ie aircraft vertical take-off and landing. , an Australian company has just designed, with the support of the University of Sydney and the company Mission Systems, a prototype dedicated to medical transport. This air ambulance is called the Vertiia. The aircraft is fitted with eight electric rotors powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. With this engine, the aircraft manufacturer indicates that the Vertiia has a range of 800 km. A version powered only by batteries could reach 250 km of autonomy.
It would even be able to evolve in cruise at 300 km / h. Exceptional performance for a hybrid multirotor
Arranged horizontally, the beam is used to support loads above the void and to connect the pillars, columns or also in carbon fiber, placed at the front and at the rear each accommodate four engines. These elements are movable and allow the rotors to be directed upwards for the and landing.
The eight engines provide a sufficient level of redundancy to ensure flight continuity in the event of failure. © AMSL Aero
Operational in 2023?
For cruising, the rotors are positioned horizontally. On the back of each, ailerons are present. They only serve to control the correct flow of the flow while cruising and increase the so that the aircraft spends as little as possible in horizontal flight. The cabin can accommodate two to three people in tandem, including the pilot. That said, AMSL Aero clarifies that the aircraft has autonomous flight capabilities that may well be activated in the future.
At the moment, AMSL Aero has signed a partnership with CareFlight, a company specializing in medical transport interested in a device capable of landing and taking off without the need for an airport. According to AMSL Aero, the Vertiia could be operational for thefrom 2023. A very optimistic horizon given that the certification of the aircraft must be validated with aviation authorities.
