Commuter Craft Innovator Aircraft Goes Alpha In 2016

Pre-Production Flight Tests Completed, Kits Available This Fall

Commuter Craft has successfully completed pre-production flight tests of Innovator ShipOne and is starting production with six “AlphaShips” this fall. These first production aircraft will be customer built in the Commuter Craft Facility under the Experimental aircraft category. This will be followed by construction of eight “BetaShip” aircraft, leading to full general production in 2017. Commuter Craft began taking position reservations in April of this year, and will continue to offer its pre-production special until September 2016.

The Innovator is a next generation two-place aircraft designed to provide best-in-class performance and safety features not found in other general aviation aircraft. Featuring a three-surface blend wing, lifting body airframe, the Innovator top speed is over 200 miles per hour, with a 180 hp. engine and fixed landing gear. The unique configuration is inherently stall and spin resistant while providing excellent low speed handling. The 60” wide cabin and variable geometry seats provide comfort for pilots from 5’0 to 6’9 tall, with ample room for baggage. Fully loaded, the Innovator has a range of 800 nautical miles.

To make aviation more affordable and accessible, Commuter Craft designed the Innovator airframe to EAB category requirements. The aircraft kits will be customer built in 2 to 3 weeks in our 82,000 sq. ft. facility, utilizing factory tooling. The Factory Builder Program saves time and money, eliminating the cost of expensive tools or dedicated build space. The build process is primarily assembly and bonding with very little fabrication. A dedicated technician is provided for each builder to insure quality and proper technique. Upon completion of the airframe, factory options are available for engine, propeller, instruments, interior and paint packages to finish the Innovator aircraft in as little as three months total, compared to the average kit built time of seven years.

Commuter Craft was formed in 2006 and has established its world headquarters and factory in Cartersville, Georgia. The Innovator is first in a planned line of personal transportation vehicles designed to provide leading edge technology, performance, efficiency and utility for the next generation and beyond.
