Manta Aircraft, headquartered in Switzerland, manufactures hybrid and fully electric aircraft, and plans to revolutionize the industry with the latest version. ANN1 and ANN2 are single-seater and two-seater versions of the same aircraft, composed of carbon fiber composite materials and four ducted electric fans for propulsion. The aircraft combines the capabilities of aircraft and helicopters, and has the ability to hover in the air, flip backwards, take off and land vertically when needed. Manta sees ANN1 as an agile sports aircraft, and the extra space in ANN2 can turn it into a rescue boat or for law enforcement personnel. Manta has built a one-third scale model and plans to conduct flight tests this year. Click here for more details.
