Aviation for everyone

Our goal at Airhart Aeronautics is to build the most advanced airplane in the industry. We believe technology should be brought to bear on any problem we encounter rather than remain satisfied with existing solutions. By designing an aircraft around safety, reliability, ease of operation, and advanced technology, we not only make it easier for our customers to accomplish their goals but also shatter the stereotypical image of small aircraft.

Our mission

Airhart is revolutionizing the personal airplane by building safe, beautiful, intuitive-to-fly airplanes to give everyone the freedom of flight.  

Our Vision

We’re building the easiest-to-fly, safest personal airplane to remove barriers to flight. Our aircraft will be safer and more intuitive to fly than any other personal aircraft on the market.
