Skyryse Reveals Helicopter Featuring Single Control Stick and Dual Screens

Skyryse Reveals Helicopter Featuring Single Control Stick and Dual Screens

Introducing the Skyrise One, the first production helicopter in the world that runs on a single stick and dual touch screens. Its patented operating system, SkyOSTM, which provides simplified control and a triply-redundant fly-by-wire system independent of the aircraft, powers the revolutionary controls.

It is currently the world’s most integrated, raised, and straightforward aircraft—it is no longer just a helicopter. Skyryse was able to start from scratch with a completely new cockpit design by replacing the mechanical controls that had been in place for decades and eliminating hundreds of possible sites of aircraft failure.

SkyOS – The simplest, safest, and smartest system in the sky.

The highly automated SkyOS system brings a new level of simplicity and safety to general aviation. For example, here are just a few of the many first-of-its-kind features found in the Skyryse One:

  • Fly-By-Wire Flight System: This isn’t autopilot, it’s a true full four-axis flight control system flown with our SkyOS operating system and fly-by-wire.
  • Dynamic Envelope Protection: Continuously combining pilot inputs, environmental conditions, aircraft status, and flight parameters to keep you in a safe envelope – simply. The interactive and triply-redundant flight control system provides a level of aviation safety usually found only in fighter jets and airliners.
  • Fully Automated Autorotation: Skyryse SkyOS quickly recognizes a power failure and automatically enters into an autorotation, automating the glide, flare, and set-down, with the pilot in control.
  • Auto-Pickup and Set-Down: The Skyryse One will auto-pickup and set-down at a pilot’s command with just one simple swipe on the screen.
  • Hover Assist: Traditional helicopters require a complex synchronization of all four controls. Skyryse SkyOS simplifies all that, assisting pilots by maintaining a hover at their command (without hands or feet!).
  • Inherent Stability: Because Skyryse One is continuously stabilized by SkyOS, you can let go of the controls at any time and the aircraft will stay inside a safe flight envelope.
  • Swipe-to-Start: Traditional helicopters are also started through a lengthy multi-step startup procedure. The Skyryse One automates all of that, allowing a pilot to start the engine by swiping right on the screen.
  • IFR-Capable: The Skyryse One will be fully certified for Instrument Flight Rules, at half the cost of an IFR-certified helicopter.

Fly-by-wire and flight control software work together seamlessly to eliminate complicated mechanical controls and replace them with a single, four-axis control stick similar to an F-35. This is what Skyryse has done. Combining two user-friendly touch screens with a single control stick, the conventional complicated array of boxes, switches, and indications is removed. The Skyryse One cockpit puts the pilot fully in command while freeing them from mundane, error-prone chores. Skyryse One restores peace of mind to simply enjoy the flight.

Reservations for the Skyryse One, which cost just $2,500 and are non-transferable and fully refundable, will open up on the Skyryse website today. For a limited time, the first clients can secure their Skyryse One First Edition aircraft for a mere $1,800,000, which does not include any extra interior or livery customizations they may choose. The price of the Skyryse One after these First Edition units will depend on production schedule and line position.

Boeing 777-9 Begins Certification Flight Testing with FAA Onboard

Boeing 777-9 Begins Certification Flight Testing with FAA Onboard

The 777-9 has commenced certification flight testing at Boeing Field in Seattle. This is a crucial step under the supervision of our regulator to certify the airplane and deliver it to customers worldwide.

Amidst Boeing’s current challenges, the B777X stands out as a project that could revitalize the brand. It is highly anticipated, and Boeing is keen to clear FAA certifications to release it as soon as possible.

Boeing has announced that the 777X will be used for both passenger and freighter services, depending on customer requirements.

Boeing’s 777X program has achieved a major milestone with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granting approval to begin certification flight tests, marking a significant step towards the aircraft’s entry into commercial service.

Following Airbus’ breakthrough with Korean Air, Reuters reported in April that Korean Air was considering a new Boeing order focused on the 777X, an advanced version of the 777 mini-jumbo.

Boeing 777-9 First certification

The first certification flight test of the 777-9 took place on Friday evening, with FAA personnel onboard alongside Boeing’s pilots and flight test team.

According to The Seattle Times, the aircraft departed from Boeing Field shortly after 6 p.m. and landed nearly two hours later after flying along the Washington and Oregon coast.

The 777X, an upgraded version of the successful 777 twinjet, features new engines and carbon composite wings with folding wingtips to accommodate standard airport gates.

The first variant, the 777-9X, is designed to carry 426 passengers in a two-class configuration for long-haul international flights.

Boeing B777x total orders

Boeing has secured 481 orders for the aircraft, with Emirates being the largest customer, having ordered over 200 units. The planemaker has already built and stored 22 777X jets, with an additional six in various stages of assembly in Everett, Washington.

Boeing is close to finalizing a significant deal to sell approximately two dozen 777X jets to Korean Air, with an estimated value ranging from $4 billion to $6 billion, as reported by Reuters.

Industry sources suggest that the agreement could be concluded as early as the Farnborough Airshow in July. Korean Air, South Korea’s largest airline, has been in discussions about returning to Boeing for its long-haul aircraft needs.

The Boeing 777X vs A350 is one of the most popular comparisons among aircraft as of now. The Airbus A350 has been operating for more than eight years, and its promising performance helps airlines in terms of efficiency and customer satisfaction, particularly in noise and vibrations.

The next generation Boeing 777X can fulfill the same requirements, with 777x first delivery given to Emirates Airlines, the launch customer for this aircraft. It remains to be seen how the Boeing 777X vs Airbus A350 will compete against each other in the future.
