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 3 medium-range eVTOL passenger concept design aircraft
In 2022, the medium-range Integrity 3 entered into the design phase. The aircraft is slated to be flown by one pilot and carries two passengers and their luggage. The aircraft has a maximum speed of 220 km/h (137 mph) and has a flight range of 125 km (78 miles). The empty weight of the aircraft is 1,000 kg (2,204 lb), has a maximum payload of 300 kg (662 lb) and has a maximum takeoff weight of 1,300 kg (2,866 lb).

The aircraft has one high main wing and in the middle of each wing is a tilting propeller assembly. Each propeller assembly has four booms attached at 90 degree angles to each other and at each end of each boom, is a propeller. Electric motors are located directly under each propeller. The aircraft has a total of eight propellers and eight electric motors on the tilting propeller assemblies. There is also one stationary VTOL propeller located inside the rear horizontal stabilizer (or a propeller-in-wing configuration). The aircraft has a grand total of nine propellers and nine electric motors.

For forward flight, the tilting propeller assembly sits inside a depressed semicircular shaped part of the wing. Then for VTOL flight, the propeller assembly lifts vertical flight. Each propeller assembly can tilt independently of each other and each propeller can work independently of all other propellers providing the aircraft with excellent stability and controllability in calm to gusty winds in real time.

The windows are larger than conventional aircraft and provide a panoramic view allowing forward, left, right visibility, for spectacular views for the passengers, with a solid roof above the passenger compartment. The rear tail is horizontal stabilizer which is at the same height of the main high wing. Over the horizontal stabilizer is another inverted u-shaped horizontal stabilizer connected to the ends of the lower horizontal stabilizer with two vertical stabilizers. The aircraft has fixed tricycle wheeled landing gear, with a single wheel in the front of the aircraft and has two rear bogies, each bogie having a set of two wheels.

The company expects Integrity 3 to be used for executive air service, tourism, on-demand air taxi service, personal use, police, fire, disaster relief, emergency use for doctors, search and rescue, government use and air cargo service.

  • Flight time: Unknown
  • Cruise altitude: Unknown
  • Empty weight: 1,000 kg (2,204 lb)
  • Maximum payload: 300 kg (662 lb)
  • Maximum takeoff weight: 1,300 kg (2,866 lb)
  • Propellers: 9 propellers (8 tilt-propellers, 1 rear stationary VTOL propeller)
  • Electric motors: 9 electric motors
  • Power source: Battery packs
  • Fuselage: Carbon fiber composite
  • Windows: Panoramic wrap around windows allowing forward, left, right visibility, for spectacular views with a solid roof above the passenger compartment
  • Wings: 1 high main wing with winglets
  • Tail: Horizontal stabilizer with an inverted U shaped horizontal stabilizer connected to the ends of the horizontal stabilizer with two vertical stabilizers
  • Landing gear: Fixed tricycle wheeled landing gear, with a single front wheel and has two rear  bogies, each bogie having two wheels
  • 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.
