Founded in 2006, Voltline is based in Gunpo, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea and is in the business of making electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft for advanced air mobility (AAM). The company is currently looking for investors.

The Skyla_V1 is a one passenger multicopter eVTOL prototype aircraft and has 12 propellers and 12 electric motors. The fuselage has an enclosed cabin with a canopy over the cockpit. There is one door located on the left side of the pilot which can be attached or removed during flight. There are two propellers are each of the six booms. Two booms are angled to the front, two booms are on the side of the aircraft and two booms are angled towards the rear of the aircraft. The eVTOL multicopter prototype has fixed skid landing gear.

The aircraft has been successfully flown multiple times with a pilot for flight testing.

Specifications:

  • Aircraft type: eVTOL one passenger prototype multicopter aircraft
  • Piloting: 1 pilot
  • Propellers: 12 propellers
  • Electric motors:  12 electric motors
  • Power source: Batteries
  • Fuselage: Unknown
  • Window: Canopy over cockpit
  • Landing gear: Fixed skid 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.
