Sirius Aviation AG Proposes Hydrogen VTOL Aircraft

The Sirius Jet May Take Flight In Two Versions

Swiss aviation startup Sirius Aviation AG has proposed their new Sirius Jet – which might become the world's first hydrogen-powered VTOL aircraft.

The Sirius Jet is described as a high-performance, zero-emission VTOL aircraft, propelled by a hydrogen-electric propulsion system. The company boasts of expectations that include extended flight distances, impressive speeds, and high altitudes at near-silent levels. 

Aiming for 2025, the Sirius Jet may take flight in two versions: Sirius Business Jet, tailored to private jet needs, and the Sirius Millennium Jet, crafted for commercial aviation. 

Sirius Jet Specifications: 

Sirius Business Jet: A zero-emission, hydrogen-powered VTOL business jet, featuring an 1150-mile flight range, cruise speed of 323 mph, altitude capability of 30,000 feet, ultra-quiet noise levels of 60 dBa, and accommodates 3 passengers.

Sirius Millenium Jet: A zero-emission, hydrogen-powered VTOL commercial aircraft, offering a 650-mile flight range, cruise speed of 323 mph, altitude capability of 30,000 feet, sound footprint of 60 dBa, and accommodates up to 5 passengers.

Sirius Aviation AG has disclosed partnerships with BMW Group's DesignWorks, Sauber Group, along with Alfleth Engineering AG, and ALD Group. 

Later this week, on Wednesday, January 17, 2024, Sirius Aviation AG will host an event at Payerne Airport in Switzerland, unveiling the aircraft's Hydrogen-Electric Ducted Fan Propulsion System with the first public inaugural ignition. 

Sirius Aviation AG, is headquartered in Switzerland and was established in 2021 by a family of legacy aviators.
