The AirisOne is a 5-passenger eVTOL aircraft “specifically designed for short distance flights in urban environments.” It utilizes a 12-ft diameter counter-rotating coaxial lift fan (each stage with 9 blades) for take-off and a series of eight articulating thrusters for winged flight.

The production aircraft would be capable of transporting five passengers a distance of 200 miles at a speed of 175 mph. The aircraft will feature real-time emergency landing routing, ballistic parachutes and fully redundant systems to ensure safety for the passengers and communities it operates in.

Airis Aerospace is a design and manufacturing company with offices in Bermuda and a design center in Duluth, Minnesota. In 2018 it is opening an autonomous development facility in Toronto, Canada. The company is designing the AirisOne with a view to participating in ride-sharing Air Taxi programs, such as Uber Elevate. Airis plans demonstration flights in 2020 and commercial service launch by 2025.
