At the only domestic technology exhibition “Flying Car Technology” with the theme of flying cars held at Tokyo Big Site from November 4th to 6th, 2020, eVTOL Japan will be a two-seater helicopter “Flying Car Technology”. The eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft) version of “Robinson R22” is on display.
Based on the fact that the company originally sold the Robinson Helicopter Company’s helicopter, the eVTOL exhibited this time was put into practical use by replacing the engine with a motor. Since the body part has already obtained type certification, it is said that the feature is that the period until practical use can be shortened.
The company is developing it with the aim of selling it within two years. In the future, the maximum load capacity will be increased to 5 people, and it will be used for various purposes such as doctor helicopters, disaster relief, and flying taxis. I want to go.
