The Silverwing S1 is an all electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) hoverbike and a Phase 1 winner of the GoFly competition.

 

This device is a canard-wing configuration around a person in motorcycle-like orientation powered by two electric motors with ducted rotors. The aircraft is a ‘tail-lander’ and makes a 90-degree transition from vertical take-off to horizontal cruise flight. It uses high density batteries and is capable of autonomous flight.

 

A student project at the Delft University of Technology, Silverwing has 21 corporate partners providing technical and/or financial support to the Silverwing team.

 

On June 14, 2018, it was selected as a Phase 1 winner of the GoFly competition.
