With the US Air Force having quite recently announced interest in the availability of 'flying cars' - advanced air-mobility vehicles - within a year of the firm's founding, LIFT Aircraft Inc delivered HEXA- electric-powered machines capable of vertical takeoff and landing (EVTOL), low-maintenance, affordable, sustainable, quiet and safe. Such vehicles do not require runways - they can take off from - and land on - parking lots and driveways.Those developed by Lift have rotors independently powered by 18 electric motors. A triply redundant flight-control computer and multiple collision sensors keep the craft stable and safe during flight, and the craft can land reliably if up to six motors are disabled. In the event of an emergency, an autonomous ballistic parachute deploys. Owners can control it with a single, three-axis joystick and need no pilotâs license to fly it. Six floats offer buoyancy for safe water landings. Of interest to the military is the fact that - with operation of vehicle requiring minimal special training - HEXA could be used on the battlefield as an air ambulance to rescue injured soldiers.
