Heka Aero is committed to advancing technology in manned and unmanned aircraft systems with an emphasis on eVTOL aircraft. For over 100 years the principles of flight have remained unchanged. The Wright Brothers created the first airplane that used a wing for lift, a propeller for thrust, and control surfaces for steering. While planes have increased in size, capacity, and speed, very little else has changed. Heka is changing the paradigm of flight by creating technologies that combine control surfaces and propulsion into a single solution, driven through advanced software and electronics. These technologies provide benefits in efficiency, maneuverability, capability, and safety.
Heka Aero LLC was founded in 2017 by Christopher Marot.
