Crisalion Mobility was founded in San Sebastián, Spain in 2016 and became a leading company in unmanned aerial systems. The company is now based in Madrid, Spain. The company offers custom services for national and international customers. The company was originally named Umiles Group. In 2020, the company changed its name to Umiles Next. The company's first flying prototype was made by Tecnalia's Research and Technological Development Center (based in Spain). On October 25, 2023, the company announced they changed their name change to Crisalion Mobility to better reflect the identity of the company. (Image credit: Crisalion Mobility)

Crisalion Mobility has received more than €15 million (EUR) from Grupo Ibérica and Grupo Valdemira (both based in Spain) that is being used to continue to expand its technology development and begin air service for advanced air mobility (AAM). In addition, Crisalion has commissioned the investment bank Blue Bull to seek investors for a funding round in hopes to raise between €20 to €25 million (EUR) additional euros. BlueBull, an investment bank specializing in high-growth technology companies, acts as exclusive financial advisor to Crisalion Mobility.

The company's purpose is developing and manufacturing electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) passenger and air cargo aircraft for advanced air mobility (AAM). In addition, the company is also developing remote controlled electric passenger ground vehicles. The company's mission is to be a world leader in advanced, efficient and sustainably manufactured air and ground mobility to improve people's lives. The company has its own technology that maximizes aircraft stability and safety called FlyFree. Tecnalia developed the technology and many successful test flights with this avionics package have been made in Europe. The technology for safe remote driving of their ground vehicles is called IntellyDrive.

Concerning the new company name Crisalion Mobility, it is a blend of two concepts, the chrysalis and the lion. The chrysalis part of the new name represents the transition from ground to air and is also a metaphor for the beginning of the new nascent aviation industry taking place right now around the world of advanced air mobility (AAM). The lion in the name represents the courage, strength and leadership it takes to build a company for urban and intercity advanced air mobility (AAM) and advanced ground mobility (AGM) for the future.

In 2019, the company's first flight of an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) passenger prototype aircraft took place in an indoor stadium. The company has stated they are one of the first company's in the world to perform successfully flight tests of their eVTOL full scale prototype. Since 2022, the prototype has been making many outdoor test flights. The company also has a remote control center in Spain for their remotely operated ground vehicles.

Integrity 6 long-range passenger and air cargo eVTOL concept design aircraft
The Integrity 6 is a long-range passenger and air cargo eVTOL concept design aircraft. The aircraft has one pilot and holds five passengers and their luggage. The aircraft uses Crisalion Mobility's proprietary avionics package called FlyFree that maximizes the aircraft's stability and safety.

The cruise speed of the aircraft is estimated to be 180 km/h (112 mph), has an anticipated maximum speed of 216 km/h (134 mph) and has an expected range of 100 km (62 miles). For all modes of flight, the aircraft has 16 propellers, 16 electric motors and uses batteries for its power source. The aircraft has one main high wing to extend the range of the aircraft had has a standard rear T-tail. The aircraft is made from carbon fiber composite for a high strength to a low weigh ratio. The aircraft has fixed tricycle wheeled landing gear.

Future goals
The company plans to make new road mobility (remote controlled ground vehicles) a real alternative by 2024 and advanced air mobility (AAM) by 2030.

Specifications:

  • Aircraft type: Long-range eVTOL passenger and air cargo concept design aircraft
  • Piloting: 1
  • Capacity: 5 passengers and their luggage
  • Cruise speed: 180 km/h (112 mph)
  • Maximum speed: 216 km/h (134 mph)
  • Range: 100 km (62 miles)
  • Propellers: 16 propellers
  • Electric motors: 16 electric motors
  • Power source: Batteries
  • Fuselage: Carbon fiber composite
  • Windows: Panoramic wrap around windows allowing forward, left and right visibility for spectacular views with a solid roof above the passenger compartment
  • Wings: 1 main high wing with downward facing winglets
  • Tail: T-tail
  • Landing gear: Fixed tricycle wheeled 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 of critical components in the sub-systems of the aircraft.
