FLY-R unveils its new range of UAVs based on the Rhomboidal Wing Configuration

Reunion Island, January 2021: FLY-R SAS unveiled its new corporate image, logo and
website. The presentation includes several new FLY-R projects such as the R2-HSTD.
The aerodynamics formula of the rhomboidal wing is a technology breakthrough and was
largely proven by FLY-R on its R2-150 and R2-240 UAVs. It has now been extended to new models of UAVs up to 6m wingspan.

The new project announcements from FLY-R also include the R2-HSTD, a rhomboidal wing Hight Speed Target Drone powered by a jet turbine.

FLY-R is also entering the final development test and qualification of its autonomous recovery system for fixed-wing UAVs on a moving platform.

FLY-R has applied the rhomboidal configuration to a commercial aircraft thus bringing the
advantages of excellent aerodynamic efficiency and therefore high performances for low fuel consumption. The CR-1200 project is powered by a hybrid motorization system including two electrical motors. The rhomboidal configuration also translates in a small footprint on the ground and short take-off and landing distances.

About FLY-R:

Formerly known as “Aero Composite Innovations”, FLY-R was created in 2013 by three
engineers with 45 years of cumulative experience in the design, development, testing and qualification of fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), for both civilian and defence applications.

The company, located on Réunion Island (France), is specialized in the design, development and manufacturing of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) using composite fixed-wing aircraft.

It has unique know-how related to the Rhomboidal Wing Aerodynamic formula that presents numerous advantages and allows to improve on current applications and consider new ones for the aircraft of the future.

FLY-R obtained the ISO 9001 and EN/AS/JISQ 9100 certifications in August 2019.
