The Guardian VTOL platform is the result of a multi-year scaled airframe development program beginning in 2018.

This tried and true methodology provides a level of quality that single aircraft development programs fail to achieve.

Each variant builds on significant bodies of data that inform all design decisions following that iteration of the platform.

As a result, we have the capability to produce the aircraft in a range of sizes to meet a range of use cases.

Our fully functional, flying scale models have been flown in extreme wind, rain and crash tested – allowing us to adapt and evolve the airframe with each iteration to significantly improve on the performance and usage characteristics.

As distinct from the approach taken by many investment driven eVTOL companies, who are generally moving to full scale with zero adverse weather testing and zero crash testing under their belt, our airframe and redundancy systems are significantly more durable in their design and deliver much higher levels of dependability and pilot protection than any other ultralight VTOL aircraft.
