Flying consumer aircraft scoops world famous design award
Maform Design have scooped the biggest design award in the world for successfully creating the world’s first ever passenger drone that can be flown without a pilots license.
The LIFT Hexa received the accolade in the A’ Aerospace and Aviation category at this year’s prestigious A’ Design awards. The event and winning titles are recognized worldwide as the highest achievement in design, symbolizing exceptional standards.
The LIFT Hexa is an aircraft that enables anyone anywhere to fly, no pilot’s license required. The unique drone like device consists of 18 propellers arranged in two circles, boasting a flight time of roughly half an hour.
Hungarian based Maform Design have been recipients of the A’ Design Award over nine times, recognising their ability to produce successful global products, from Modulo, the world’s first composite body electric bus to the XBody Actiwear EMS fitness device.
Speaking about scooping an A’ Design Award for the LIFT Hexa aircraft, CEO and Co-founder of Maform Design, Peter Molnar said,
“We are delighted to have won an award for the LIFT Hexa. The LIFT Hexa was an extremely technical project as it had to be able to carry passengers who in most cases would be unfamiliar with flying, therefore posing many challenges in terms of passenger safety. I am really happy because this project reflects our unique approach; it shows we think in entirety with a design thinking approach, and this award shows that our efforts are valued.”
