Flyboard Air EXP™

Zapata’s Flyboard Air EXP™ is the next generation of advanced individual mobility.  An embedded stability program uses vectored thrust from six small turbine engines to create an intuitive, responsive, and imminently stable flying platform.  Engineered for safety, the Flyboard Air EXP incorporates multiple redundancies to provide graceful degradation and safe landing in the event of control channel interruption or multiple engine-loss. With Zapata’s™ proprietary balance methodology, fail-safes, and patented designs, the Flyboard Air™ is superbly safe and stable in the air and can reach speeds of over 90 mph, allowing the user to fly with exceptional confidence.

Air Stretcher™

Using the same technology that powers the Zapata’s™ Flyboard Air™, the Air Stretcher™ will offer unparalleled access for emergency applications to be used in military, medical, ski resort, and remote workspace removal. Using Zapata’s™ proprietary balance methodology, algorithms, and patented designs, the Air Stretcher™ will offer injured occupants the ability to remotely, and safely be removed from dangerous situations, and offer life-saving equipment within the Air Stretcher™.

  • Unmanned medical and emergency aircraft.
  • Four-channel redundant system meaning it can still fly and land safely should one engine fail.
  • Zapata’s™ proprietary balance methodology, algorithms, and patented designs.
  • Fully equipped for medical emergencies.
  • Potential applications within military and remote work access sites.
  • Prototype to be completed in 2018.

Air Cargo™

Using Zapata’s™ proprietary balance methodology, algorithms, patented designs and remote wireless capabilities, the Air Cargo™ platform has multiple uses in remote site drop-off and supply: such as war-torn areas where fast access to supplies can mean the difference between life or death. Without a physical operator, the Air Cargo™ system mitigates the risk to more lives by allowing the system to do the work of a traditional crew where access to a remote location with a faster response time is greater than traditionally allowed.

  • Unmanned delivery platform.
  • Powered by same technology pioneered by Flyboard Air™.
  • Full redundancy—safer than a helicopter.
  • Extremely practical for fast delivery in a remote location.
  • Can be used for military, medical, or equipment supply.

Air Platform™

Saving time, money, and additional resources typically needed for commercial maintenance, the Zapata™ Air Platform™ will allow industrial crews the ability to reach inaccessible, dangerous, and remote locations. Some examples of the demanding applications for the Air Platform™ include: wind turbines, offshore oil rigs, bridges, and remote buildings. With Zapata’s™ proprietary balance methodology, algorithms, and patented designs, the Air Platform™ would allow operators to focus on the maintenance in question without worrying about operating the craft.

  • Future of industrial maintenance with the ability to reach inaccessible locations.
  • Could support a crew of two people.
  • Full redundancy—safer than a helicopter.
  • Practical for wind turbine maintenance.
