Kitty Hawk’s “Kitty Hawk” electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft recently obtained military airworthiness approval through the US Air Force’s “Agile First” program, becoming the fourth company to obtain this approval. The first three are Joby Aviation, Beta Technologies and Lift Aircraft.
Kitty Hawk conducted a demonstration flight of the "Kitty Hawk" aircraft to the U.S. Army's "Agile First" project team in May this year, mainly simulating medical evacuation and logistics exercises, as well as fully autonomous remote driving tests. Colonel Nathan Diller, director of the US Army’s AFWERX Prime program, said that military airworthiness approval means that the US Air Force will provide Kitty Hawk with test flight costs to ensure follow-up research and civil aviation certification.
