In the early 1900s, Ford Motor Company’s (NYSE: F) Model T car democratized driving by making cars affordable for all. Now LIFT Aircraft is spreading its wings to democratize flight and make air travel accessible without requiring an expensive and time-consuming pilot license or certification. The company is currently making a Reg A+ offering of common stock.

The average person commutes in their car for an hour every day. These commutes – the vast majority of which are 15 miles or less – translate into wasted time, and expensive fuel costs, and also have a measurable impact on decreased workplace innovation and income lost to commute time.

Concerns around transportation also include climate change emissions. Transportation accounts for the largest segment of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the US, with lightweight and medium-to-heavy vehicles making up 83% of all transportation emissions.

Safe Drone Flights Without Expensive Pilot Certification

LIFT Aircraft is attempting to revolutionize travel, making flight available to all with its electrical, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, HEXA. Through this human-scale drone, the company plans to deliver personal, point-to-point travel to the urban air mobility (UAM) market currently worth $2.2 billion.

As ultralights, HEXA aircraft don’t require expensive and time-consuming pilot certification under Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 103. This means that about one hour of training - including ground school and virtual reality (VR) flight simulator training - is enough for most to be able to fly these straightforward aircraft.

The company is starting by providing recreational flights out of its vertiport locations, however, LIFT’s vision is that these ultralights will eventually provide a viable alternative to cars for most commuters. Designed for short-range flights and capable of speeds of 90 mph, HEXA could be perfectly suited to replace commutes of 15 miles or less, which account for 85% of all traveling in the US.

The company has simplified procedures to make HEXA – which has zero CO2 emissions – simple and straightforward to fly. Equipped with a triply redundant autopilot computer, autopilot capabilities, and automatic wind-speed adjustments, the aircraft is easily flown with a single, 3-axis joystick. Meanwhile, all of LIFT’s recreational flights are monitored by trained professionals able to take remote control of the aircraft in case of emergency.

LIFT doesn’t seem to be taking any shortcuts when it comes to safety. The company says it self-regulates its aircraft according to rigorous FAA safety guidelines to ensure maximum safety compliance for its aircraft. LIFT’s safety advisory board includes Dr. Charles Justiz, a leading expert in aircraft safety and former Chief of Aviation Safety at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The company’s commitment to making flight both accessible and as safe as possible means that almost anyone can fly without the prohibitive cost of expensive certification.

After what it says was a highly successful Reg CF fundraise, LIFT has now launched a Reg A+ stock offering.
