Flexcraft Flexible Aircraft

FLEXCRAFT – Flexible Aircraft – is an aircraft that combines the idea of modularity – allowing a reconfiguration of the cabin for different missions (commercial and recreational, emergency and assistance, among others) with STOL capability – to compete with rotary wing solutions, through short runway operation, improving overall performance.

It is a collaborative project between SETsa, AlmaDesign, Embraer Portugal, INEGI and IST.

I joined this project in its final year, and worked on the construction of a remotely piloted vehicle - a scaled version of what the real FLEXCRAFT would be.
