Airmobis is an international engineering studio. It provides aerodynamic calculations to European and global aircraft manufacturers and also develops an unmanned airplane – the Condor. In the middle of this year, the start-up also established a subsidiary in the Moravian-Silesian Innovation Center Ostrava (MSIC).

This technological product includes scalable vertical flight and landing technology. The advantage of the technology is the possibility of its application in freight drones to conventional airplanes.

Its founder, Etienn Vandam call the product a flying machine.

The Condor is a cargo drone but it will not look the way people are used to, it will not be a quadcopter  commonly seen in supermarkets. The machine is based on aerodynamics. Today's technological advances, particularly in the development of propulsion units and materials, offer the opportunity to take a look at aviation from other perspectives.  

The machine Airmobis is developing will be aerodynamically slender, that is, have lower energy consumption per kilometre and the ability to glide down in the event of a drive failure.

The company is based in Kunovice near Uherské Hradiště but they decide to expand it to the Moravian-Silesian Innovation Center in Ostrava. 

An important role played in particular by the fact that there are other technological start-ups, which are carefully selected with the emphasis on the use of cutting-edge technology. At the same time, there is a young entrepreneurial community emerging and developing here. These two factors influenced their decision to expand their business to Ostrava. They also welcome the opportunity to be in the direct contact with the VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava.
