4x reduction in direct cost compared to a conventional 9-passenger airplane
Enabling trips that are 4x faster than a car
Reduced pilot workload — ideal for low time regional pilots
Helping to drive the world toward a zero-emission future
The P3 blends cutting-edge propulsion system and avionics technologies with an extremely aerodynamic, battle-tested airframe configuration. The result is a revolutionary new aircraft that will re-define cargo and regional transportation.
The P3 is equipped with a patent-pending pusher-puller propulsion system that gives variable-pitch like performance with inexpensive, easy to maintain fixed pitch propellers. During cruise, only the rear propellers are used, resulting in a 10% increase in efficiency over a conventional design.
The P3 utilizes the next generation of our Pyka Flight Engine and incorporates the same levels of redundancy and reliability found in commercial airliners.
The P3 can comfortably carry up to nine passengers or 330 ft2 of cargo. Large rear doors and a high wing provide an easy entry and exit point for people and goods.
P3's extremely aerodynamic structure is made out of high performance carbon fiber composites resulting in high corrosion resistance and fatigue-limits, as well as benchmark-setting range and cruise speed.
We've optimized P3 for safety, reliability, and affordability. P3 leverages Pyka's certified systems to provide a sustainable and fast option for regional trips.
Pyka’s proprietary fly-by-wire control system sits between the pilot and the aircraft, greatly simplifying operations and eliminating the risk of loss of control — a revolution in single pilot safety.
Roll, pitch, yaw, airspeed
Automated systems ensure safety
Best-in-class engine-out climb performance and controllability
Protects occupants in critical situations
The P3 is designed for autonomy from day one, enabling safe, pilotless, and affordable cargo missions.
In order to quickly iterate on new hardware and software, we do extensive subscale testing of our aircraft. Our subcales run the same software and sensor suite as our full-scale planes, enabling rapid progress and state-of-the-art capibilities.
