"The Company was founded in 1990 as a business entity to design, develop, manufacture and market personal vertical takeoff and landing
aircraft (VTOL). The company has researched, designed, developed and integrated all the essential technologies required for an automobile
sized VTOL roadable aircraft. These include 3D computer flight control systems, navigation control, efficient ducted fan designs, thrust
vectoring system and aerodynamically stable composite airframe structures. There have been several significant spin-off technologies from
this research. They are the 3D navigation system, the 4 X 4 hybrid power system, and the flight and drive control system."
"Our purpose is to research, design, and build personal air transport vehicles that are as safe, efficient, and as easy-to-use as an
automobile, and would not be constrained by existing transportation networks. They will provide quick and easy transport to any destination.
These vehicles will have low environmental impact in terms of noise, emissions, and fuel consumption. Along with the vehicle's efficient
power system, the ability to fly and drive in our nation's skys and highway systems makes it the all important next step into the future
of transportation. It will be a fundamental turning point in transportation history."
