Aircraft inventor Simon Etlinger founded the Edea company and is based in Austria. Etlinger as created several versions of hybrid-electric vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft for the Phase I, II and III of Boeing’s GoFly Prize contest. He completed the Phase III GoFly Prize competition with this aircraft. Etlinger is looking for investors to create an Urban Air Mobility VTOL aircraft and bring it to market for serial production.

While not much is known about rotorcraft, it hold one passenger and is capable of carrying a bottom removable cargo container. A unique feature of this rotorcraft are the multiple propellers used for both VTOL and forward flight. Three of those propellers are dedicated for forward flight only.
