With the HT-100, ANAVIA has succeeded in creating a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) system that combines a high payload with a long range and ease of operation. With its innovation, the Aargau-based aviation company is targeting customers in the fields of surveying, surveillance, logistics, future markets, search and rescue, defense and agriculture, for which flight missions are indispensable.

Long flight times (240 minutes), high payload capacity (up to 65 kg), back-up motor and intelligent redundancy systems, intuitive controls, easy mission programming, rapid launch readiness, long maintenance intervals, many equipment options - the helicopter's list of the special features is long. The low flight and maintenance costs and high compatibility with the most common sensor and payload systems for a wide range of uses make the HT-100 an economical alternative to conventional helicopters. At the same time, its certification by the Federal Office of Civil Aviation demonstrates that the UAV meets the exacting safety and quality standards of the Swiss government.
