Convertible round

Rather than investing and immediately receiving shares, in this round payments will be transferred directly to the company and shares issued at a future date. A convertible allows a company to raise funds without having to agree a valuation. For more information please view our FAQs.

Idea

Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV) has been developing Airlander's technology since 2007 and has an established global lead. Airlander is a new approach to aviation that aims to provide low-carbon regional mobility, airborne cruises, logistics, and communications and surveillance solutions. We calculate that Airlander can offer 10x improvements in cost and capability in these challenges.

Our path to zero-carbon aviation:

- Already flown at full scale with 75% lower emissions, based on HAV's calculations

- Conventional version planned in service from 2024

- Hybrid-electric version with 90% lower emissions planned in service from 2025

- By 2030 we plan an all-electric Airlander 10 with zero emissions

The market for Airlander technology has been independently estimated at over US$50 billion over the next 20 years. HAV is now focused on securing launch orders for the production of Airlander 10. We hold letters of intent confirming interest in 15 commercial aircraft, with defence proposals also under initial discussion with customers. Airlander 10 plans to be in service from 2024.

HAV is the only company in the world to have flown a full-scale prototype hybrid aircraft. Over the past 10+ years, we've spent £116m developing Airlander. We're now production-ready with a clear path to certification.

Airlander has been featured in The Telegraph, Financial Times, BBC, GQ and Robb Report to name a few.
