Skyfly and Embention Join Forces in New Collaboration

Embention, a company with over 15 years of experience in developing high-performance avionics systems and motor controllers for electric aircraft and eVTOLs that comply with DO178C and DO254 aeronautical certification standards, is working in close collaboration with the United Kingdom-based eVTOL manufacturer, Skyfly. Skyfly’s electric/hybrid eVTOL, called the Axe, is a manned fixed-wing aircraft capable of vertical and conventional takeoff and landing. The Axe’s innovative canard fixed-wing design allows it to glide and take off vertically without the need to rotate wings or engines, thanks to the integration of the Veronte Autopilot 4x, which features advanced flight controls for automatic stabilization.

The Axe’s main features include a 9:1 glide ratio, non-rotating wings and engines to reduce complexity and weight, a 4x redundant Veronte Autopilot flight control system, 4 redundant flight systems, 8 electric motors (2 per wing for hover redundancy), and 16 redundant lithium-ion batteries. The Axe is scheduled to complete its first manned flights later this year and enter production in 2024, offering an eco-friendly, efficient, and safe alternative to private helicopter travel.

Embention’s Veronte Autopilot 4x is a critical component in the Axe’s flight control system and compliance with DO178C and DO254 standards ensures eVTOL certification for integration into UAM environments. The Veronte Autopilot 4x has passed environmental tests and features an advanced arbitration system that ensures redundancy and reliability, even in the event of an arbitrator’s failure. The Axe’s design prioritizes pilot safety, and the aircraft integrates extensively tested components from traditional aeronautical design.
