Since 2007, Thibault Chatillon has been working with, inventing, flying and designing drones, including designing passenger electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Chatillon is based in Lyon, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France. In addition, he's designed the first vertiport network in France for eVTOL aircraft and drones. Cahtillon is also working on innovative eVTOL aircraft design concepts for advanced aerial mobility (AAM) and air racing. On several of Chatillon's social media accounts, his handle is Tibo Cat Lion.
The H10 EMS is an eVTOL air ambulance aircraft concept design which is flown by one pilot and holds one medical attendant, one patient, and appropriate medical equipment and supplies. The aircraft has a spacious cabin, has wrap around windows, there are 10 propellers, 10 electric motors and has fixed skid landing gear. The propellers are attached on two booms which parallel the fuselage and are attached to the aircraft by one center cross boom. The cross boom is attached to the top of the fuselage. The top center cross boom is attached to a gimbal and rolls in all directions to keep the fuselage level during flight and this configuration allows for better forward flight and maneuvering.
The fuselage has rear doors allowing easy crew and patient entry and exiting. The aircraft has a small foot print permitting the aircraft to land in small unprepared urban open spaces or any prepared landing pads during emergency situations.
Aircraft type: eVTOL passenger EMS aircraft
Piloting: 1 pilot
Capacity: 2 passengers (1 attendant, 1 patient)
Propellers: 10 propellers
Electric motors: 10 electric motors
Power source: Batteries
Fuselage: Carbon fiber composite
Windows: Wrap around windows
Landing gear: Fixed skid type landing gear
Safety features: Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP), provides safety through redundancy for its passengers and/or cargo. DEP means having multiple propellers (or ducted fans) and motors on the aircraft so if one or more propellers (ducted fans) or motors fail, the other working propellers (or ducted fans) and motors can safely land the aircraft. There are also redundancies in the sub-systems of the aircraft.
