Right now we are conceptualizing, designing and building an electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) development series called SILENCIO.
The third prototype, SILENCIO Gamma, will compete in the New Flying Competition (NFC).
The NFC is an international biennial competition for student organizations to present their innovative concepts for tomorrow's aviation.
The event in Hamburg from October 22nd to 26th 2020 will focus on innovative aircraft in the field of Urban Air Mobility (UAM).
Founded in 2019, HORYZN consists of a highly motivated international and interdisciplinary team of 31 students in Bachelor's, Master's and PhD studies.

silencio gamma rollout
On the 8th of October 2020 we presented the SILENCIO Gamma to our supporters at the Courtyard by Marriott Oberpfaffenhofen München Süd. It was a huge success!
We would especially like to thank our supporters for making this journey possible!
The last couple of weeks we have been busy testing SILENCIO Gamma for the NFC. First, we started by performing hover tests, followed by tuning cruise flight and mastering transition, the most challenging segment of the design mission.
Only a few days to go for the competition! Stay tuned...
On the 8th of June 2020 we presented the competition we are participating in and our related VTOL concept to our academic and industry supporters via Live Stream on Youtube. We also talked about our design loop process and flight testing & control.
