UK based, SAMAD Aerospace has successfully completed the first test flight of its fully electric Starling aircraft.
The Starling aircraft will offer door-to-door human air transportation and high value cargo transportation especially to remote locations. It can transport either one passenger or 100 Kilograms of payload at a speed of 120 miles per hour and range of 220 kilometers.
The hover test flight focused on flight control systems and handling quality of the aircraft during the hover.
Dr. Seyed Mohseni, CEO of SAMAD Aerospace, commented: “It was fantastic to be the first person to fly our beautiful Starling aircraft. The experimental test flight went to plan and was the next step to make Starling aircraft a reality. The fully electric VTOL aircraft will change the future of transportation whilst reducing emissions and carbon footprint. This mission started 25 years ago with a plan to build a winning team and the best in class aircraft in the world.”
The SAMAD Aerospace team of world-renowned experts in their respective fields – including aerodynamics, aircraft design and propulsion systems are already planning the next test flights.
SAMAD say the Starling aircraft will revolutionise the way humans and goods fly around the world.
