Frequently asked questions

frequently asked questions

What is FLUTR


A personal air vehicle for getting from home to the shops, school, work, client’s office, the golf course, a trip to the beach, the mountains, or wherever your imagination takes you. It can also be used for rapid response emergency vehicles in congested urban neighborhoods or remote country areas, and search, rescue and patrol operations for safety organisations. Together, many FLUTR vehicles become a scaleable aerial mobility transport system. FLUTR stands for Flying Urban Transporter It is also an abbreviation of "flutter" as in the motion of butterflies.




what does FLUTR the company do


FLUTR, the company, creates air vehicles and technology suitable for the widespread adoption of personal air transport. Separate FLUTR vehicles combine to form a centrally managed aerial mobility transport system.




is it easy to fly?


If you can drive a car, and use a smartphone, you can drive FLUTR. Getting used to a vehicle that flies is faster and easier than you may think. Or if you want to pay a little extra, a professional pilot can come and do the flying for you (AirTaxi mode).




how many people will it fit?


1 - 4 people* 2 adults, or 1 adult, 2 children, or 1 adult, 3 small children. (child size determined by weight- details later) *final capacity determined by regulatory permission




what happens if something goes wrong?


In case of mechanical failure or unscripted incident, a rapid deploying chute is deployed. We are evaluating various chute designs, and in conjunction with built in energy absorbing seats and airbags, to ensure a safe outcome from any height.




how do I use it?


FLUTR can be hailed like a taxi using the FLUTR app (under development), or if you have done the quick 1-2 day training course, you can find the nearest FLUTR on the app and jump in and fly it yourself. Or you can purchase and fly your own vehicle from home/office/anywhere at anytime. Or you can use your company owned FLUTR anytime (self fly, or piloted).




when will it be ready?


We are working at warp speed to get this vehicle into the hands of the millions of people who want one today. As soon as a complete and safe vehicle and operating system is fully tested and certified by the safety authorities we will let you know.
In the meantime you can reserve flights (FLUTR minutes) or pre-order vehicles.





Where

pricing

how much to go from A to B if I fly myself?


FLUTR can be rented by the minute, (self flown or with an on call pilot), or purchased outright. The price per minute is only 4$US or 4 EUR. There is a minimum charge of $50/flight. The current price for outright ownership is $199,000 (US dollars). Actual price for orders made closer to delivery may vary (up or down), and taxes may apply. FLUTR is able to offer such a low price because of the high manufacturing volumes being arranged. There will also be a minimalized annual fee to cover maintenance, insurance, licensing, registration, air traffic control, and remote flight management services. The first year’s annual fee is included in the price. More announcements on pricing will be provided later. Vehicle financing options will be provided. We will be working hard to reduce the cost over time to offer widespread affordability, both for individuals wishing to rent, self fly, own, and for corporates to own and operate.




will it save me money?


If you value your time then FLUTR should save you a lot of money. A 30km trip to the airport will typically save at least 30 minutes of your time, compared to taking a car/taxi or train. If time is important to you, yes. Driving FLUTR from one side of a populated city to another can take 2 hours, or only 10 minutes with FLUTR. Other associated costs of driving include parking and road tolls, which for frequent users can really add up. We believe that many people will pay a small amount extra for the extra hours per week that they do not sit in traffic, or commute along a highway. As a weekend toy it’s also a hell of a lot of fun.




how much extra if I call a pilot (airTaxi) to fly me?


Price for an airTaxi is $8/minute. (or 8EUR/minute) Price includes pilot, vehicle, fuel, insurance, navigation charges, airport charges, remote pilot charges.




what is the cost to fill the tank?


FLUTR uses standard automotive bio-diesel fuel.
Around 80$ for a full tank, lasting around 200km.

Ownership and Usage

ownership and usage

if I purchase a FLUTR, can I sell it to anyone?


Yes. But FLUTR reserves the right to ensure that the new owner will be a responsible operator. To do this any owner must agree to the terms of the owner’s agreement which details a minimal number of simple and reasonable conditions that ensures the safety of themselves and the public that they will fly over. The principle of responsible ownership is supported by the general aviation and regulation community.




how does FLUTR guarantee the competence of drivers?


We will ensure that competent and approved driver training is provided, and we will use background and medical checks to keep airspace safe. Just as importantly we will endeavor not to over regulate or complicate the process. Definitely no red tape. Airspace and aerial freedom of movement belongs to you, not bureaucratic corporations.




I'm a qualified pilot, can I buy one?


Of course. Although we are not intending that the vehicle be used just for pilots, but by everybody. But we realize that there is a strong demand by pilots who are looking for a simpler and easier flying vehicle ownership experience. Note that your flying license will likely not cover this type of vehicle and flying conditions, so supplemental instruction will be required (separate FLUTR type rating).




can I buy a FLUTR and use it as an airTaxi?


Yes. Note only qualified commercial pilots are legally allowed to drive FLUTR as a taxi (due to government regulations in most countries). You will require a normal helicopter license, and a commercial airplane license. FLUTR will screen pilots for suitability (flight and competence test) before allowing them to fly passengers or cargo commercially, as FLUTR is connected to a centrally managed flight operating system.




can I buy a fleet of FLUTRs and lease them out?


Yes. More details coming soon. Please contact sales@flutrmotors.com for pre-release information.




if I reserved a delivery slot is it easy to cancel?


Yes. Deposits with initial amounts above $1,000 are fully refundable at any time, up to the date of delivery. Instead of cancelling you may wish to sell your delivery slot which can be done on the website. See terms for full conditions.

Safety

safety

how is FLUTR safe?


Safety is a state of mind. From inception through to implementation, the founders, engineers and everyone involved in the development, manufacturing, training, maintenance, and operation are both experienced and passionate about aviation and safety. We constantly look out for the worst case scenario so you shouldn't even have to think about it. FLUTR is regulated by the highly respected aviation safety authorities EASA in Europe, FAA in the US, CAA in the UK, CASA in Australia, and other regulatory authorities in the countries in which FLUTR and it's products will operate. Notwithstanding our high standards, pragmatically speaking FLUTR is not immune from the statistics of aviation accidents, as with any form of mobility, so we continue to stay on high alert for the known and unknown risks that accompany aerial mobility.




onboard emergencies?


FLUTR is designed for all typical aviation scenarios, such as engine failure, fire, bird strike and many others. Each possible scenario is meticiously analyzed and an emergency response sequence is designed into the system. For example an onboard fire requires an immediate automatic landing at a nearest suitable landing area, carried out in a minimum amount of time. Remote pilots also have a video and microphone contact with the pasengers at most times for added situational awareness.




who monitors FLUTR for safety?


FLUTR is regulated by the highly respected aviation safety authorities EASA in Europe, FAA in the US, CAA in the UK, CASA in Australia, and other regulatory authorities in the countries in which FLUTR and it's products will operate. In Germany, flight operations are monitored by the LBA.




what technology does FLUTR use to ensure safety?


FLUTR uses a remote pilot monitoring and flight management system, which is staffed by seasoned airline pilots. The FLUTR vehicle has a low altitude rapid inflating chute. Multi redundant system components. High crashworthiness fuselage structure and materials. Fireproof cabin. Experienced staff from inception through to operation.





Technical

specs

luggage?


Yes. up to 120 kg / 260lbs (if flying solo) up to 20 kg / 44lbs if 2 or more people onboard The vehicle has a boot capacity of 20 kg (for an overnight bag or golfclubs) The rear seat can carry up to 100 kg of normal or oversized luggage.




how much does it cost?


FLUTR can be rented by the minute, (self flown or with an on call pilot), or purchased outright. The price per minute is only 4$US or 4 EUR. There is a minimum charge of $50/flight. The current price for outright ownership is $199,000 (US dollars). Actual price for orders made closer to delivery may vary (up or down), and taxes may apply. FLUTR is able to offer such a low price because of the high manufacturing volumes being arranged. There will also be a minimalized annual fee to cover maintenance, insurance, licensing, registration, air traffic control, and remote flight management services.

what colors, interior and equipment options are available?


For base consumer roles, a Base model and an Enhanced model are available. Full model options will be revealed at the model release date. Model release date is yet to be advised.




will it fit in my garage?


Yes. With a folding design it is designed to fill the space of an SUV. Unfolded it is designed to take up the equivalent of less than 2 car parking spaces. 18' X 9' folded. 2.1m high. 18' X 18' unfolded.




how fast does it go?


Fast! Cruising at 250km/h (150mph). Even faster with a tailwind.




is it noisy?


During take-off, FLUTR is designed to be no noisier than a small truck or sports car. This noise level will be produced for less than a minute. As the vehicle accelerates from hover phase to cruise phase, more power is required, however this is applied at a height and distance at a minimum distance from any noise sensitive community. In cruise phase it will be reasonably quiet, so it won’t upset neighborhoods who deserve their peace and quiet.





Aerial mobility for all - that's our aim.     
                     
And as the world’s roads finally reach full capacity,  we have no choice but to reach to the skies.
A better way to get to the office, shops, school, anywhere is required.
It has to be fast, efficient, safe, easy to use, quiet, affordable and sustainable. And fun.
A new transport system.
The skies belong to you, and the solution is coming soon.
