Hybrid-Electric Aircraft

Innovating on the cutting edge of aerospace technology

Connect with Odys Aviation

Long-range, high-speed, hybrid-electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft.

Odys Aviation is leading the industry with hybrid-electric aircraft technology. We're developing a hybrid-electric VTOL designed to advance aerospace technology and create game-changing benefits for passengers and operators.

Our aircraft uses a hybrid-electric propulsion system. It uses the best of conventional gas turbines and all-electric battery VTOL. The result: a sustainable VTOL with 200 miles electric range, 750 miles total range, 345 mph speed, and capacity for 9 passengers and 2 pilots.

A Revolution in VTOL Technology

The Odys Aviation hybrid-electric VTOL offers range, speed, and passenger capacity to service more than 52% of US domestic air routes.

Our hybrid-electric VTOL effortlessly balances the need for efficient performance, long range, sustainability, and passenger capacity. It can cut travel time in half while dramatically reducing carbon footprint, for cleaner skies and greener operations.

Advanced Technology in Flight

Flap-Based Thrust Vectoring VTOL

Simplicity is key. Other eVTOL aircraft utilize tilting fans and rotors to generate lift. However, the aerodynamics involved with transitioning between vertical lift and forward flight causes immense challenges. That's why we use flap-based thrust vectoring as the primary mechanism for lift generation. The flap-based vertical take off system directs thrust from the rotors downward. Pair that design with box wings, and we can generate impressive pitch authority and stability while hovering.

Hybrid-Electric Propulsion

Hybrid-electric technology makes the Odys Aviation uniquely valuable to many existing operators. The optimal balance between performance and sustainability paves the way for green aviation thanks to its high-capacity batteries and power-generating turbine. With an all-electric range of 200 miles and a total hybrid-electric range of 750 miles, the Odys aircraft will reduce carbon footprints for airlines and passengers alike.

Sustainable Aviation Fuel

The Odys Aviation aircraft can operate with traditional jet fuel, but it is also designed to operate with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). This can reduce emissions by as much as 80% compared to conventional jet fuel, pushing the Odys aircraft's sustainability even further.

Autonomous Flight

At launch, our aircraft will be traditionally piloted. But the aircraft will be equipped with the sensors, connectivity, and processing power to enable remote and autonomous flight once regulators and operators are comfortable. For now this system makes takeoff and landing much more manageable, eliminating the complex learning curve to master this new technology.

Hybrid-Electric vs. Battery Electric

Hybrid eVTOL outperforms battery eVTOL. Here’s why.

Hybrid technology provides for greater range, longer distances, more passenger capacity, lower environmental impact, and easier adoption. Energy density limitations on current battery technology represent limited use cases for other electric only VTOL aircraft, presenting substantial regulatory hurdles for certifications requiring minimum flight time. Battery only eVTOL also face constraints due to reliance on good weather.

With an average range of only 60 miles, battery-electric VTOL have little room for flexible flight routes. Routes of 100 miles or less won’t help with congestion, they will only cause more inefficiency in the air. Ground transportation is a better option for these short routes. Additionally, the charging infrastructure needed for battery eVTOL at scale is a key obstacle.

With 200 miles of all-electric flight and 750 miles of total hybrid range, the Odys Aviation VTOL enables substantial, practical CO2 reductions of 76% compared to regional jets. The environmental impact and savings cannot be serviced by any electric aircraft currently in development.

Developing Sustainable Air Travel

Advanced technology makes net-zero air mobility possible.

We are creating the blueprint for sustainable air travel. Our aircraft is capable of completing 52% of US domestic air routes. Yet, it produces roughly 76% less greenhouse gas emissions than a commercial, regional jet. On flights less than 200 miles, it can run on pure electric battery power to produce zero emissions. That's a game-changer that will reduce the airline industry's impact on the environment a great deal.

Where the Future Takes Flight

With our efficient hybrid-electric aircraft, Odys is creating a better way to fly, and we are excited to revolutionize the way you travel.
