O Projecto Flexcraft foi apresentado no Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium de 2017. Segue-se o resumo da sua intervenção:
Electric propulsion will bring new opportunities for flying multi-modal vehicles that promises considerable advantages in low-level urban airspaces, specifically in terms of noise, emissions, flexibility and operating-cost. This presentation outlines the opportunities these technologies afford to the design of the passenger experience via innovative cabin layouts and modular fuselage configurations. A consortium of companies and institutions (ALMADESIGN, IST, SET, EMBRAER, INEGI) in the fields of industrial design, aeronautical engineering, process engineering and aircraft manufacturing, converges its expertise to develop an S-TOL capable concept to be tested using a remotely-operated scaled demonstrator, a full-size cabin mock-up and an innovative manufacturing process.
