Urban Aeronautics Ltd. has developed advanced aerodynamic technologies that are the basis for an entirely new family of internal rotor (ducted fan) aircraft known as Fancraft™. UrbanAero capitalizes on its extensive portfolio of Intellectual Property via two subsidiary companies, Tactical Robotics Ltd. and Metro Skyways Ltd., each of which is developing unique Fancraft™ for specific markets. UrbanAero’s unmanned military Fancraft is the Cormorant and has flown extensively since 2009, including autonomous free flights since Dec. 30, 2015.
CityHawk is unique in combining a compact, car-sized design that has a four-passenger capacity, no exposed rotors or wings, no batteries and potential for zero carbon emissions. Hydrogen’s only byproduct is water. CityHawk is designed to achieve these qualities while meeting all design criteria that are the basis for eventual FAA/EASA certiﬁcation. This paves the way for true, unrestricted commercial viability.
While CityHawk will initially be piloted by a human pilot, the vehicle’s ﬂight control and ﬂight management systems will be capable of a high degree of autonomy from the outset. The technology is being developed and tested on Tactical Robotics’ Cormorant prototype which already ﬂies fully autonomously. As the technology of autonomy and regulatory infrastructure mature, CityHawk will eventually transport passengers robotically.
