Micor Technologies LLC
Norton Shores, Michigan, USA

Founded in 2014, Micor Technology LLC is based in West Michigan (USA) and is a groundbreaking engineering and product development company who employs skilled engineers and scientists creating disrupting technologies related to power and mobility for both military and commercial use. The company charter is to use innovative engineering for emerging markets to extend the range of electric vehicles and aircraft.

The company's plan is to develop new technologies such as high-power density and multi-fuel engines hybrid-electric power sources, which are safe and cost-effective for both power and mobility uses such as ground, marine, air vehicles and co-generation systems (on-site power generation) for buildings and manufacturing plants.

The Advanced Vehicle VTOL Large Jet Aircraft (AVVLJA) is a multi-passenger hybrid-electric vertical takeoff and landing concept design jet that can hold approximately 16-20 passengers, two pilots and one flight attendant. The aircraft's fuselage is similar to a commuter prop plane used by commercial airlines for short flights between cities where air travel is not in great demand. It should be noted that the pilot's window is larger than typical corporate jet designs allowing much better views for the pilot during VTOL, transition and forward flight.

The main wing is a swept-back wing that has booms extending in both the front and rear of the wing. The rear of the booms angle up to hold a rear slightly forward-swept horizontal stabilizer. The unique part of this aircraft is the propulsion system. There are four ducted fan assemblies, each assembly holding five ducted fans for a grand total of 20 ducted fans for the entire aircraft. The ducted fan unit is mounted between the fuselage and the booms. Two sets of the ducted fans are in front of the main wing and two sets of the ducted fans are behind the main wings. The front ducted fans are below the main wing and the rear ducted fans are located above the main wing.

All ducted fan assemblies rotate independently and each ducted fan can independently change its speed to make all necessary adjustments for VTOL, transition and forward flight. Each ducted fan assembly has an additional duct surrounding the ducted fans which is a thrust augmenter. The air passing through the thrust augmenter is moving at a much faster rate of speed than the ambient air speed but at a lower rate of speed than the inner flow through the ducted fans which increase the efficiency of the ducted fans and also reduces the noise level of the aircraft. The second duct also acts like an airfoil and increases the efficiency of the ducted fans.

The engine providing the electricity for the entire aircraft is housed inside the rear of the fuselage of the aircraft. The aircraft is made to use multiple power sources. When battery density become great enough for this type of aircraft, the gas engine will be replaced with battery packs. The aircraft can also be powered by fuel cells once fuel cells are powerful enough and readily available for serial production.

The company has stated this aircraft has multiple redundant powerplant systems, redundancy in the propulsion system and the aircraft is scalable. The aircraft has retractable tricycle wheeled landing gear for ground handling. This hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft will be very useful to people living in any area where there is no airport but there is still demand for air travel.

The company foresees their aircraft to be used for Urban Air Mobility (UAM), rural UAM, aerial inspections, search and rescue, first responder service, military transportation, border security, aerial fire fighting, air cargo and for sightseeing tours. The company has submitted many patents for their aircraft designs.

  • Aircraft type: eVTOL or hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft
  • Piloting: 2 pilots
  • Capacity: 16-20 passengers, plus a flight attendant
  • Cruise speed: Unknown
  • Range: Unknown
  • Propellers: 20 ducted fans
  • Electric Motors: 20 electric ducted fans (there are 4 ducted fan assemblies which rotate for VTOL and forward flight)
  • Power source: Hybrid-electric, future aircraft will have fuel cells or battery packs
  • Fuselage: Carbon fiber
  • Windows: Standard windows found in a commercial propeller plane, the pilot's window is larger than a conventional commercial plane
  • Wings: One main swept-back wing with two booms holding the ducted fan assemblies and the rear of the booms hold a forward-swept horizontal stabilizer
  • Landing gear: Retractable 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 and motors on the aircraft so if one or more motors or propellers fail, the other working motors and propellers can safely land the aircraft.
