A3 Vahana

Vahana Welcome - Vahana - Vahana The Vahana project began in early 2016 as one of the first Airbus outposts in Silicon Valley, at A³ (pronounced "A-cubed"). We at Vahana are passionately interested in flying personally. We build an airplane that does not require a take-off and landing strip, is self-controlling and can recognize and bypass obstructions and other airplanes automatic.

We want to make it the first pilotless certificated airliner capable of carrying a lone traveller or freight. At Vahana, we are at the forefront of converging demographic development trend and fast improvement in battery technology, progressive sensor technology, mass-produced light weight composites and more. Today, many of the technological and regulative hurdles for a scaleable, accessible air travel are evolving positively:

Inexpensive, dependable aviation electronics are becoming more and more widely available and take advantage of decade-long UAVs. Advanced technologies for detecting and avoiding obstacles can make it possible for planes to take off and land safely and for collisions to be reliably avoided in the air. The latest progress in the automatic production and assembling of composites shows that small, light weight cars can be manufactured in high quantities and at much lower prices than conventional aviation and space technologies have permitted.

We' ve assembled a fast-paced squad of dedicated professionals for airplane engineering and manufacture, electrical power, automotive self-sufficiency and airplane certifications. Finished car bodywork. Aircrafts fly on predefined routes, with only slight variations when it comes to avoiding obstacles. It is our belief that this operating method will be interoperable with tomorrow's air traffic control system and that more planes will divide the skies.

The fully-automated system also allows us to make our airplanes as small and lightweight as possible and significantly lower production cost. We have made a number of choices to make the car easier ?and, then fly ?and - while, which provides some level of flexibility that allows our planes to continue working securely even after the loss of an engine.

The unlikely case of a serious failure is when the car uses a balistic chute that works even at low heights. In addition to designing the car itself, we are committed to advancing the major technological classes, promoting the evolution of the system of regulation for the approval and operations of automatic aeroplanes, and otherwise promoting an eco-system that contributes to enabling the vertically integrated city of the North.

For this purpose we do not build Vahana alone. Most of our research will be open. The next articles will give a deeper insight into our system designs and analyses. Many of our in-house utilities and codes will also be released under an opensource license. We are always on the lookout for talented individuals and developing partnerships.

We would like to know if you would like to be part of the Vahana group.
