Strategy for SkyDrive eVTOL

Arnaud Coville, our Chief Development Officer, talks about features and unique sales point of the SKYDRIVE (SD-05).
In Interview 1, he will speak about the feasibility of urban air mobility, while Interview 2 will focus on the advantages of our patent-pending rotor dome design and the rotor configuration. 

Vision of Osaka

Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) is included in the master plan for Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan. In February 2023, SkyDrive was selected as a company to participate in Advanced Air Mobility “Smart Mobility Expo” project.

Technological Milestone

SkyDrive’s commercial eVTOL aircraft is currently under development. In October 2021, its type certification application was accepted by the Japan’s Civil Aviation Bureau (“JCAB”). In June 2024, the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) in the United States also accepted its certification application.

CONCEPT

SD-05

The SD-03 flying car prototype successfully performed the first-ever public manned test flight in August 2020 at SkyDrive’s testing site in Toyota City in central Japan. Characterized by contra-rotating propeller (CRP) technology, the aircraft features four counter-rotating propellor units — 2 propellors in each unit, 8 total — mounted at the four corners of the fuselage. The SD-03 fuselage is one of the world’s most compact and generates enough lift to carry a person with a maximum takeoff weight of approximately 400 kg (881 lb).

SD-XX

The SD-XX flying car is a concept model envisioned by SkyDrive to provide door-to-door air mobility. Our aim is to create a two-seat, ultra-compact flying car that allows take-offs and landings in small areas, including convenience store parking lots and building rooftops. Additionally, our development path envisions a flying car that also can be driven on land to enable true point-to-point mobility to any destination.
