Silent Air Taxi



The Silent Air Taxi (SAT) is a modern aircraft for up to four passengers with a cruising speed of over 300 km/h and a range of 1,000 km, which is currently being developed by the e.SAT GmbH in Aachen. It features an innovative boxwing and a unique hybrid electric (e) drivetrain. This allows short take-off distances from almost any runway.

    • Extensive soundproofing of the drivetrain
    • Aero-acoustically optimized design of the entire aircraft
  • Low acquisition and operating costs make individual air travel affordable

    Any destination inland for the price of a 1st class train ticket

    • The Space Frame, mass-produced motors and an assembly similar to that of a normal car keep acquisition costs low
    • Systematic design to keep operating and maintenance costs to a minimum
    • Low-consumption motors and hybridization at optimum operating points keep energy costs low
  • Developed to comply with highest regulatory standards

    The Silent Air Taxi creates a particularly high level of safety by way of drivetrain redundancies, as well as simplified controls

    • Approved and developed in compliance with the latest international regulations for the aviation industry
    • Particularly easy operation due to a high level of automation
