2 Introduction Definition of a Hybrid Aircraft “A hybrid aircraft combines the characteristics of heavier-than-air (HTA) technology, fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter, and lighter-than-air (LTA) airship technology.” AeroCat – Has an endurance that can be measured in days – Is capable of landing or taking off with heavy payloads from almost anywhere, including remote fields, deserts, marshes, harbors or waterways – Development time and cost is a fraction of a comparable traditional new aircraft. The Technology – fully developed and safety tested – This is not a new aircraft design, but an updated design using today’s technology During the last seven years, AEROVEHICLES INC. has refined the design and secured the industry partners necessary to certify and produce the AeroCat line of hybrid aircraft.  AeroVehicles Inc. 2002
