The idea of being able to fly from your doorstep without having to travel by other means to an airport has been around for a long time. This idea is going to become a reality. Many companies are working on delivering the first commercial eVTOL (Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing) vehicle. One of the pioneers in this field was Kittyhawk. Founded in Palo Alto in 2010, they developed multiple prototype eVTOLs before they wound down operations in 2022. In 2019 they revealed their final prototype, the Heaviside H2. It introduced such innovations as tilting motors and a high-performance single-seat design. In trials it flew more than 100 miles on a single charge and hit a speed of 180 miles per hour, while being 100 times quieter than a helicopter.
Kittyhawk donated a Heaviside H2 to the Wings of History Museum. The aircraft is currently in storage because we don’t have room to display it properly. We are hoping to acquire a large semi-permanent tent in which to display the aircraft. We are asking for donations to help purchase the tent and build the exhibit. We would greatly appreciate donations of any size for this project. Donors who contribute $200 or more will get their name displayed on a plaque in the exhibit. You can donate below via PayPal.
