seaplane

The good work that for years they have been doing in the Spanish company Singular Aircraft It has resulted in a work as impressive as the one you can see right in the image that is located at the head of this same entrance as they are new unmanned aircraft Flyox Mark I and Flyox Mark II.

As a detail, tell you that this new seaplane stands out, whatever the specific model, for having a length of 11.5 meters, wingspan of 14 meters and a height of 3.5 meters. The maximum weight that this type of model can have to take off is 3.8 tons, weight with which it can reach a maximum flight speed of 233 kilometers per hour. In its most basic version, this model has a autonomy of 7 hours.

Unmanned Aircraft International to use Singular Aircraft's seaplane for rescue work

Thanks to all these technical characteristics, the American company Unmanned Aircraft International has decided to acquire several units, which will begin to carry out their first tests to pass the corresponding certifications so that they can be used by private companies. As specified by Unmanned Aircraft International, the company will begin to use this type of aircraft in rescue work, including putting out fires thanks to the fact that this new class of seaplane is capable of load inside about 2.000 liters of water.

As a final detail, just tell you that the Flyox Mark I model can even be equipped with a larger volume fuel tank and electro-optical sensors that weigh up to 227 kilograms. This increase in the weight of the aircraft, however, translates into greater autonomy in unmanned mode, which is up to 50 hours. The US company plans to use the new device in the state of Oregon, as well as in the provinces of Quebec and Alberta, in Canada.
