Presentation for academic projects
File:2020 09 Méca vol VTOL Estaca Laval ISPEB.pptx

The project is to develop the first hybrid VTOL aircraft. It started in January 2015 with a first study on concepts and we ended with several mock-ups of what it should be like.
At the end of 2016, project entered TRL2 with selection of detailed concepts on the product.
2017 made the project gain credibility thanks to the universities and industrials joining the project.
And by summer 2017, the project entered TRL3 with a first scale model.
Objective is now to go on a first demonstrator by 2018 !
