The Zhuhai Svffi Aviation Co., Ltd. was established in 2015 in the Zhuhai Aviation Industrial Park in Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province, China. The company specializes in the research and development and the manufacturing of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) and hybrid-electric VTOL industrial drones and passenger eVTOL aircraft (also known as passenger drones). The company's passenger eVTOL aircraft have been made for advanced air mobility (AAM).
The SF-DL-180 is a one person production eVTOL passenger multicopter aircraft for advanced air mobility that has eight propellers and eight electric motors. The propellers are located along the bottom of the fuselage and located diagonally at the four corners of the aircraft. The aircraft has a front windshield that continues to the roof of the cockpit. The left and right side of cockpit has no doors.
The aircraft has a cruise speed range from 3.6 km/h (2.2 mph) to 36 km/h (22 mph), has a flight time of less than 20 minutes and has a maximum cruise altitude of 300 m (984 feet). The aircraft has an empty weight of 120 kg (265 lb), has a maximum payload of 100 kg (220 lb) and has a maximum takeoff weight of 220 kg (485 lb). The aircraft has fixed skid landing gear to reduce the complexity and weight of the multicopter.
Cockpit: The left and right side of cockpit has no doors
Windows: Has a front windshield that continues to the top of the cockpit allowing views through the top of the fuselage
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.
