4×4 Aviation and the VV Plane

4x4 Aviation Ltd VV Vertical Transport

Just when you think all the vertical lift innovation is happening elsewhere you find out about a British company called 4×4 Aviation.

Their concept is to utilise a ducted fan propulsion system with power provided by a hybrid engine and energy storage system to deliver 20 foot ISO containers. It is scaleable from small unmanned system with a payload of 7-10kg right up to a 30 tonne ISO container.

Test flights of scaled demonstrator are planned for later this year.

So, good luck and all that!
