Our Vision

SAMAD Aerospace is a technology start-up based in the United Kingdom. Our dream is to revolutionise the way humans and goods fly around the world. To achieve that, a group of world-renowned experts in their respective fields - including aerodynamics, aircraft design and propulsion systems - are working together to develop a range of products that will redefine the air travelling experience. We envisage a transportation system safer than a car, completely flexible, eco-friendly, less time-consuming than any existing plane or train whilst being as luxurious as a private jet. This is the unique combination of features that will be offered by e-Starling and Starling Jet in a door-to-door human air transportation; thus, completely changing the travel perspective.

 

Our aircraft products give back their users' most valuable asset - their time - allowing them to achieve more, when compared with existing travel options. Now that we have a proof of concept, 2022 will be the first of a four-year project that will lead to the commercialisation of the e-Starling 2026. If you share our vision and are as thrilled as we are about this exciting journey, we will gladly consider partnership and investment propositions that will help us achieve our vision.

Our Business Opportunity

Technology driven for an engineered future

  • Market forecasts show 6 fold growth in air transport Increasing congestion in the cities increases the total travel.
  • Even a one hour regional flight can mean an additional 2-3 hours travel to/from airport.
  • This increasing air travel demands greener technologies.

Timeline

2018

S1D & S2D

  • S1D. The first flying prototype of the e-Starling was developed to prove the SAMAD Aerospace concept. It has been named the S1 and is a 10% scaled fully-electric and remotely piloted aircraft. It was first showcased in EBACE 2018, in Geneva.
  • S2D. Fully electric and remotely piloted aircraft, 20% scale of the e-starling, also a concept demonstrator. It was showcased in EBACE 2018 in Geneva.

2019

S1P & S2P

  • S1P. To enhance understanding of control mechanisms and the performance of larger fan propellers, the S1P was designed. It has been named the S1 and is a 10% scaled fully electric and remotely piloted aircraft. It was tested successfully in 2019. The S1P uses contrarotating propellers to generate lift
  • S2P.  Samad Aerospace progressed to a larger prototype with a wingspan of 20% the size of the e-Starling, namely the S2P. This aircraft was also fully electrically powered and remotely piloted and used to demonstrate a more scalable prototype. High RPM electric ducted fans (EDF) were used to create lift.

2020

S5U

  • S5U. 50%-scale prototypes of the e-Starling, CTOL versions. The first milestone of this phase was the delivery of an unmanned version (S5U). It has a wing- span of approximately 8 meters. The S5U prototype underwent flight tests in Sept 2020.

2021

S5M-Starling

  1. A huge year for Samad Aerospace! 2021 saw numerous successful unmanned VTOL hover tests (fully electric), shortly followed by the ground-breaking manned VTOL hover test (fully electric).
  2. In collaboration with partners, the first half of 2022 will witness the company’s first full transition VTOL flight test (fully electric)

The second half of 2022 will see the design and build of the production prototype of Starling Cargo, under certification.  

2025

e-Starling

  • e-Starling. 5-Seater hybrid electric powered passenger aircraft with full VTOL capability. Cruising speed will be 250 Mph with a range starting from 780 miles, maximum endurance expected: 7 hours (depending on payload/speed).
