Origin - Reinventing Transport











VTOL-ENABLED &
READY TO DRIVE

While invisible in forward flight, Origin has full vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capabilities. An additional 30 kph on-street drivability further augments its flexibility:
Start and end your trip - whenever you want, wherever you are.

UNRIVALED
EFFICIENCY

The streamlined design of our airplane results in forward flight efficiency rivaling sailplanes- as yet unseen in the VTOL category.

1500 KM RANGE
at 300 KPH

Using a serial hybrid drive concept, we combine the best of electric engines and liquid fuels: net-zero CO₂ emission is achieved through eFuels and a range >400% higher than in purely electric aircraft is realized. Less than 5l of eFuel are used per 100km - at 300kph travel speed.

The Vision

Doing our part - for a sustainable yet awesome future
From tablet PCs over autonomous cars to smart home devices - there are many examples of pieces of technology already predicted in science fiction movies decades ago. We have seen flying cars and personal airplanes many times over, yet nothing remotely comparable exists on the market.

At the Atlas Aero GmbH we are certain that the technology required to realize it is now finally available. Carbon fiber composites, a lightweight propulsion unit and sophisticated controls from quadcopter technology help us to enable this vision:

A powerful, easy-to-fly and resource efficient personal aircraft - Origin.

"Mark my words.
A combination of airplane and motorcar is coming.
You may smile. But it will come."

Henry Ford in 1940

Drive, Jump and Glide

Participate in road traffic and use ground infrastructure.
Be fully flexible where you take-off and land.
Silently glide through the air - at 300kph.

Range, Speed
and Efficiency

From anywhere in Munich to a skyscraper in London will take you about three hours. A sub-two hour flight from Munich to Berlin.
London to Paris in just over one hour - with less than 25€ worth of fuel used.

Take off like a drone,
glide like a bird

Origin's unique wing design allows it to start and land vertically
yet remaining a perfect airplane in forward flight.
This results in outstanding efficiency, long range and high cruising speed.

Safety first

Our aircraft is designed for maximum safety.
Multiple redundancies are engineered into the drive train components and Origin packs active controls - more reliable than any non-electrical propulsion system could ever be - keeping you safe, even in the harshest conditions.

Serial Hybrid -
our Innovation Platform

Origin uses all-electric propulsion, a buffer battery and a generator.
This architecture can be easily adapted to novel developments, integrating fuel cells as soon as they become aviation-ready.
