PT Aeroterrascan - PT Chroma International "Dadali" autonomous aircraft
Permalink  
 


Indonesian take on the eVTOL air taxi trend, first revealed at the AeroSummit 2019 event in South Jakarta, presented by Thomas Djamaluddin - chairman of LAPAN (Lembaga Penerbangan dan Antariksa Nasional, or National Institute of Aeronautics and Space).

It is a single-seat design, intended for only one passenger relying solely on autonomous flight capability, though emergency manual control is included (risky for passengers with no flight training!) It is equipped with 16 vertical propellers and is reported to be able to reach a height of 40 meters above sea level, capable of carrying up to 120 kilograms in the passenger section and an additional 50 for luggage (if I'm understanding the data correctly). Aside from being a passenger transporter it is also intended for logistical support, like cargo hauling and transporting medical supplies.

I don't know if any actual trials have been done yet.

It appears that they are improving on the design with a version of "Dadali" called a Multi Purpose Aerial Vehicle (MPAV), shown here in model form:
