UK start-up Samad Aerospace has begun building a 50% scale model of its six-seat eStarling hybrid-electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, and says it will “commercialise” a version of this scaled design, and bring it to market in 2022 as a two-seat hyper-luxury aircraft and utility vehicle.
The Starling Jet now joins electric or hybrid flying commuter craft from sources all over the world. A Middle-East backed, London-based project, the Starling Jet is swoopy and high-winged, and comes in three sizes with different missions.
The “World’s first hybrid-electric VTOL business jet” has been revealed by a Bedfordshire-based company.

A British startup Samad Aerospace plans a series of electric and hybrid VTOL air vehicles for the upcoming air mobility revolution. The company recently launched Q-Starling, a concept of a two-seater vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) passenger plane.
Another crucial milestone has been met in SAMAD AEROSPACE’S Starling Programme. November 2020 has seen the successful conventional take-off and landing (CTOL) flight test of the company’s 50% scale fully electric aircraft.
SAMAD aerospace, the British hybrid electric VTOL aviation company launched its concept for Q-Starling, a high-end Personal Air Vehicle (PAV). With the innovative design taking elements from both fast jets and VTOL aircraft, SAMAD says the Q-Starling “represents a new pinnacle in future sustainable aircraft design.”
UK-headquartered start-up Samad Aerospace has unveiled its latest hybrid-electric aircraft development – a two-person vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) personal jet for the luxury market that is targeted for service entry in 2023.
