A Personal Air Vehicle That Can Be Optionally Piloted By The Operator
A futuristic optionally piloted personal air vehicle was unveiled by the government-backed Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) in April 2019. An agency technology demonstrator is expected to fly around the middle of 2022, and it intends to apply for certification from the Korean Civil Aviation Office. According to FutureFlight, the aircraft will be built by an undisclosed South Korean company.
According to a sub-scale wind tunnel model, the eVTOL design is an all-electric tiltrotor with five seats, which appears to be all-electric.
There has been no further public update on KARI's TR-60 unmanned tiltorotor program, which was apparently developed for military applications.
