Kaman AeroSpace To Build Vy 400 High Speed VTOL Aircraft

Transcend Air Selects Kaman Corporation Subsidy For The Project

Designed with cost and time reduction in mind, the Vy 400 design may be set to give Transcend Air access to regional, city-to-city travel with its vertical takeoff and landing potential. 

Gregory Bruell, Co-Founder and CEO of Transcend Air said, “Because of the Vy’s high speed, we can complete many more passenger trips per aircraft. The combination of that with VTOL is key to our revolutionary economics, and Kaman will be key to us scaling up production to meet the huge demand that our mass market fares will drive.”

According to the company, the high-speed Vy 400 travels over 400 miles per hour, making the journey from Manhattan to Boston in 36 minutes.

Russ Bartlett, Kaman’s Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer noted, “Viewed from our unique rotorcraft market experience as both a helicopter manufacturer and a major supplier to other aerospace manufacturers, the Vy 400’s advantages in both civil and military applications are compelling.” 

Bartlett continued, “Transcend Air has over 250 years of collective VTOL experience informing both the aircraft design and their go-to-market strategy. Kaman Aerospace Group has components and subsystems on nearly every rotorcraft flying today and we look forward to the opportunity to be part of this innovative aircraft with Kaman’s singular blend of historical achievements and cutting-edge capabilities.”

Peter Schmidt, Co-Founder and COO of Transcend Air, added, “On the day it is certified, the Vy 400 will simultaneously become the world’s fastest helicopter AND the world’s fastest single-engine civil turboprop – with Kaman structures, subsystems, and assembly making it possible.”
