VOLATUS AEROSPACE SECURES FIRST PRODUCTION DELIVERY SLOT FOR NATILUS LARGE REMOTELY PILOTED CARGO AIRCRAFT
Natilus is the leading developer of large autonomous cargo freighters designed to dramatically reduce both the cost and environmental impact of air freight. The Natilus N3.8T is the first in a family of next-generation freight aircraft. The twin-engine turboprop will have a maximum takeoff weight of 8,618 kg (19,000 lbs.), a maximum range of 1,667 km (1,035 miles) and is expected to carry a load of LD3 containers to a maximum weight of 3,855 kg (8,500 lbs.).
Whether the flight operations warrant a FAA-certified UAV or the aerospace regulations call for human pilot controls, Natilus will offer the ultimate flexibility and solution to the pilot shortage or regulations that stagnate traditional airline growth.
Moving Global Freight Forward
The Natilus N3.8T offers an estimated 60% more cargo volume than traditional aircraft of the same weight while reducing costs and carbon dioxide per pound by 50%. The aircraft has completed the second wind tunnel test and is expected to begin deliveries in 2025.
AVAILABLE AS 'FLY-BY-MOUSE' AIRCRAFT
The Future today
Volatus has already begun the journey into the autonomous cargo market with the introduction of the fully autonomous Avidrone product and the recent amalgamation with Partner Jet Inc. provides the commercial infrastructure needed to operate autonomous cargo services. Adding the Natilus aircraft establishes a long-term direction for Volatus unmanned cargo services.
