rFlight is a team of passionate engineers that are developing the rWing, a delta wing design that enables vertical liftoff. rWing is powered by an internal combustion engine with two coaxial propellers. The design includes semi-autonomous controls and intelligent UI for intuitive interaction and easy maintenance. The team developed a system capable of a cruising speed greater than 100 knots to achieve horizontal flight.
rFlight is competing in the GoFly Prize - sponsored by Boeing, GoFly is an international competition pushing the boundaries of innovation, engineering, and transportation. This event encourages innovators, inventors, and engineers to develop and build a personal flying device that can be used by anyone, anywhere. The goal of the GoFly Prize is to foster the development of safe, quiet, ultra-compact personal flying devices capable of vertical take off and landing (VTOL), and which can fly 20 miles without refueling or recharging while carrying a single person.
