Technology

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.

Redundant Power System

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.

Advanced Fly-by-Wire Avionics

The P3 utilizes the next generation of our Pyka Flight Engine and incorporates the same levels of redundancy and reliability found in commercial airliners.

Multi-Mission Design

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.

Lightweight Composite Airframe

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.

Electric workhorse

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.

The safest commuter aircraft ever built

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.

4-axis envelope protection

Roll, pitch, yaw, airspeed

Active stall and spin prevention

Automated systems ensure safety

Four-engine operation

Best-in-class engine-out climb performance and controllability

Emergency autoland

Protects occupants in critical situations

Pilot Optional

The P3 is designed for autonomy from day one, enabling safe, pilotless, and affordable cargo missions.
