Vision

Be Green in the sky:

  • Sustainable, solar-electric, endless floating.
  • Air-crane lifting solutions primarily for construction.

Make money AND save our planet

Working to:

  • Grow £10m to £300m over 7 years.
  • Generate ROI in 3-year timelines.
  • Satisfy existing market demand, primarily for Wind Energy.
  • Deliver high-margin value for early-adopting customers.
  • Maximise the sense of purpose and value from this genuine Impact investment

What’s New

A step-change in eVTOL aircraft design:

  • Flight with Zero emissions.
  • Lifting more than any helicopter.
  • Higher hook than any land crane.
  • Faster set-up and budget-friendly operating cost.
  • R&D breakthroughs in handling and payload efficiency.

Highlights

What is the fuss about?
  • Opportunity – The world needs to move big things – lifting and carrying. For lifting, large land cranes have physical access and height limits, and helicopters max-out at 20 tonnes. For carrying, ships cannot go over land, trucks and trains need roads and aircraft need airports. ALL cause pollution. And there simply more demand than supply, so prices are rising and economic growth is restricted.
  • Solution – lighter-than-air (airships and aerostatic) technology bypasses all the problems stated above. We know how to build a better solution for lifting and carrying.
  • Product – UNIQUE. The SkyLifter is a flying crane, lifting 25 tonne payloads, with endless endurance hover. Safe, environment friendly and easy to use. Also, low-thru-life cost, so attractive business case for Operators.
  • Team – we are an experienced team of professionals, yet our approach to aerospace is uncommon. That will be obvious when you meet us. See our faces below.
  • GREEN – creating genuinely sustainable alternatives for flight. This is our WHY and will be our legacy.

 

Investor perspective

INTERESTED?

  • Some years ago we witnessed the market opportunities and started bootstrapping the SkyLifter project.
  • Now the demand for an environment-friendly aircraft is in the world’s eye.
  • Friendly suppliers are qualified and waiting to help us.
  • The time is right to fast-track the first SkyLifters to market. Help us boost our pace.

Next steps:

  • In Q2 2021 we seek expressions of interest from sophisticated high-value investors to share the creation of the capability demonstrator (9 months), similar to the video above.
  • This will secure customer orders and enable the funding to create the Type 1 SkyLifter, certified to the level need by early adopting customers.
  • Revenue is anticipated in year 3.
  • Breakeven is anticipated in year 4.
