NearSat and V-TOL have commenced flight trials of the Eagle Hawk III, an above 25kg capable fixed wing remotely piloted aircraft.
NearSat, the developer of the High Altitude (HALE) RPAS platform technology, has been collaborating with V-TOL on this project.
The Hawk II had conducted critical flight trials to 8000ft AMSL within CRT of Amberley.
We are preparing for new flight operations, so we expect to see the Hawk III operate well beyond it’s predecessor.Chief Remote Pilot Mark Xavier
The flight data collected from these trials will be used for high altitude research. NearSat continues to collaborate with us on this project. As a result we are expecting to see near space flights shortly!
