With High Performance
For takeoff, as the wing generates lift, active front suspension extends to set the take off pitch attitude
Dual Chamber Suspension: 10" of Travel
Easy to Fly
10" of travel in suspension can cushion landings up to a 4 degree approach path
No Flare Landing
HUD and velocity vector make lining up on the runway and maintaining a 3 degree approach path to touch down, easy
X-46 during sea trials. Example of a no-flare landing.
Split elevator blends roll control with pitch input for naturally coordinated turns
Flaps and Spoilers
Electrically actuated flaps and roll
spoilers on the wings keep the connection to the wing simple with no mechanical linkages
Automatic stabilizer trim maintains neutral pitch with flap and speed changes
Why do we typically fly one leg over long distances?
Imagine you had to rent a car whenever you exited the freeway. The time and hassle to coordinate a rental would change how and when you used the freeway. You’d only use it for long trips and one exit. That’s how we think about flying.
With the Firenze, multiple airport combinations can easily make your trip faster, conveniently, effortlessly, without the need to arrange ground transportation and transfer between vehicles at each airport.
Managing businesses across many locations? Multiple flights in one day around a metro area or between city combinations could be easy and effortless. A 2 hour drive in heavy traffic could be an enjoyable 10 minute flight.
What’s more, you can avoid traffic by landing at one airport and departing from another. You’ll never need to battle road congestion to get back to the airport where your aircraft is trapped.
Firenze is the effortless on-ramp to the jet-fast freeway in the sky with convenient access to a much bigger, more accessible world.
FIRENZE MAKES FLYING CONVENIENT
FIRENZE: A NEW CATEGORY IN TRANSPORTATION
Firenze is a new category in transportation.
Around the world, every day, thousands of professionals travel to remote locations far beyond rental cars and Uber drivers. This requires coordination of staged vehicles at the runway and a staffed remote camp to maintain them.
In the absence of staged vehicles, the only alternative is many hours driving hazardous rough roads. In northern Canada, Alaska and across the developing world, this is a daily reality.
Firenze changes that. With high clearance, large wheels, long travel suspension, high torque motors, and a massive onboard power supply, wherever professionals need to go, they’ll always have the wheels, wings, and power they need.
