About Us

Powered by an efficient heavy-fuel engine, the VA001 completed its first flight in February 2015, flying autonomously in the national airspace. In operation, the VA001's unmatched range and 10-day endurance will greatly reduce the operating cost and manpower burden to provide persistent aerial coverage, and will enable new missions previously beyond the capabilities of mid-size UAS.
