Your New Ride

The Epiphany PAV has been designed with extraordinary
safety, utility and comfort in mind:

Super-Efficient Propulsion

Proven-technology ducted fan thrusters, powered by state-of-the-art electric motors, provide quiet, ultra-efficient and reliable, door-to-door transportation – without the need for roads or airports

Safety In Numbers

The six ducted fan design, with fans nominally operating at a fraction of their capable power, allow the loss of one ducted fan while maintaining safe flight by increasing power on the other five fans

Fly-By-Wire

Triple-redundant, computer fly-by-wire control and stability, makes the vehicle simple to operate, with minimal training, rain or shine

Reliable Power

An onboard battery-management-system monitors the operation and health of the four, current technology lithium-ion battery packs which provide reliable DC power to the six motors. In the event of a problem with one of the batteries, the aircraft continues to operate normally, albeit with less flight time endurance

Ground Control

One person can easily maneuver the vehicle on the ground. The ducted fans can be flipped up reducing the ground footprint for garaging

Stealth Development Timeline Already Completed, And Currently Underway…

Epiphany-1 and Epiphany-2

COMPLETED: Full-scale ducted fan development and wind tunnel testing under a previous $5 Million DARPA contract with support from NASA
COMPLETED: Preliminary design & engineering; component sourcing; CAD construction drawings

Epiphany-1

2021 Q1: Final engineering, systems integration, CAD assembly drawings, and vendor part RFQ’s
2021 Q2: Fabrication of parts, structural airframe, and carbon fiber composite fuselage “shell”
2021 Q3: Final assembly of airframe, landing gear, internal components, ducted fans, composite shell
2021 Q4: Begin ground, hover, and flight testing

Applied VTOL Concepts is on a fast-track mission to continue development work on the first practical flying car, or as we like to think of it, a magical “Flying Carpet” reminiscent of Aladdin folklore. However, this is not magic. It is a serious endeavor, being carried out by a small, dedicated, agile team of seasoned VTOL aircraft designers, engineers and visionaries.
