Horten HX-2 Flying Wing Plans Trip To AirVenture

Plane Was First Shown To The Public At AERO 2019 In Germany

Horten Aircraft plans to bring its HX-2 flying wing prototype to AirVenture this summer after being first displayed to the public at AERO 2019 in Friedrichshafen, Germany in February.

According to the company Facebook page, HORTEN Aircraft GmbH was founded at the end of 2015 by Sven Lindig, Bernhard Mattlener and Hans Heinen. Meanwhile, Flight Design general aviation and Rotorvox are also part of the aviation brand LIFT Air. Our headquarters are located at the Eisenach-Kindel airfield (EDGE).

The name "HORTEN Aircraft GmbH" was chosen in honour of the visionary aircraft engineer Dr. Reimar Horten (1915-1994). He is regarded as a pioneer in the field of flying wings and supported the development of the predecessor prototypes PUL-9 and PUL-10 with calculations, which Bernhard Mattlener helped to develop in the early nineties. Even though the Horten brothers made their talent available to the German Luftwaffe in World War II, there is no connection on our part to this tragic part of German history.

However, we are convinced of his flying wing concept and see him as a pioneer of all Delta concepts, which is why we like to bear the name of the aviation legend HORTEN and thus cultivate the legacy of Dr. Reimar Horten.

Like you, we look forward to learning more about the HX-2 at AirVenture this summer.
