Founded in 1990, DTA Aircraft Manufacturer is headquartered in Montelimar, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France. The company manufacturers ultra light gyrocopters, trikes and wings. As of the end of 2023, the company has sold 595 aircraft in 33 countries. The company revealed in 2023 that they have designed and manufactured a two passenger electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) multicopter aircraft and expect deliveries to take place in 2026.

eVTOL-4 DTA passenger eVTOL multicopter concept design aircraft
The eVTOL-4 DTA is a four passenger eVTOL multicopter concept design aircraft. The seating is a 2X2 seating configuration. A pilot and passenger sit side-by-side in the front row of seats in the cabin and two passengers sit side-by-side in the rear of the cabin. The aircraft is being sold as an ultra-light aircraft. The cabin is completely enclosed with a canopy over the cockpit arrangement. The aircraft has clear gull-wing doors on both sides of the aircraft for easy entry and exit of the aircraft. The aircraft has full GPS flight enabled.

The company has not released any flight specifications for the aircraft as of February 2024. The aircraft has eight carbon fiber propellers. Each pair of propellers are stacked at the ends of four booms which are located on the four corners of the aircraft. There are eight brushless electric motors that power the propellers and the aircraft uses battery packs for its power source. The aircraft is made from carbon fiber composite material for a high strength to low weight ratio. The aircraft has fixed quadricycle wheeled landing gear. There is also a whole aircraft emergency ballistic parachute in case of an unexpected inflight emergency.

The company has given no word on when a prototype aircraft will be made or when a flying prototype is expected to be manufactured.

Specifications:

  • Aircraft type: Passenger eVTOL multicopter aircraft
  • Piloting: 1 pilot
  • Capacity: 1 passenger
  • Cruise speed: Unknown
  • Propellers: 8 carbon fiber propellers
  • Electric motors: 8 brushless electric motors
  • Power source: Battery packs
  • Fuselage: Carbon fiber composite
  • Window: Canopy over cockpit
  • Landing gear: Fixed quadricycle wheeled landing gear
  • Safety features: Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) means having multiple propellers (or electric ducted fans) and multiple electric motors on an aircraft so if one or more propellers (or electric ducted fans) or some electric motors fail, the other working propellers (or electric ducted fans) and electric motors can safely land the aircraft. DEP provides safety through redundancy for its passengers or cargo. There are also redundancies of critical components in the sub-systems of the aircraft providing safety through redundancy for its passengers or cargo. Having multiple redundant systems on any aircraft decreases having any single point of failure. There is also a whole aircraft emergency ballistic parachute in case of an unexpected inflight emergency.
