Crowdfunding first?


    What happened to hybrid self-launch Glowfly?

    A little re-structuring later and we've become GoFlyAircraft and partnered with leading equity crowdfunder Crowdcube –perhaps an aviation first. The due diligence verification and Crowdcube approval process has been exacting. Crowdfunding works by mobilising networks to build momentum. We need to raise a minimum of £500,000 to productionize the prototype work and begin series-build of this unique aircraft. Invest in GoFlyAircraft now and be part of making it happen, generous tax relief incentives apply.

    www.crowdcube.com/gofly

    We got as far as we did on very limited funds but proved the concept works as intended and at the disruptive price, before funds ran outlast year. We did not quite fly the prototype and won't do so until we have our custom wheel hub motors and can demonstrate a fully production standard aircraft (we used a temporary motor for proof test, hub motors will be better). Glowfly is a truly independently operable self-launch sailplane and, importantly for our world market, the e-drive taxi and manoeuvre capability enables airstrip use almost anywhere, even airport operation amongst other traffic. The adopted wing is a standard certified part and the airframe dimensional configuration is generic, so the fly part isn't a big step now.

    Our multi-national team is hugely respected and experienced - including Dr.Ing.Vittorio Pajno, Prof.Loek Boermans, Mike Borgelt and Tom Atwood, names you may know, as well as our new virtual FD Declan Connolly and test pilot Dave Unwin. GoFlyAircraft is ready to go, just needs this fundraise to be successful.

    Great international publicity and more than 300 sales inquiries from 37 countries so far, as well as potential sales agent inquiries from 15 countries - 13 in the USA alone - confirm our market is global. We can foresee at least 500 profitable sales over the life of this first model, more when our marketing plan takes off. It's not simply 300kg UK domestic SSDR, the vast majority of what we produce will be exported, and mostly outside Europe. The adopted ASTM Light Sport Glider code means we can, for more pilot/fuel payload, go usefully heavier elsewhere and new detachable tips extend the wing to 15m for a bit more performance too. But no part longer than 6m means everything still fits inside a short trailer, for go-anywhere portability and take-home convenience.

    HMRC has confirmed advance assurance for both SEIS and EIS making these super-generous tax breaks available to qualifying UK taxpayers investing now. The first £150,000 worth of investments is SEIS 50% tax relief eligible - half your investment back - first-come-first-served, EIS 30% reliefs after that. To invest, go to Crowdcube registration and click the green “Join” or “Join Crowdcube”buttons. It's easy, and no monies are taken until our minimum target is reached. You can get priority access now - the wider public offer will start only after our own networks have had first bite.

    The offer is approved as a financial promotion by Crowdcube Ventures Ltd- authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority No.572026. Remember #InvestAware. Investments of this nature carry risks to your capital, as well as potential rewards.

    Please spread the word, share the news, invest. Help get a new British hybrid sailplane successfully exported around the World.

The UK Tax Breaks won't be applicable to Italian residents, but some of you might be UK Taxpayers...... I also think GoFly could be looking for an Italian Sales Agent...... Any enquiries can be sent via my messenger for forwarding to the CEO or you can contact the CEO directly to GoFly management.

Quando ho letto "ibrido" mi è venuta l'orticaria ma poi ho visto che l'aliante rulla e fa la maggior parte della corsa di decollo con un motore elettrico che agisce sulle ruote, e questa mi sembra un'ottima idea visto che l'efficienza è sicuramente maggiore di quella di un'elica a basse velocità.
Poi hanno pensato ad un jet per decollarle e salire. Sicuramente meglio di un motore+elica+meccanismo per tirare fuori e dentro il tutto.
Un jet consuma da matti ma è leggero e ingombra relativamente poco.

Non so se riusciranno a mantenere il prezzo di riferimento sui 70.000$ ma mi sembra un bel progetto.

We use 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 2 to pull a trigger. I'm lazy and I'm tired of smiling.
