COAXIAL COUNTER ROTATING
BLADES IN A DUCT ALLOW LOWER DRAG AND HIGHER THRUST
Such configuration, heritage of the Soviet aviation, forms the DNA of our aircraft and promises high energy efficiency, redundancy and smaller footprint. It will result in better accessibility and lower operational costs both on the ground and in flight.

Powered by hydrogen fuel cells, our aircraft will have up to four times the range of a battery powered modification. This means intercity flights. We teamed up with the automotive engineers to meld aviation safety with the ultimate passenger comfort of an automobile.

The aerodynamically shaped cabin provides lift for additional flight efficiency (thus lower fares), makes the aircraft elegant and its interiors even more spacious. Specifically designed and meticulously positioned windows offer spectacular views. Propellers are shrouded and safe; electric propulsion is environmentally friendly. These features will ensure the safer, faster, and cleaner commute, which we all dream about.

our
vision

Flight has already become cheap.

Developments in energy systems, composite materials and computational power enable aircraft configurations that put us on track towards an inevitable disruptive transition. Much like a century ago we abandoned horses for cars, we are leaving cars for VTOLs.

While regulators are preparing the legal and operational environment to scale the adoption of the massive electric passenger and cargo transport, we are building our electric VTOL aircraft to be affordable and widely available.

At our core we are a team of certified aviation engineers with a solid track record of making and certifying passenger jets for civil aviation. We see how our skills will help to leave behind the congestion, pollution, exhaustion, length and complexity of ground transportation.

We see the future where an on-demand aircraft arrives to pick you up at a take-off pad no farther than 7-minutes walking distance and provides safe and fast access to hundred times more opportunities, than our car does today. We shall no longer decline a job, a hobby or a relationship because of a longer commute.

We want this ultimate freedom to always get to the right place at the right time. We want to “give a lift” to humanity.

take off and landing

autonomous aerial vehicle

Bartini is an electric VTOL-
that is efficient both on the ground and in flight: takes a space of two car parking lots and uses aerodynamic lift
It has a carrying body that provides aerodynamic lift in cruise mode after the aircraft takes-off, gains ground speed and tilts the rotors perpendicular to the ground. The aircraft is designed to fly at 300 km/hr (162 knots). Hydrogen fuel cell modification shall cover the distance of up to 550 km over almost 2 hours, while lithium battery modification will range 150 km on 30 minutes of flight. At least double redundancy of power and units, duplication of nodes, very few moving parts, and ducts around the blades shall result in ultimate safety. The configuration allows for considerable noise control. The configuration is intended to serve the interests of the three major stakeholders: the city, the operator, and the passenger. The aircraft shall operate within a wide variety of perimeter variables. Engineering and design excellence is achieved through strong collaboration across aircraft engineering, automotive and mobility systems design, urban planning, air traffic management and ground infrastructure operations.
