The PAV-X Company (PAV = Personal Air Vehicle) was a small start-up which created several concept eVTOL aircraft. The PAV-X eVTOL (electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing) is shown here.
The aircraft is a very sleek design with six (6) sets of propellers, each set containing two (2) propellers, for a total of twelve (12) propellers. Each propeller can be seen to have three (3) props. The aircraft was to be either all electric or a hybrid-electric aircraft. One can see that cockpit canopy allows a wide field of view allowing the pilot/passenger to see forward, left, right and above.
The company closed September 2018 and a new company was established in October 2018, called Esprit Aeronautics Limited. The new company, it’s eVTOL aircraft and information is located here.
