Our mission is to shape and build tomorrow’s aviation today by engineering prototypes for real-world challenges. We do not only design and simulate visionary concepts, we also build and test them.
Right now we are conceptualizing, designing, building and testing an electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) development series called SILENCIO for logistic purposes.
Founded in 2019, HORYZN consists of a highly motivated international and interdisciplinary team of 58 students who are pursuing their Bachelor's, Master's or PhD degrees.
MEET OUR NEW TEAM
After a long recruitment process we are delighted to welcome our new team members to HORYZN! Our team is now made up of 58 members from 21 different countries.
We are certain that we will benefit from each other's expertise and consolidate our knowledge. We are eager to start our next project all together!
Our Journey Has Just Begun
After just 11 months of our creation, we have achieved our first major goal: a successful fly-off of the complete design mission of SILENCIO Gamma. We calculated an efficiency of 131.33 m/Wh and flew 131.04 m/Wh!
We will continue living up to our vision - to play a decisive role in shaping the aviation of tomorrow.
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.
First, we started by performing hover tests, followed by tuning cruise flight and mastering transition, the most challenging segment of the design mission.
On the 8th of June 2020 we presented our VTOL concept to our academic and industry supporters via Live Stream on Youtube. We also talked about our extensive and modularly applicable design loop and flight testing & control.
