Ampyx Power Flight Operations have performed hundreds of flight test campaigns with 8 prototypes since 2009. The first series of prototypes (AP1, 10kW, grid connected) demonstrated automatic crosswind power generation in 2011. Since 2013 the second-generation prototypes (AP2, 20kW, grid connected) proved  autonomy in all operational modes within a wide range of environmental conditions. Recently AP2 has also been used as test-bed for the AP3 Flight Control System.

 

Ampyx Power Flight Operations has a 50+ years combined experience in manned and unmanned aviation.
