Forward Air Transportation

The last-mile transport for remote and hard-to-reach areas.

Our Mission

to transform the last-mile transport for remote and hard-to-reach areas.

Our mission is to transform the last-mile transport for remote and hard-to-reach areas. Whether it is a delivery of goods, pick-up of an injured person or drop-off of food packets, our aerial transport system makes it faster, cheaper and more efficient. We are taking a modular approach to design a versatile aerial transport ecosystem that minimizes the efforts as required by current systems to achieve the desired results. Avilus brings the results of our research carried over more than a decade, in the field of aerial systems, to the market. By closely working with the industry partners and experts in the field, we aim to innovate and transform the aerial transport industry for the last-mile leg of the journey.

Our Vision

Applications in public security, such as disaster response, communication setup, rapid supply delivery etc. 
still have no easy solutions.

With the tremendous innovation over the last decade in unmanned aerial systems, multiple applications have been enabled that ease the workflow to a certain extent. However, there are a few applications in public safety, such as disaster response, communication setup, rapid supply delivery, etc., that still have no easy solutions. By taking the application-oriented ecosystem approach, we envision deploying an ecosystem in the hour of need rather than a specific solution for a specific task. This approach provides solutions to multiple challenges in the field enabling a seamless experience and reduces the operational overhead of personnel, hardware, etc.  


Two Hearts are Beating in Our Chest.

The core competence of AVILUS lies in the development and integration of flight systems. Therefore, we orient our in-house processes and company structures towards the regulatory framework of EASA (Part 21 Subpart J) which forms the basis for Design Organizations. In the course of the latter we integrate the realization of authority requirements as well as customer requirements within our development processes. This workflow is accompanied by a design assurance system as well as compliance verification and yields the approved design data of our flight systems. Following our philosophy, certified partner enterprises take over the series production of the AVILUS solutions based on our expertise and in close collaboration with our in-house experts.

The second heart that beats in the chest of AVILUS lies contrarily to the development aspects within the domain of operations. In the scope of the latter we elaborate and apply for operational authorizations of a UAS in the Specific Category (according to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 and 2019/945). This includes the risk assessment (SORA) as well as the necessary composition and development of a Concept of Operations (ConOps) for the aerial vehicle. After approval by the National Aviation Authority (LBA), AVILUS can provide the training of the remote crew in our in-house simulator environment, flight test as well as flight operations on a regular basis. The operational aspects of our company are structured according to the prerequisites necessary for the issuing of a LUC (Light UAS Operator Certificate). In perspective, this license enables AVILUS to autonomously issue operational authorizations (authority privilege).
