Workhorse, an American company that wants to innovate in the field of personal mobility, today is committed to designing vehicles that are environmentally friendly and safe. To do this, in addition to its trucks, the company is today developing its helicopter range with the Surefly by Workhorse.
Unveiled at the Air Show in Paris, the Surefly by Workhorse intends to revolutionize the private helicopter market. The aim is to provide the owners with an efficient and safe means of transport, while reducing costs.
The Surefly by Workhorse design, built from carbon fiber, consists of four arms each equipped with two thrusters. Of course, the aircraft is equipped with a parachute in case of emergency, available for each of the two passengers.
On the motor side, the Surefly by Workhorse ensures the safety of the passengers thanks to an emergency battery in case the main engine fails. The main engine is powered by gasoline and generates electricity without the need for long hours of charging between each trip. The two engines provide the driver with a distance of 110km and a load capacity of 180kg, ideal for transporting goods.
The other big advantage of the Surefly by Workhorse is its ease of piloting. This is done using technology that helps take-off and landing vertically, and navigation provides optimum visibility through the GPS system and Workhorse-developed system to detect difficult climatic conditions in real time. This last feature also allows you to save fuel and choose a more relevant flight plan.
Containing the 200 horsepower of the Surefly by Workhorse is therefore child's play and the static port and pitot tube allow you to control the altimeter and the speed of the air in a twinkling of an eye like a giant drone.
Surefly by Workhorse orders are already available, but you should know that it takes $ 1,000 to book this drone, out of the $ 200,000 you have to spend in total!
