Manta Ann eVTOL Aircraft
Switzerland-based Manta Aircraft makes hybrid-electric and all-electric aircraft with plans to revolutionize the industry with their newest release. The ANN1 & ANN2 are single and double seat versions of the same aircraft, constructed with carbon composite and four ducted electric fans for propulsion. The craft combines airplane and helicopter capabilities into one, with the ability to take off and land vertically. The two-seat ANN2 will have a range of 373 miles and a top speed of 186 MPH, with certification expected to come in 2023. Italian medical transport company Avionord has signed a contract to purchase 15 ANN2 models for its fleet, using them to transport organs for transplant.
