Skyryse One Makers Rewriting the Book On Helicopter Design

California Startup Offers Two Touch Panels, a Joystick, and Clean-Sheet Helo Design for $1.8 Million An irritatingly silicon-valley name and similarly fashion-forward flight deck mark the “Skyryse One”, the “world’s first production helicopter operated with a single control stick and two touch screens.” The new helicopter model comes courtesy of an LA-based company (Skyryse, of course) looking to bring out a “new era in flight” where “piloting any aircraft is simple and safe”. In typical Cali fashion, the biggest impediment to easy flying? Software! As such, the firm is developing its very own proprietary operating system, SkyOS, which will “offer simplified control and an aircraft-agnostic, triply-redundant fly-by-wire system.”
