Oberaigner Aerospace

Force driving the development of propulsion systems

We created the “New Aviation Concept” for Oberaigner Aerospace GmbH. This commission comprised the designing of the interior, exterior and cockpit of a resources-conserving aircraft. This plane will be used by medium-sized companies.

The Oberaigner Group was founded in Upper Austria. Its field of business is the development of innovative vehicle technologies. To this end, it maintain facilities in Austria and Germany. They carry out commissions involving the production of components forming part of drive trains. These subsystems are supplied to  Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Opel, Nissan and Volkswagen. The company also offers proprietary and special-purpose technologies, and refits vehicles for four-wheel drive and manufactures vehicles. The company's R&D departments create new components for incorporation into aircraft and engines.

New Aviation Concept

Efficient, highly advanced and affordable

For half a century, the propeller was the sole form of propulsion available to aircraft. This technology was then replaced by jet engines, meaning that the propeller is today rarely used in civil aviation. This is unjustified. Propeller-driven airplanes are more cost-advantageous and environmental friendly for low-altitude, short flights. These assets make propeller-based systems highly suitable for incorporation into our concept of creating a resources-conserving business-use aircraft.

This airplane features two tested and reliable Rolls Royce turbo prop engines. Their advanced technologies guarantee the attainment of the highest levels of security, passenger comfort and consumption. This airplane is also incredibly easy to fly and maintain.

The New Aviation Concept reinterprets aviation design. It uses light-gauge systems to achieve a great compactness and simplicity of configuration. In doing such, it relies upon meeting the automotive standards of placing a greater priority on functionality and efficiency than on excessive luxury.

Great comfort through spacious cross-section

The aircraft has the most spacious pressure cabin of any model in its class. The cabin is entirely made out of wound carbon fiber. This method of construction enables the creation of a new-look cross-section, one with points of transition showing greater smoothness of connection as compared to those achieved by conventional aluminum-based models.  This provides the new aircraft's fuselage with USPs (unique selling points) versus the cabins of standard aircraft. The light-gauge method of design also optimally facilitates the resources-conserving operation of the new aircraft.

The design has created a spacious and comfortable cabin accommodating 2 flight crew and up to 9 passengers. The all-encompassing configuration of the seats assures them of having optimal levels of ergonomics.  The illumination engenders a pleasing ambience. The cargo area is easy to reach during flights. In contrast to conventional aircraft of this size, this model has a water-flush toilet.

Cockpit: optimal ergonomics and security

The integrative approach taken to the interior has also been applied to the designing of the cockpit. The central placement of its compact console makes it highly accessible. The cockpit is a comfortable place in which to work. This is thanks to its easy-to-understand array, the well-conceived stacking and storage space for folders, and the holders for beverages and iPads. This is optimally complemented by its sun shades and illumination concept. The specially-configured control stick forms an integral part of the design and is highly ergonomic. All of the instruments have duplicates, so as to guarantee the highest level of security.

Appealing forms and innovative features

The cockpit and the loading door in the aircraft's stern guarantee an optimal degree of accessibility to interior decorations and loads. Windows are arrayed in a band featuring a uniformity of design. This gives the aircraft a uniquely streamlined overall look. The innovative approach taken to the aircraft dispenses substitutes the conventional system, which uses heaters to deice wings, with a special protective lacquer. This reduces costs of manufacturing and saves on resources during operation.

We are currently looking for partners with which we can further develop and deploy this concept.
