The Skyworks Hawk 5 aircraft is a bi-product of decades of incremental improvement protected by numerous patents.
Skyworks Aeronautics Corp has received financing from Plavo More SPV, LLC and has started work to prepare a flying demonstrator for its Hawk 5 gyroplane aircraft.
The Hawk aircraft that Skyworks is upgrading and preparing for flight demonstrations has flown previously, including an eight week long security mission for the Utah Olympic Public Safety Command during the Winter Olympic Games. It was the only rotorcraft that stayed 100% mission ready.
The Hawk 5 employs a free-spinning rotor to provide lift and an engine for thrust. By using a high power, pre-rotation system while on the ground, the Hawk 5 is capable of take-off from almost anywhere. The unpowered rotor is always in autorotation, so in the event of engine failure, the Hawk 5's rotor continues to autorotate. This maintains a normal glidepath despite engine failure, keeping the pilot in complete control and enabling a very low speed touchdown.
Additionally, since there is no requirement for helicopter antitorque transmission systems, the Hawk 5 reduces both cost and complexity of both manufacture and operations. At the same time, it significantly increases mission reliability while providing operators greater levels of safety. With its simple but sophisticated aircraft design, the Hawk 5 benefits from operating much like a fixed-wing aircraft, making it a true one-of-a-kind reliable aviation workhorse.
“We are looking forward to converting our LOI orders to firm orders once the Hawk demonstrator is flying,” says Green Otomasyon Enerjil's board member, Yunus Nurilier.
Paul J. Alar, President and Founder of Plavo More, explains, “Often investors confuse 'no competition' with new, leading-edge, technology. Many times, that simply is not the case. Although simple in concept, the Skyworks Hawk 5 aircraft is a bi-product of decades of incremental improvement protected by numerous patents. The end result is a product that is cheaper to build, cheaper to operate, and most importantly, safer to fly than a helicopter.”
