Prototyping the Aerospace

of tomorrow

An initiative by students of the Technical University of Munich.



Our Mission

Shaping tomorrow’s aviation by engineering prototypes to solve real-world problems. We do not only design and simulate visionary concepts, we also build and test them

The first eVTOL defibrillator transport in Germany! 


In rural areas the ambulance often takes a long time to arrive. Through the usage of drones we can shorten the time until a defibrillator can be applied – therefore increasing the survival chance of a patient by up to three times. 



About us

Founded in 2019, HORYZN is a student initiative consisting of 58 Bachelor, Master and PhD students from the Technical University of TUM (TUM). Our goal is to apply the theoretical knowledge gained in our studies by developing electrical Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). As an international and interdisciplinary team, we come up with innovative solutions for real-world problems.

Thanks to our close cooperation with chairs from the newly-founded Department of Aerospace and Geodesy and as part of NEXT Prototypes e.V. we are an interface between research, industry, and the students.

As part of our first project, we developed the largest eVTOL UAV in the history of the Technical University of Munich, in our next project we are testing a medical use case – the transport of defibrillators – and thus encourage the social debate regarding the use of civil UAVs.



Halve the Response Time. Triple the Survival Rate.

When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward. For there you have been, and there you will always long to return.
