MAGNIFICENT HEAVY LIFT VTOL SAMAD S5M

Impressive design of whole VTOL will excites with very specific look of blended wings with body (BWB). Whole configuration improving aerodynamics, efficient accommodating of the lift fans in the fuselage, more space inside the cabin, better noise characteristics, enhanced safety and more efficiency in the propulsion system.​

Company Samad Aerospace based in the United Kingdom took a big bite by coming with the idea of developing Heavy Lift VTOL for delivery not only in hybrid but also fully electrified version. As we expected not a long time ago we witnessed a successful demonstration flight.

The impressive design of the whole VTOL will excite with a very specific look of blended wings with the body (BWB). The whole configuration improves aerodynamics, efficient accommodating of the lift fans in the fuselage, more space inside the cabin, better noise characteristics, enhanced safety and more efficiency in the propulsion system.​

A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft is one that can hover, take off and land vertically.

They approached us to deliver 40kW REB 30 and 50kW REB 50 electric motors, also motor controllers of 100kW and 33 kW. They have been chosen for the hybrid version of VTOL and the electric propulsion system of the aircraft.

Hybrid has a gas turbine connected to a generator that charges the batteries, which provide the power for the electric lift and the cruise motors. Lifting up to 100 kg and flying magnificent 125 miles per hour. The VTOL aircraft can also use the hot thrust from the gas turbine for further cruise acceleration outside urban areas.

And on the other hand, the second version, fully electrified, is able to lift up to 60 kgs, speed 95 miles per hour and it is able to fly up to 3000 m high.

As they said, they delivered. Samad Aerospace has been working on the first flying prototype since 2018 and today we see heavy lifting VTOL S5M in action.

„Our dream is to revolutionize the way humans and goods fly around the world. To achieve that, a group of world-renowned experts in their respective fields – including aerodynamics, aircraft design and propulsion systems – are working together to develop a range of products that will redefine the air traveling experience. Imagine a transportation system that is safer than a car, completely flexible, as eco-friendly as an electric vehicle, less time-consuming than any plane or train and is as luxurious as a private jet. This is the unique combination of features that will be offered by e-Starling and Starling Jet in door-to-door human air transportation; thus completely changing the travel perspective.“ – source www.samadaerospace.com

We can to only agree with their philosophy and we will watch closely their next steps.
