Sincere apologies. Our discussion forum was attacked by spammers in May - thousands of fake accounts and tens of thousands of fake postings were created by spam bots. It has taken a while to get this cleaned up but we back open for discussion!

 

I'm thinking abut buy a Hexa.
Can you make a contract with me?
from Japan Gifu prefecture.
Please send me mails or your company'S news.
Please sell in japan.
we are waiting for you.

Thanks for the interest. We're initially focussing on the U.S. because of the Ultralight rules in the U.S. but will explore other market as soon as we can.

I was hoping to see Hexa at Oshkosh. Sorry to hear that you couldn't make it. I had a meeting with Marcus Leng from Opener about flying the Blackfly from my approved facility in San Diego. Do you have any interest in flying the Hexa from there?

Yes, we would have liked to have exhibited there but it would have delayed our flight test program, and we're 100% focussed on bringing this to market and getting our 25 city roadshow under way as soon as possible.

 

Interested to learn more about your San Diego facility.

I have been sending emails and leaving messages and have not heard back from anyone. I signed up for a demo in New Orleans back on June 1. Secondly I have a 13 acre facility in greater New Orleans that you could possibly use for a demo flight site, and I am also interested in partnering to offer rides at amusement events - I have left messages and emails about all 3 of these questions but have not gotten any response

Hi David, I see a few messages from you into our Partners inbox. We are going through those in priority order based on demand in our top cities. Apologies for not getting back to you yet on those, but New Orleans is currently lower in priority based on the advance reservation demand we're seeing. We created a forum for each city where interested people can post ideas: https://www.liftaircraft.com/forums/new-orleans-la

@Matthew Chasen as I also said I have a facility that can be used for flights - I am on the board of directors and the PR chairman for the Shriners in SE Louisiana - adjacent to our bldg we own 13 acres that are currently used for multiple soccer fields - in addition I could handle all publicty - give me a call - I am a former Navy Pilot

What is the climb rate with a 175lb pilot? What is the service ceiling? What energizes the ballistic parachute upon electrical failure to the rotors? What, if any, glide ratio has been demonstrated in a loss of propulsion? What is the maximum wind component in any direction? What is weight of the battery system inclusive of the power packs? What is the battery charge cycle time? What happens when the battery compartment reaches a critical temperature? Are you utilizing Part 103 (1)(e)(1)language to allocate the battery compartment as a float to keep the weight within Part 103? Does the investor pool have some influential lobbyist(s) to convince Congress like Amazon is at present for operations within controlled airspace to effect the quote from the DJI rep about democratizing human flight? I am very interested in your perspectives on "license-less" flight consistent with your marketing statements alluding to ground transportation delay avoidance through your product vision. The original concept behind the establishment of ultralight was very different than selling a product to have an effective alternative to metro traffic snarl. I look forward to monitoring your progress both on the viability (operating time) and regulatory. You may have found a niche under Part 103....to get started. The vision of the airspace filled with unlicensed pilots is apt to have some turbulence along the way.

"Create new post" still isn't working for me. I click on the post button and nothing happens.

Hi Mo Bius! Just checked with our site provider - they tell me that you have to be logged in. Happy to coordinate on this further - please shoot me a note at support@liftaircraft.com and we can figure it all out. Thanks!

I'm logged in when I try to post, but still nothing. Anyway, I just wanted to ask a basic question. Do you have any plans on making your VR sim available publicly on Steam or Oculus as a promotional tool? It would be fun to take it for a virtual spin before LIFT comes to my town.

@Mo Bius thanks for asking! It's not a bad question. We actually do have something in the works, but it's still early days, so stay tuned. It's a great idea - thanks for asking :)

What is the weight limit for the pilot

Hey Matt David Nelson here from New York what is the weight limit for the pilot

Hi David, the current limit is 220 lb. (We're always here at support@liftaircraft.com too - never hesitate to reach out with any specific questions - always happy to help) Have a great weekend!

@Matt Chasen, I paid for a test flight in Phoenix back in May 10, 2019 and I have not received any information regarding the status of the test flight. I understand that you are going through location priorities but how can I get some information of the product and the status.

Hi Jesus - we're working through a lot of important safety tests right now. Keep an eye on our blog (upper right corner of the site) - we'll be posting more there soon. And of course, with any questions, feel free to email us at support@liftaircraft.com - can't wait to fly with you!

I repeatedly try to create a post to no avail. Also, the text was doubled up. Perhaps it's using an Android phone, I'm not sure.

 

My question is this, what about a hybrid?

What about a single gasoline engine to provide battery charging and a longer flight time? Call it the Airprius!

Thanks R S! This is on my list for our web provider. Thank you for the feedback - very helpful. As for a hybrid, it's something that has been suggested and considered, but the ultralight weight constraint is fierce. It's also really nice to be zero-emissions. (If I had a nickel for the lead I've inhaled from general aviation planes...)

Hi Matt, First to all Congratulation I have been waiting for someone to invented something like this, something a little bigger than my, DJI mavic Pro, I just reserved two spot to test Fly the New Hexa Lift Aircraft around New York State, I can't wait. See it to believe it? I have few questions:

1) Are you planing to make two seaters lift Aircraft?

2)like the Mavic Drone, how long the batteries last on each Fly?

3) it reads that to fly the Lift Aircraft, a person has to weight less than 250 pounds, for the future, that means if a person weight less, than 250 lbs can also take small luggage inside the plane?

4)it also read, parachutes, in case something happens, how the parachute, works?

5) The landing Gear, can land on water too? there its no videos landing on the water?

6) Its there a luggage compartment to stove small items?

7) I created a lift aircraft account, under my orders it says no previous order, even-though I purchased two test fly lessons, how can I see my orders?

Hi Jaime! Kevin here from LIFT Support. Can't wait for you to fly with us! See below as I've done my best to answer your questions.

 

1) Are you planing to make two seaters lift Aircraft?

Our first aircraft is a one-seater - in the future, we are open to new designs.

 

2)like the Mavic Drone, how long the batteries last on each Fly?

Early flights are 8 to 15 minutes. For entertainment, this is actually really long (think of an 8-minute skydive/roller-coaster/ski run). That said, we hope to develop greater range over time.

 

3) it reads that to fly the Lift Aircraft, a person has to weight less than 250 pounds, for the future, that means if a person weight less, than 250 lbs can also take small luggage inside the plane?

 

Right now, we're doing only entertainment flights, (FAA Ultralight regs are for recreation/sport). In the future, anything's possible.

 

4)it also read, parachutes, in case something happens, how the parachute, works?

The parachute is an extremely important piece of safety gear. Much like the Cirrus Aircraft Parachute System, our system (not made by Cirrus), carries the entire aircraft to the ground. It's not the most graceful landing, but it sure beats the alternatives.

 

5) The landing Gear, can land on water too? there its no videos landing on the water?

 

Our floats work. We are in the midst of fully testing amphibious capabilities. We believe that this will be possible, but we need to confirm this in a variety of scenarios before framing it that way.

 

6) Its there a luggage compartment to stove small items?

 

Entertainment first, so no luggage.

 

7) I created a lift aircraft account, under my orders it says no previous order, even-though I purchased two test fly lessons, how can I see my orders?

 

Our website has that issue right now, which we are working to resolve. Super appreciate the feedback there. Feel free to email us at support@liftaircraft.com and I can send you what I see on our end (I see both your orders here from this month). Thanks for your questions and have a great week! - Kevin // LIFT Support.
