This craft, mirroring a diminutive airplane in appearance, possesses the novel capability of ascending vertically, eliminating the necessity for a traditional runway.

Sirius Aviation, hailing from Switzerland, is at the forefront of integrating fuel cell technology into electric eVTOLs, aiming for maximal ecological sustainability. The company promises that these aircraft will operate without any emissions and minimize environmental impact during their operation, while also delivering exceptional comfort and impressive travel range.

The Sirius Business Jet, which accommodates three passengers, has a remarkable flight range of 1,850 km on a single trip. In contrast, the Sirius Millennium Jet, with a seating capacity for five, is capable of traveling 1,050 km per flight.

This makes it a convenient option for transporting individuals between major urban centers worldwide, significantly reducing travel time in comparison to ground transportation.

The Sirius Jet is designed to achieve a maximum velocity of 520 km/h, propelled by a liquid hydrogen fuel system and an array of 28 propellers, each approximately 30 cm in diameter, predominantly installed along the wings. Additionally, the aircraft incorporates a compact battery pack, though the primary energy source is hydrogen.

Preparations for the maiden flight tests of the initial prototype are underway, slated for 2025, with aspirations to commence commercial service by 2028.
