IONDESIGN takes off! The Y-FLYER is a groundbreaking concept for easy and safe flying.The collaboration with aviation experts and the product design by IONDESIGN make the Y-Flyer fly.
Field of work
The Y-Flyer is a unique concept for single-person manned flight, designed to be compact, agile and flexible.
Multicopter technology enables both autonomous and remote-controlled flying. This means that even inexperienced people can start flying immediately.
For rescue and surveillance, the Y-Flyer quickly reaches places that are otherwise difficult or inconvenient to access: for example, for emergency doctors at traffic accidents, for pilots in ports, for police at operations, for firefighters at forest fires.
In touristically attractive locations, several Y-Flyers can be operated as a “fun fact” in combination with an associated hub. For example, leisure operators can offer special guided tours and flights over nature parks. Places that are otherwise inaccessible can be reached on fixed routes.
The 40″ base container provides space for the transport and maintenance of three aircraft and one spare aircraft. It is the self-sufficient service and loading station with space for staff, technology and take-off and landing control.
All service facilities such as reception and sales area, changing rooms with lockers, launderette, soft drink bar and outdoor spectator lounge can be integrated here. With self-sufficient solar power and wireless connectivity to aircraft and infrastructure.
The Y-Flyer makes flying an accessible and safe experience, for rescue and surveillance, for recreation or as a working tool for the cowboy of tomorrow.
