Take to the sky

Skyworks Aeronautics and Williams Advanced Engineering have formed a strategic partnership to collaborate on the design, fabrication, and testing of Skyworks’ eGyro™ electrically powered aircraft


The Skyworks eGyro has been designed to leverage the fundamental safety and performance advantages of a gyroplane to create a runway independent system that provides a practical approach to intra and inter-city passenger transport. With an autorotating main rotor, which allows the aircraft to land safely with even a complete loss of power, the eGyro is fundamentally safe. Electrification of the powertrain has enabled innovative design solutions that are no longer restricted by conventional technologies.

Remarked Skyworks’ Chief Technology Advisor Don Woodbury: “The partnership with WAE will bring their amazing talents with aerodynamics and design as well as their electric powertrain capabilities to the eGyro and further our efforts to create a best-in-class UAM system.”
