ASKA™ A5 FEATURES
ASKA™ A5 has a proprietary power system that features lithium ion batteries + an engine that acts as a range extender. This dual energy source delivers effective flight range and increases power source reliability.
ASKA™ A5's engineering bridges automotive and aviation design. This expertise, combined with our innovative IP, have made the ASKA™ drive and fly vehicle a reality. ASKA™ A5 has quality details throughout, from a versatile electric and hybrid system, to advanced metal materials combined with a carbon fiber structure for certified safety and strength.
REVOLUTIONARY AERODYNAMIC DESIGN
Our R&D team's out-of-the-box thinking has led to an advanced aerodynamic configuration that drives safely on the ground and flies efficiently in the air.
With its unique secure wing and arms mechanism, in drive mode, ASKA™ A5 is the size of a SUV. ASKA™ A5 is a world-class innovation, focused on reliability, safety and design optimized for mass production.
ASKA™ A5 delivers an exceptional performance experience with its in-wheel motor technology, on the road or in the air.
With this technology, the wheels can be placed outside the fuselage, enabling better aerodynamics, and creating additional interior space to comfortably seat 4 passengers. It provides a high driving position, similar to an SUV, enabling the driver to have excellent visibility, and facilitates adequate ground clearance for Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) mode.
In drive mode, the in-wheel motor supports dynamic handling capabilities for a great driving experience.
ASKA™ represents a new dimension of innovation
ASKA's™ wings and arms are equipped with necessary directional stiffness which can contain deflections and dimensional stability required by the control system. The high aspect ratio wing has sufficient bending and torsional stiffness to maintain its critical flutter velocity above the vehicle's maximum flight speeds. Redundant load paths are added to comply with damage tolerant design requirements.
FOCUSED ON SAFETY
Relax and enjoy the journey...on the road or in the air, ASKA™ is designed for the highest level of safety.
Reliable, double backup systems to ensure safety and peace of mind
The large wing design is optimized for safe landings and to reduce energy consumption
ASKA™ is boarded like a car, at home, in a garage or on the street, not on a busy airfield
Ballistic parachute for extra safety
Higher Efficient Lift
With the large propellers, ASKA™ has the best in class low Disc Loading (DL) and high Power Loading (PL) to hover with high efficiency and maneuverability.
REDUNDANT SYSTEMS FOR
Dual power supply sources
Each rotor has an independent battery power source plus a range extender power.
Designed to ensure continued flight and a safe landing in the event of an emergency.
ASKA™ features a robust energy management system with redundant power distribution architecture.
