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.

Designed in 2019, the Mon Nouveau is a two passenger eVTOL concept design aircraft for advanced air mobility (AAM). The aircraft uses eight propellers and eight electric motors and each set of propellers are ducted propellers. The cruise speed is estimated to be 80 km/h (50 mph), has a maximum flight speed of 160 km/h (99 mph) and has a flight time of 25 minutes.

The cruise altitude is 3,000 m (9,843 feet). The empty weight of the aircraft is 240 kg (529 lb), has a maximum payload of 160 kg (353 lb) and has a maximum takeoff weight of 400 kg (882 lb). The aircraft lands on fixed skid-type landing gear.

Specifications:

  • Aircraft type: eVTOL passenger aircraft
  • Capacity: 2 passengers
  • Cruise speed: 80 km/h (50 mph)
  • Maximum flight speed: 160 km/h (99 mph)
  • Flight time: 25 minutes
  • Cruise altitude: 3,000 m (9,843 feet)
  • Empty weight: 240 kg (529 lb)
  • Maximum payload: 160 kg (353 lb)
  • Maximum takeoff weight: 400 kg (882 lb)
  • Propellers: 8 propellers
  • Electric motors: 8 electric motors
  • Power source: Batteries
  • Fuselage: Carbon fiber composite
  • Windows: Panoramic wrap around windows allowing forward, left, right and top visibility, for spectacular views for the passengers
  • 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. Has an emergency ballistic parachute.
