Taking over where helicopter payloads leave off. And did we mention, SkyLifters are designed to make the future green.
SkyLifters are designed for lifting payloads up to 25 tonnes, vertically, as an air-crane. The payload hook is suspended permanently in the sky using an aerostat which also supports the entire mass of the aircraft.
This lifting capability could be used to carry items for wind-farm construction, pylon and bridge installations, and anything that is too heavy for helicopters, or too difficult to move by land or sea.
Our focus is to lift and carry oversize, large payloads or fragile items, so the SkyLifter carries its payload externally. If the item needs protection, we can surround it with a payload jacket.
Being able to move oversize loads with relative ease, freed from the size restrictions of road transport, will enable factory manufacturing to make larger items at less cost.
No landing, minimal payload hand-offs, and extended loiter are key benefits. SkyLifters would be used in many projects where other terrestrial crane services are unable to work, particularly in isolated, mountainous, waterlogged or forest regions.
