Mr. Robinson will provide an overview of Astro’s existing Alta and Elroy programs and the new funding provided by Astro to enable Horizon to speed up the development of its X5 Cavorite. Horizon has successfully completed more than 200 test flights of its sub-scale prototype X5 Cavorite, a five-seater hybrid-electric eVTOL. The primary objective for the sub-scale eVTOL prototype’s test flights is to verify aerodynamics, control systems and transitional flight. For vertical flight, the wing surfaces retract to open its ducted fans before closing again after it achieves a minimum forward speed, maximizing the craft’s aerodynamic efficiency while lowering operational costs.
The full-scale X5 Cavorite, which is expected to travel up to an estimated 450 km/h with a 500-kilometer range, is designed for reduced hydrocarbon emissions, poor weather, traffic avoidance, and low-time pilots. The aircraft targets Urban Air Mobility, in addition to long-range, Regional Air Mobility which is an underserved market by eVTOL competitors. The patented fan-in-wing allows the Cavorite to be the world’s first eVTOL that can fly the majority of its mission exactly like a normal aircraft.
The LD Micro Invitational will take place on Tuesday, June 8th– Thursday, June 10th, 2021 exclusively on the Sequire Virtual Events platform.
