Batteries are very good, but not for long-range flightGoal is long-range, heavy payload flight www . F L I G H T O F T H E C E N T U R Y . com

Infinite Range Electric Flight Technology www . F L I G H T O F T H E C E N T U R Y . com

2) INFINITE RANGE: Infinite range is achieved by recharging depleted UAV battery packs with freshly charged, rendezvous UAV battery packs on a continuing basis in flight.

1) EXTENDED RANGE: A greater than 90% range extension over current electric airplanes is realized by our patented battery pack jettison and recovery technology.

Infrastructure play: Specific challenges, but no deal breakers

NASA OTIS trajectory optimizer software acquired and appliedOur custom software layer optimizes UAV logisticsMATLAB Code performs vehicle optimizationPatent filings cover variety of UAV recharging scenarios

2014 Lindbergh Flight: Same Speed, No Gas! www . F L I G H T O F T H E C E N T U R Y . com

Success Means Significant Advancement has OccurredSuccess CriteriaExact route and mileage flown (further)Roosevelt Field, NY no longer existsEqual or faster average speed to Lindberghs (108 mph)Equal or lower altitude to that flown by LindberghMax 10,000 feet MSL (no Jetstream advantage)All-electric powered aircraft, carrying no fossil fuels, no helium (no blimps)Manned aircraft, flown by the pilot(s) on-board, non-stopUsher in the next era of flightChange how people fly in the future
