Kitty Hawk关停早期电动垂直起降飞行汽车项目

发表时间:2020-06-06 13:00:27    作者:飞行汽车    点击:

     据了解,Flyer是一种单座全电动垂直起降飞机,由10个独立的提升风扇提供动力,可以在离地3至10英尺高度的范围内飞行。这一项目的研发始于近五年前,公司总共建造了11架Flyer飞机,累计进行了超过2.5万次的飞行,包括有机组人员和无机组人员。至于放弃的原因,CEO Sebastian Thrun曾经在接受一次采访时表示,无论他们如何努力他们都无法为Flyer找到一个可行的业务路径。目前,Kitty Hawk Corporation正在裁掉Flyer70人团队中的大部分员工。公司方面表示,将有少数员工会被融入Heaviside项目。Heaviside是一款更强大的垂直起降(VTOL)飞行器,速度可达到180mph,续航里程约100英里,既可以手动也可以自动飞行,甚至可以在城市上空飞行。需要注意的是,在去年12月,Kitty Hawk已经将Cora项目剥离出来,并于波音联合成立了一家合资公司,加上此次结束Flyer项目,Heaviside也因此成为了公司当前的核心重点。

English version
    It is understood that flyer is a single seat all electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft, powered by 10 independent lift fans, which can fly in the range of 3 to 10 feet above the ground. The R & D of this project started nearly five years ago. The company has built 11 flyer aircraft and carried out more than 25000 flights in total, including crew and inorganic group. As for the reasons for giving up, CEO Sebastian Thrun once said in an interview that no matter how hard they tried, they could not find a feasible business path for flyer. Currently, Kitty Hawk Corporation is laying off most of flyer's 70 member team. The company said that a small number of employees will be integrated into the project. Heaviside is a more powerful VTOL vehicle, with a speed of 180mph and a range of about 100 miles. It can fly manually or automatically, or even over the city. It should be noted that in December last year, Kitty Hawk has spun off the Cora project and established a joint venture with Boeing. With the completion of flyer project, Heaviside has become the current core focus of the company.(图文编译/飞行汽车 w
