Urban Aero Moves Forward with Hydrogen

Yavne, Israel-based Urban Aeronautics announced on June 11 that it had signed an agreement with hydrogen fuel-cell innovator HyPoint, Inc., with offices in Menlo Park, California. Urban Aeronautics, the developer of the CityHawk Fancraft, and HyPoint, a leader in next-generation, high-power, high-temperature proton-exchange-membrane (HTPEM) hydrogen fuel-cell systems, will explore the development of an advanced version of the CityHawk eVTOL powered by HyPoint’s cutting-edge, hydrogen fuel-cell stack technology. As currently designed, the six-seat CityHawk relies on turboshaft-powered hybrid propulsion (see “Compact Vertical Flight: Urban Aeronautics Advances,” Vertiflite, Jan/Feb 2018). It is based on the company’s unmanned Cormorant Fancraft, which has been flying since 2009. Urban Aeronautics announced in August that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with US-based Hatzolah Air to help the company develop, produce and market its CityHawk for emergency medical service (EMS) applications.
