NEO Aeronautics is incorporated in 2018 with the focus to design and produce manned personal aerial vehicle (PAV) that is safe, reliable, and affordable; and to build Urban Aerial Mobility (UAM) communities globally.
Since the company’s inception, we have developed two prototypes, Crimson S8, of the PAV as proof of concept. Covid-19 has slowed down our product development. With the opening of the economy, we are ready to build flight trial and certification version.
Currently, the regulations in Singapore does not allow for personal aerial vehicles to be operated in the open, thus we plan to test and certify the vehicle in the United States. The unmanned version will be tested in Singapore.
As the PAV is developed as an “ultralight vehicle” under the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 103 rules, anyone would be able to use it. Under US law, operators of ultralight vehicles do not need a pilot licence.
Apart from using it as a personal mode of transport from point to point, we are also plan to roll out the PAVs for the tourism market.
We plan to have the vehicle built and tested locally in an unmanned mode in October 2022. Thereafter, we will test and certify the vehicle in manned mode in United States in early 2023. Our goal is to have 1,000 of our PAVs in 25 cities making 50 million trips yearly.
