THE ALTI TRANSITION

The key objective with the ALTI Transition was to offer a highly capable, reliable and affordable civil use commercial VTOL (vertical take-off and land) aircraft, which one could actually purchase and use every day, unlike the majority of similar system, available only to military at high price points.

The Transition is made from the highest-grade materials, to the highest standards, using unique propitiatory techniques. A highly advanced aerodynamic design allows for low stall speeds, efficient cruise with very low drag, excellent stability and an incredibly low weight at only 5.6kg for the entire airframe.

The airframe is completely modular and can be rapidly deployed from in the case to in the air in under 10 minutes with only two operators required, this along with zero need for a runway or heavy and expensive catapult systems, provides a quicker and safer operation, anywhere, any time. The Transition is designed as a hybrid system allowing for a combination of multirotor flight and traditional fixed wing flight, providing the best of both aircraft types, the practicality of multirotor flight for take-off and landing, with the efficiency, range and endurance of a fixed wing aircraft. The incorporation of VTOL technology into the fixed wing system allows the Transition to take-off and land in confined spaces in a very short time offering a massive advantage over traditional systems as well as a lower impact and stress on the aircraft with long term use, usually associated with catapult launchers and hard and unpredictable parachute landings.

The Transition’s airframe is designed by a South African Civil Aviation Authority approved Aeronautical Design Organisation, featuring a 3m dihedral wingspan, aerodynamic winglets and boom-mounted inverted U-shaped empennage, meticulously designed for efficient prolonged flights, offering complete ease of use. ALTI have developed various unique and proprietary features for the Transition, including but not limited to quick release wing latches, integrated internal fuel tank, aerofoil shaped landing gear, antennas build into the winglets and internal GPS, meaning zero drag induced by these systems, rapid deploy airframe for quick assembly and transport, highly optimised manufacturing and composite techniques along with many other ‘ALTI only’ features.

These features and design values allow for an incredibly low weight system with a maximum take-off weight of only 16kg. The payload bay can be tailored to fit and mount a wide range of cameras, sensors and other equipment, the system offers great flexibility without limiting the operator or mission scope. Designed to be aerodynamically stable and steady in low speed flight applications the ALTI Transition is designed to cruise at 20m/s. The airframe has a maximum VNE speed of 30m/s and a low stall speed of 13m/s and an incredible endurance of up to 7 hours.

The ALTI Transition is stricly for civil and commercial use applications.

The ALTI Transition truly offers the next generation in unmanned aircraft technology, today.
