ACS Aviation Z-300 eVTOL Aircraft Concept and Specifications – The Z-300 is an electrically powered aircraft that can vertical take off and land (VTOL) which was designed and developed by ACS Aviation, a Brazilian airline. The company was founded in 2006 by a group of experienced flight engineers. ACS Aviation is located in São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil, which is one of the leading industrial and research centers with an emphasis on aerospace science in Latin America.

ACS Aviation has participated in the development of 12 unmanned and unmanned aircraft and they remain at the forefront of the development of Brazil's national aeronautics, after becoming the first company to design, manufacture and fly conventional takeoffs and landing (CTOL) aircraft powered by all electric powered aircraft known as SORA-e. The Z-300 aircraft was developed based on the SORA-e aircraft. The Z-300 concept was launched in 2017 and continues to be developed today.

ACS Aviation Z-300 Design

ACS Aviation Z-300 aircraft has a tandem tapered wing configuration with an electric motor attached to the wing. On the front wing, the electric motor is attached to the front edge of the wing, while on the rear wing the electric motor is attached to the back edge of the wing. The fuselage is made of all composite material to make the aircraft lighter, while maintaining strength.

For vertical flights, the outer third of the front wing tilts upward causing the propeller to be mounted in the same direction as the propeller above the inclined wing. The remaining part in the front wing is permanently attached to the fuselage and does not move. For the rear wing, about half of the outer rear wing is tilted down and the propeller is tilted down as well and the propeller is under the wing during vertical flight. The remaining rear wing, permanently attached to the fuselage.

The ACS Aviation Z-300 has a transparent canopy above the cockpit which provides exceptional visibility in all directions for both passengers. The design of the eVTOL aircraft takes full advantage of Distributed Electric Drivers (DEP) (highly efficient, safe and reliable propulsion; excellent handling, weight reduction and reduced aircraft complexity), the benefits of aircraft wings to maximize its flight range and benefits vertical helicopter flight with angled wings and propellers.

ACS Aviation Z-300 Specifications and Engine

ACS Aviation Z-300 aircraft can accommodate 2 passengers with tandem seating configuration. The aircraft is powered by four electric motors, each of which produces an output power of 35 kW and uses 100% electricity as its power source. The aircraft can fly with a cruise speed of 222 km / h and is able to cover a range of up to 300 km. The total flight time of the aircraft is 90 minutes. The aircraft has a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 1,000 kg (2,204 lbs) VTOL.

ACS Aviation Z-300 Landing gear

The ACS Aviation Z-300 aircraft has a dragger tail type landing gear (two wheels under the wing and a wheel under the rear steering wheel). The aircraft landing mechanism includes a front landing gear that is permanently mounted under the front wing. The Z-300 has a fairly large steering wheel at the rear of the aircraft without a horizontal stabilizer. The third wheel for the landing gear is located just below the steering wheel with reduced complexity. The aircraft's weight is also kept to a minimum without hydraulic and associated mechanical gear used with retractable landing wheels.
