Ryse Aero Tech’s Goal to Bring eVTOLs to Non-Pilots!

Medium

Several innovations have been made about eVTOL (electrical vertical take-off and landing) vehicles as of late. Ryse Aero Tech’s eVTOL is pretty simplistic in its approach and designed with non-flyers in mind. The Recon (pictured above) can be flown with minimal training and in areas with very little room for take-off or landing.

First, a little information on Ryse Aero Tech, based out of Mason, Ohio. Mick Kowitz is the President and CEO of the company, which aims to bring electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft to the market for the masses. In Ryse Aero Tech’s own words:

We make electric VTOL aircraft for people with places to go and things to do. We help our customers seize the opportunity in flight that has only recently become a possibility.

As previously stated, the RECON was designed considering that most people are not pilots. When piloting this eVTOL, it will feature advanced artificial intelligence assistance and will have simplistic cockpit controls. The RECON is designed for one individual with a top speed of 63mph and a range of 25 miles. There are a few unknowns, such as maximum height (altitude) and actual flight time, as the battery situation is a moving target. We know the batteries will be easily removable and replaceable, much like non-manned drones today.
