lift Aircraft is the world’s first ever multirotor eVTOL aircraft in association with LIFT. Designed for aspirational pilots across the globe, the eVTOL airship, otherwise known as the Hexa aircraft will enable anyone anywhere to fly, no pilot’s license required.

The eVOTL aircraft is safe and easy to operate. Similar to drones, the flight computer keeps the aircraft stabilized with the pilot controlling direction via a joystick. It also continuously calculates the energy required to ‘return to home’ based on the aircraft altitude, wind speed and direction. A foolproof operating system means that regardless of the pilot’s actions, the eVOTL will automatically land when the battery is running low.
The unique piece of technology launched in Austin, Texas in December which will consumerize flying for the first time is a large drone that consists of 18 sets of propellers, motors and batteries. With just one seat for a pilot, it weighs only 432Ibs, qualifying it as a powered ultralight by the FAA.
