SureFly Hybrid Electric Manned Multi-Copter Scheduled to Fly At AirVenture

Will Take Place During Innovation Day Program July 24

Workhorse Group , an American technology company focused on providing sustainable and cost-effective solutions to the commercial transportation sector, announced that its SureFly Multi-Copter is scheduled to fly on Tuesday, July 24 during the Innovations Day session at the EAA AirVenture fly-in at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The manned flight will take place with an all-electric SureFly test vehicle from 3:03 to 3:08 p.m. Central Time, during the event's daily airshow.  

"We are thrilled to fly this year at EAA AirVenture after introducing SureFly for the first time at last year's event," said Steve Burns, CEO of Workhorse Group. "As we work with the FAA through the Type Certification process, we appreciate the opportunity to publicly demonstrate our exciting progress at the World's Greatest Air Celebration."

The SureFly is a two-place hybrid-electric eVTOL multi-copter aircraft developed by Workhorse in Loveland, Ohio. It is designed to carry about 400 pounds of payload approximately 70 miles, at a speed of about 70 miles per hour, day or night. The aircraft utilizes a fly-by-wire flight control system designed to maintain the flight envelope of the aircraft. With eight independent motors, each driving its own rotor system, the aircraft has the system redundancy required to land safely should a motor fail. A parachute deploys as the final backup, should the aircraft encounter an unsafe situation.
