For decades, the idea of net-zero aviation was only a dream. Odys Aviation is making it a reality. The aviation industry is one of the fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions. The widespread use of conventional jet fuel paired with growing aviation demand is only serving to worsen the climate crisis. Odys Aviation will make clean air travel accessible. We're developing tomorrow's hybrid-electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, capable of reducing CO2 emissions by 76% compared to regional jets. We’re building a sustainable alternative to traditional air travel.
At its peak in 2020, the global airline industry produced over 900 million metric tons of CO2 emissions. With so much focus on climate change and a limited supply of fossil fuels, there's a lot at risk. Change needs to happen to achieve a more sustainable future.
The United States Department of Energy continually invests in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) research. The use of sustainable aviation fuel is on the rise, showing great promise. Biofuels can achieve many of the same performance capabilities as traditional jet fuel while reducing aviation emissions. Odys Aviation’s hybrid-electric engine is poised to make use of sustainable fuels while furthering electric air travel.
Odys Aviation is paving the way for a more sustainable future of flight. We are making air travel more efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly. Our VTOL aircraft uses advanced technology that is a clear win for passengers, airlines, communities, and the environment.
The heart of our VTOL aircraft is a hybrid-electric propulsion system. It operates similarly to the systems in hybrid cars, storing electricity in batteries and achieving flight with all-electric operations. The system uses electric only propulsion on short distances and uses the aviation turbine only on longer routes. The Odys Aviation aircraft can reduce emissions by as much as 76% on a per passenger mile basis compared to regional jets, offering a more sustainable alternative without sacrificing range or diminishing the passenger experience.
The Odys Aviation aircraft has a maximum range of 750 miles. During the first 200 miles of travel, the aircraft operates entirely on electrical power. As a result, short regional flights can have zero emissions, turning regular business travel into a sustainable endeavor. Plus, Odys lets you eliminate ground travel further reducing CO2.
At Odys Aviation, we are building towards a future of true net-zero air travel. Our VTOL aircraft eliminates carbon emissions on short-range flights under 200 miles. While longer missions use either sustainable aviation fuel or jet fuel, we still produce 76% less CO2 on 300 mile routes. Airlines can dramatically reduce their carbon footprint on some busiest corridors by switching some of their flights to Odys. The technology will pave the way for new, emission-free routes that circumvent standard airports entirely.
Traditional aircraft are extremely noisy, often reaching 140 decibels during takeoff. This can have negative effects on nearby communities, complicate airline operations, and detract the magical experience of flight. The Odys aircraft can take off and land with electric only operation and is vastly quieter, benefiting communities, operators, and passengers alike.
We're building the most efficient aircraft imaginable. Our goal is to turn the aviation industry on its head while positively impacting the environment and leading the way to a sustainable future. Our propulsion technologies and flight solutions provide a better way to travel, whether short-hop flights to city centers for sustainable business travel or long-range travel to destinations hundreds of miles away.
The Odys aircraft has a maximum range of 750 miles. It can travel at heights of 30,000 feet, speeding through the air at top speeds of 345 miles per hour. The vertical takeoff and landing capabilities also offer impressive versatility. The hybrid-electric propulsion system doesn't need thousands of feet of runway to take off and land safely. Instead, the aircraft can use helicopter pads and vertiports.
Our aircraft can easily integrate into existing airports and utilize vertiports closer to city centers. The development of new vertical takeoff facilities will open new routes, provide more convenient destinations for passengers, and more.
The future of flight isn't larger planes that can hold more passengers. Tomorrow's aviation industry must focus on sustainability and the ongoing push to reduce carbon emissions. Odys Aviation is already there. Our expert engineers have decades of experience in aerospace technology. We look at the aviation sector through the lens of sustainability, allowing us to develop technologies that will take us into a new era of cleaner skies, environmentally friendly operations, and sustainable flying.
Help us decarbonize the airline industry and achieve net-zero aviation. At Odys Aviation, we're committed to helping the world make strides in its quest to be green. Our VTOL aircraft makes the future of flying more convenient, cost-effective, and sustainable.
