The Cyclo-Crane - A Hybrid Aircraft Concept 831524

AeroLift represents one of the very few organizations devoted to the design, development, and construction of a hybrid aircraft. The proposed Cyclo-Crane is a hybrid aircraft that utilizes aerostatic lift combined with aerodynamic lift and thrust. The Cyclo-Crane will offer heavy lift services, analogous to helicopter operations at a cost projected to be on the order of 25% of helicopters. The Cyclo-Crane concept is valid up to 75 tons of slingload capability with the initial models targeted at the two and 16-ton slingload range.
