Attempting to revolutionize air mobility in Africa, Phractyl has designed Macrobat, a futuristic concept of personal aerial vehicle. The company says that they were really enjoying the process of designing a futuristic flying car, but the main focus of this aircraft remains the same, that is to address Africa’s most critical transportation challenges. This refers to mobility of people and cargo to hard-to-reach areas, especially when they don’t have any land-based transport infrastructure. Powered by 100% green, electric propulsion technology, Macrobat Personal Flying Plane supports our immediate global need to reduce carbon emissions without sacrificing its performance and safety.
It looks like a bird, but it’s a plane! Macrobat eVTOL from Phractyl is named after a mammal, microbat, which typically has large ears and feeding primarily on insects. This personal eVTOL has innovative wings which are able to generate lift even at low speeds, to make sure better safety, controlled landings, regardless the state of propulsion system. Due to pivotal wing design, it is ideal to categorize Macrobat as Electric Near-Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eNVTOL), it promises awesome performance even from uneven terrain.
Macrobat is designed with high flexibility, it can be piloted by a person, remotely piloted while carrying a passenger or cargo. It has maximum range of 150km and maximum speed of 180km/h, as a one-person flying vehicle, Macroboat can accommodate up to 150kg payload.
