Metro Hop

Profile
Metro Hop is a Bay Area-based aviation startup that has designed an all-electric, fixed wing aircraft for sustainable travel in metropolitan areas. The Metro Hop engineers and builders are from the University of Stuttgart e Genius team, co-winners of the NASA Green Flight Challenge. Virtually silent, Metro Hop operates from the densest urban locations around the world, both day and night. An international patent-pending active landing gear system allows the aircraft to takeoff and land in 60 meters. What's more, the aircraft cruises at 400 km/h and holds two passengers; it uses existing battery technology, has a well-known flight envelope, and a clear path to certification. Metro Hop makes a trillion-dollar industry possible: the aircraft operate on $39 fares, making them a commonplace tool for any business, large or small. See the aircraft in action at metrohop.aero.
