The key objective with the ALTI Transition was to offer a highly capable, reliable and affordable civil use commercial VTOL (vertical take-off and land) aircraft, which one could actually purchase and use every day, unlike the majority of similar system, available only to military at high price points.
The Transition is made from the highest-grade materials, to the highest standards using unique proprietary techniques. An advanced aerodynamic design with low stall speed, efficient cruise with very low drag, excellent stability in high winds and an incredibly low weight at only 5.6kg for the entire airframe.
The airframe is completely modular and can be rapidly deployed, from in the case to in the air in under 10 minutes with only two operators required, this along with zero need for a runway or bulky and expensive catapult systems, provides quicker and safer operation, anywhere, any time. The Transition is designed as a hybrid system allowing for a combination of multirotor flight and traditional fixed wing flight, providing the advantages of both aircraft types, the practicality of multirotor flight for take-off and landing, with the efficiency, range and endurance of a fixed wing aircraft. The incorporation of VTOL technology into the fixed wing system allows the Transition to take-off and land in confined spaces, in a very short time, offering a massive advantage over traditional systems as well as a lower impact and stress on the aircraft with long term use, usually associated with hard and unpredictable parachute or belly landings.
