ALIA-250c

ALIA-250 is the result of 3 years of precise design and development. ALIA takes inspiration from the Arctic tern. Terns migrate further than any other bird, visiting every ocean and the vicinity of every continent on earth. ALIA began as a simple sketch, designed on basic principles of engineering to fly in the most efficient manner possible. Its ability to take off and land vertically and then transition to long-range flight is a defining characteristic.

ELECTRIC PROPULSION - BATTERIES

Air cooled and environmentally sealed, battery blocks provide the base of our EPU system.

ELECTRIC PROPULSION - INVERTERS

Dual inverters do the job of harnessing the freshly charged battery and converting for the motors. With safety as priority, our inverters are designed with 3 lines of communication with the system and built with redundancy in case of failure.

ELECTRIC PROPULSION - MOTORS

Our unique air-cooled motors are designed to provide high torque density and redundancy while maximizing efficiency. Designed and manufactured in-house with high precision and process control, the lift and pusher motors are the cornerstone of our ability to fly long distances economically and in a environmentally friendly way.

SAFETY

BETA promotes a culture of safety and simplicity.  The need for the highest levels of safety and robustness in the aircraft is serviced by elegant redundancy, appropriate diversity of implementation, and simplicity of control.  BETA Team Members achieve their goals by removing every unnecessary element.

BETA Subscale Operations

SUBSCALE FLIGHT TESTING

To accelerate the development and certification process of ALIA 250, our engineering team completes flight testing with subscale aircraft. The characteristics of the subscale aircraft are iteratively tuned to match the full-scale aircraft.

SUBSCALE DELIVERY

This extremely capable unmanned delivery aircraft shares its engineering, design, and flight characteristics with the full scale aircraft from nose to tail.
