The text & graphics shown here were submitted by Kestrel Aerospace Limited -



"The approach of Kestrel Aerospace Limited is simple and effective with a full, adaptable vehicle capable of removing road congestion, reducing emissions and providing a greatly increased spectrum of opportunities for military, civilian and business users around the globe. The design incorporates all the advantages of light aircraft and small helicopters, making it unique in this field".

"The aircraft has a unique patented propulsion system powered by a new type of lightweight rotary engine, situated internally. The engine uses a new technique for distributing power to the lift units."

"The Airframe has gear similar to a Blackhawk helicopter design. Two retractable landing gear units (one on each side of the airframe) are built in, and a tail wheel is built in to the base of the tail strut." The company presently (2005) offers various aeronautical services and in addition to the new VTOL, also plans to bring a new form of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle to the marketplace. It will serve as a reconnaissance and survey vehicle.
