Your New "Magic Carpet" Ride

The Epiphany FLYING CARpet is designed with extraordinary safety, utility and comfort in mind:

Turbo-Hybrid Propulsion

An advanced hybrid propulsion system provides quiet, ultra-efficient, and 100% reliable door-to-door personal transportation – without the need for roads or airports.

Safety In Numbers

Twin, state-of-the-art, turbo-generators provide electrical power to multiple ducted fans using safe (non-explosive) diesel or bio-fuel.

Fly-By-Wire

Fault-tolerant, computer fly-by-wire control and stability makes the craft simple to operate, rain or shine.

Backup Power

Seamless, reliable backup power always available to the fans in the unlikely event of generator power interruption.

Ground Maneuverable

Easily maneuverable by one person on the ground – the ducted fans can be flipped up reducing the ground footprint to that of a small car for easy garaging.

Stealth Development Timeline Already Completed, And Currently Underway…

COMPLETED: Full-scale ducted fan development and wind tunnel testing under a previous $5 Million DARPA contract with support from NASA Ames
COMPLETED: Preliminary design & engineering; component sourcing
2020 Q2-Q3: Final engineering; CAD construction drawings
2020 Q3-Q4:
Fabrication of full-scale prototype structural airframe
2021 Q1-Q4:
Final assembly of airframe, propulsion and ducted fans; begin ground & hover 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 and dedicated endeavor, one that you can become part of today. Join with these development partners in becoming a VIP sponsor for this exciting project.

Applied VTOL Concepts is seeking personal and corporate VIP Sponsors to help underwrite the continuing development of the Epiphany FLYING CARpet. Your cash, or “in kind” donation, will be used to help offset actual research and development costs incurred. Your donation will NOT be used to pay salaries or other benefits to the principals of the company. The company’s books and records will always be open for inspection by VIP Sponsors.

You will be part of a small, dedicated group of visionaries instrumental in the development of the world’s first, practical flying car. As a company VIP Sponsor, you will be invited to all development milestone celebrations, official press gatherings, and private demonstrations. Only with your approval, your name, or your company’s name, will be listed and publicized as an early VIP Sponsor of the project, or if you so choose, your name will be kept confidential. If the company offers an investment round in the future, you will receive a 20% discount on the share price for any funds you may choose to invest, subject to SEC and legal investment eligibility requirements. Lastly, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you helped support a remarkable undertaking, made in the USA, and with the potential of changing the way people travel. There may also be other future benefits to becoming a VIP Sponsor at this time.

The short answer is no. Think of your sponsorship as a gift. The company may choose to offer investment opportunities in the future and VIP Sponsors will have the first right of refusal. Accordingly, your donation will not be tax deductible, but it may be eligible as a bona fide business advertising expense having your company’s name shown on the aircraft, NASCAR style, subject to meeting certain donation levels. This document is not an offer to sell securities in the company.

You may become a VIP Sponsor by donating any amount of $50,000, or more. You will execute a simple Sponsorship agreement, and receive a receipt for your donation along with a certificate identifying you as a VIP Sponsor in the development of the Epiphany FLYING CARpet. The company is currently seeking VIP Sponsor donations totaling $500,000 to $750,000, in aggregate, to continue forward with the development work.

I am a visionary, an innovator, an engineer, a designer, an entrepreneur, a doer, and former Naval Aviator. As an award winning CEO and serial entrepreneur over the last 40+ years, I have been principally involved with numerous companies providing my unique combination of hands-on management, leadership and vision. Michael Moshier

Included in these was Trek Aerospace, the company I founded, which received a $5 million award from DARPA and support from NASA Ames, culminating in my company receiving Time Magazine’s Invention-of-the-Year Award for the Solo Trek XFV aircraft that I designed, and which my company developed. Separately, Talus Corporation, a 300 employee, contract manufacturing company that I headed up as CEO, received the honor of being listed in the San Jose Business Journal as one of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Privately-Held Companies – two years in a row!

Currently, as Chief Executive Officer & Chief Technical Officer of Applied VTOL Concepts, I spearhead the development of the Epiphany FLYING CARpet which I envisioned, and designed – a 20-year effort. My background in aerospace engineering and VTOL aircraft design is supplemented by my earlier service as a U.S. Navy jet pilot, along with my more recent piloting experience in both fixed-wing aircraft and rotary-wing aircraft.
