HUMBUZZ LLC is an innovative aerospace company based out of Georgia Tech. We have designed a personal flying machine called the HummingBuzz (visit http://evtol.news/hover-bikes/georgia-tech-hummingbuzz/) that won the Boeing GoFly Prize Competition by placing in the top 10 rankings, out of 750 teams worldwide. Our current plan of action includes having a flying full-scale prototype by February 2019.
A brief description of our product, the HummingBuzz, is that it is a fully electric personal air vehicle with the capability of extremely low noise signatures (due to the duct’s noise reducing nanomaterials) and small footprint (largest dimension is only 6.5 ft). It is designed for an average flight of 30 minutes at speed of 60 mph.
To make our current goal of building a full-scale prototype possible, we have brought together an incredible team, from well-established companies who are at the forefront of their respective fields, to startups like ourselves who are sharpening the cutting edge of technology. One of our key partners includes a leading company in Tier 1 & 2 design/manufacturing in the aerospace department.
Past the Boeing GoFly Prize, the HummingBuzz is seen to be the perfect solution to problems in many fields including, Search & Rescue operations, Disaster Relief, Coast Guards, Fire Departments in need of quick verticality to reach high areas and recreational markets. However, the eventual goal, in the not so distant future, is to change people’s mindset of flying, by allowing them to experience it first hand, when they choose to commute to and from work daily by air and not ground.
