CollaborativeBee Mini-Bee

Mini-Bee CollaborativeBee France www.collaborativebee.com The Mini-Bee is a collaborative project producing a piloted ten rotor Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) fixed-wing aircraft to be used primarily for medical evacuation. The Mini-Bee is 6 m long with six static inboard vertical propellers and four tilting rotors at the tips of forward and aft fixed wings. A piston engine produces 250 kW for electric motors and there is a battery for take-off boost and as a back-up. Cruise speed will be 250 km/h with a range of 500 km and a service ceiling of 4,000 m. Fuel capacity is 1500 L. It includes a parachute. It will carry two pilots. It will initially be used primarily as an emergency medical air-evac vehicle with varying capacities of up to three passengers and two patients depending on its central module configuration. The Mini-Bee has progressed through several variants since 2011 from the TRL1 to the TRL3. A model premiered at the 2017 Paris Airshow. The first flight demonstration will be in 2019. Supervised by Technoplane, CollaborativeBee’s Mini-Bee project is a vast collaborative project that led to a challenge carried out by the NAE (Normandie AeroEspace cluster) and includes a partnership with ten universities, 14 investors and a design firm.

Kronstadt Air Taxi

Air Taxi Kronstadt Technologies, JSC Saint Petersburg, Russia www.iala-aism.org/organisation/kronshtadt-technologies-jsc The Kronstadt Air Taxi or City Taxi is a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL), vector thrust, fixed wing vehicle with tilt propellers to be used for short term urban mobility travel. The Air Taxi uses an all-composite air-frame with fixed wings forward and two large fuselage mounted tilt propellers aft. A complex configured stabilizer assembly runs overhead from the wings to a vertical rudder. The hybrid power plant will allow speeds of 150-200 km/h with a 150 km range. The average power consumption per 1 km of flight will be 0.6 kW. Accent and landings can be automatic for 2-4 passengers. The vehicle will be used for short passenger hops. (The following is awaiting confirmation): The Air Taxi appears to be a variant or based on the Kronstadt “Frigate” drone. This suggests a 1,800 kg version might be ready as early as 2020 and a 6,350 kg sized model ready for production by 2023.
