PIONEERING HYDROGEN ELECTRIC FLIGHT

Taras Wankewycz, Founder/CEO

Over the past 15 years our team designed dozens of hydrogen electric systems of all shapes and sizes with the best aerospace engineering teams from around the world.

We have seen what works, and what doesn't - and we are now putting all this knowledge to work to power forward on a new era in flight.

Welcome to the start of zero carbon aerial mobility

Think big, but start small and solve challenges over time.

 

By starting small we can test zero carbon fuel technologies and infrastructure, we can test for safety, we can validate economics.

STEP 1:   HYCOPTER

The most advanced

hydrogen-electric drone

available on the market today

A hydrogen-electric drone capable of up to 3.5 hours flight, 7 times the flight duration of a professional battery powered DJI drone. 

 

HYCOPTER can help professionals reduce the need for constant battery swaps on large-scale sites, accelerating, and simplifying operations.

HYCOPTER will soon be able to support last-mile delivery efforts over much longer distances.

Made in the USA

 FROM DRONES TO PLANES

Hydrogen is lighter than batteries, but it's also much more difficult to store and it takes up a lot more volume than any other fuel. Aircraft retrofits don't offer an optimal solution to this fundamental problem.

By aligning the special characteristics of fuel cell technology with distributed electric propulsion, we've changed the game. Our patented approach addresses safety, hydrogen volume and refuelling infrastructure.

 ZERO CARBON END TO END

Our responsibility doesn't stop at the emissions of our air vehicles, but how our hydrogen was produced. We are building an innovator eco-system able to look beyond the conventional options such as solar and wind

JOINING PARIS AIR MOBILITY HUB

From June 2021, in close cooperation with the French civil aviation authority (DGA) and with the support of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Eurocontrol, 30 of 125 global candidates were selected by an expert jury to join the air mobility eco-system and being testing. 

We are one of the selected partners!  

 

Others include Airbus, Safran, Pipistrel, Volocopter, Zipline & Vertical aerospace.

MAKING HISTORY AGAIN

100 years ago legendary pilots ventured into the unknown as they crossed the stormy South Atlantic from Senegal to Brazil. AEROPOSTALE was at start of modern commercial aviation, and the start of a world-leading aerospace eco-system - with Toulouse at its core.

Let's do it again, this time with hydrogen as our fuel.

We will attempt that symbolic crossing once again, only this time with renewable hydrogen. We will design and build this breakthrough in Toulouse, alongside a new generation of aviation pioneers.

IN THE NEWS 

First Hydrogen Transatlantic Flight in the Works

SUPAERO Toulouse and HES enter R&D Partnership

H3 Dynamics and its HES subsidiary announced the start of its zero-emission aviation development in Europe, stating its goal to be the first to fly electric across the Atlantic on clean, renewable hydrogen fuel. A first transatlantic flight will be attempted in 2023 using an unmanned aerial test platform.

​The Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California took delivery of the Navy’s first ever hydrogen fuel cell powered rotary-wing unmanned aerial system (UAS) on 25 October 2019.

H3 Dynamics and its HES Energy Systems subsidiary is announcing today that its innovative HYCOPTER hydrogen-electric drone capable of flying over 3 hours per charge is hosted by Dubai Police at Intersec 2019 in Dubai.
