First in the world to launch pay-per-flight eVTOL operations

Average American: 54 Hours in Traffic Per Year1

In cities like New York, LA and San Francisco, average car speeds crawl at just 4-10 mph - not much faster than you can walk - and 85% of trips are just one person driving less than 15 miles. The world needs a faster, more affordable and sustainable way to get around.

Helicopter Meets Electric Scooter

We believe our Electric Vertical Takeoff & Landing (eVTOL) vehicles are the future of short-distance transportation. Personal scale and hover-optimized, they can takeoff and land virtually anywhere. 

HEXA: Revolutionizing Short-Range Urban Travel

Our very own HEXA is a cutting-edge electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Designed for accessible and thrilling personal flight, it has 18 independent electric motors, carbon fiber construction, and a user-friendly interface. Through a pay-per-flight model and a network of vertiports, we envision HEXA as the ideal solution for short-range urban travel, providing an escape from traffic and redefining the future of personal mobility.

FAQs

Why invest in startups?

Regulation CF allows investors to invest in startups and early-growth companies. This is different from helping a company raise money on Kickstarter; with Regulation CF Offerings, you aren’t buying products or merchandise - you are buying a piece of a company and helping it grow.

How much can I invest?

Accredited investors can invest as much as they want. But if you are NOT an accredited investor, your investment limit depends on either your annual income or net worth, whichever is greater. If the number is less than $124,000, you can only invest 5% of it. If both are greater than $124,000 then your investment limit is 10%.

How do I calculate my net worth?

To calculate your net worth, just add up all of your assets and subtract all of your liabilities (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence). The resulting sum is your net worth.

What are the tax implications of an equity crowdfunding investment?

We cannot give tax advice, and we encourage you to talk with your accountant or tax advisor before making an investment.

Who can invest in a Regulation CF Offering?

Individuals over 18 years of age can invest.

What do I need to know about early-stage investing? Are these investments risky?

There will always be some risk involved when investing in a startup or small business. And the earlier you get in the more risk that is usually present. If a young company goes out of business, your ownership interest could lose all value. You may have limited voting power to direct the company due to dilution over time. You may also have to wait about five to seven years (if ever) for an exit via acquisition, IPO, etc. Because early-stage companies are still in the process of perfecting their products, services, and business model, nothing is guaranteed. That’s why startups should only be part of a more balanced, overall investment portfolio.

When will I get my investment back?

The Common Stock (the "Shares") of LIFT Aircraft Inc. (the "Company") are not publicly-traded. As a result, the shares cannot be easily traded or sold. As an investor in a private company, you typically look to receive a return on your investment under the following scenarios: The Company gets acquired by another company. The Company goes public (makes an initial public offering). In those instances, you receive your pro-rata share of the distributions that occur, in the case of acquisition, or you can sell your shares on an exchange. These are both considered long-term exits, taking approximately 5-10 years (and often longer) to see the possibility for an exit. It can sometimes take years to build companies. Sometimes there will not be any return, as a result of business failure.

Can I sell my shares?

Shares sold via Regulation Crowdfunding offerings have a one-year lockup period before those shares can be sold under certain conditions.

Exceptions to limitations on selling shares during the one-year lockup period:
In the event of death, divorce, or similar circumstance, shares can be transferred to:
• The company that issued the securities
• An accredited investor
• A family member (child, stepchild, grandchild, parent, stepparent, grandparent, spouse or equivalent, sibling, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law, including adoptive relationships)

What happens if a company does not reach their funding target?

If a company does not reach their minimum funding target, all funds will be returned to the investors after the close of the offering.

How can I learn more about a company's offering?

All available disclosure information can be found on the offering pages for our Regulation Crowdfunding offering.

What if I change my mind about investing?

You can cancel your investment at any time, for any reason, until 48 hours prior to a closing occurring. If you’ve already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To submit a request to cancel your investment please email: investors@liftaircraft.com

How do I keep up with how the company is doing?

At a minimum, the company will be filing with the SEC and posting on its website an annual report, along with certified financial statements. Those should be available 120 days after the fiscal year end. If the company meets a reporting exception, or eventually has to file more reported information to the SEC, the reporting described above may end. If these reports end, you may not continually have current financial information about the company.

What relationship does the company have with DealMaker Securities?

Once an offering ends, the company may continue its relationship with DealMaker Securities for additional offerings in the future. DealMaker Securities’ affiliates may also provide ongoing services to the company. There is no guarantee any services will continue after the offering ends.

Why Should I Invest?

Investing in LIFT Aircraft is a strategic opportunity due to its pioneering role in the urban air mobility sector. As one of the first companies to introduce an eVTOL pay-per-flight service and develop a network of vertiports, LIFT is positioned as a market leader in this innovative field. The urban air mobility market is on a trajectory of significant growth, with projections suggesting it could be valued at over $1 trillion by 2040. This presents a substantial opportunity for investors to tap into a rapidly expanding market. Furthermore, LIFT has already demonstrated strong market demand and traction, evidenced by extensive waitlists for their services, pre-orders from operating partners, and successful funding rounds. Such indicators not only reflect the viability of their business model but also highlight the potential for substantial returns on investment as the market continues to evolve and expand.

How Will LIFT Make Money?

LIFT Aircraft generates revenue through a distinctive model centered around their HEXA eVTOL aircraft and vertiport operations. Their primary source of income comes from a pay-per-flight service, where customers pay for individual flights, with prices starting at $249. The 2-hour experience includes beginner flight training, LIFT’s virtual reality flight simulator and 8-15 minutes of flight time. . This approach appeals to those seeking an extraordinary flying experience without the need for full aircraft ownership or a pilot's license. Additionally, LIFT offers a membership model for frequent flyers, reducing the cost per flight and fostering customer loyalty. Beyond these direct consumer services, the company plans to operate multiple vertiport locations, which could potentially serve as hubs for various ancillary services and events, adding another layer to their revenue model.

On a larger scale, LIFT has established partnerships and pre-order agreements with operating partners who intend to purchase fleets of HEXA aircraft, representing a significant bulk of their sales revenue. They also engage in corporate partnerships and demonstrations, providing another revenue channel. Moreover, LIFT's contracts with government entities, including the US Air Force, contribute to their financial stream through government-funded projects and research. This multifaceted approach to revenue generation positions LIFT Aircraft advantageously in the growing urban air mobility market.

How Do I Know People Will Buy This Solution?

LIFT Aircraft has demonstrated significant traction, indicating a strong potential for widespread popularity. After six years of development and testing, including collaborations with the U.S. Air Force, they've successfully launched the first eVTOL pay-per-flight service. This launch was met with remarkable enthusiasm, evidenced by sold-out tours in 25 cities and over 15,000 people on waitlists, translating to nearly $4 million in potential revenue. Furthermore, the company has secured over 300 aircraft pre-orders from operating partners, amounting to more than $150 million in sales. This robust interest, both from the public and institutional partners, underscores the high demand and promising future of LIFT Aircraft's innovative urban air mobility solution.

Are There More Opportunities Ahead?

Many companies are trying to do it, including Airbus. This technology is only possible due to recent advancements in battery technology, so it’s now a race and LIFT is leading.

How do I get a return on my investment?

Investing in startups is risky and there is no guarantee you will get a return on your investment. However, an exit opens up the opportunity where you could convert your shares into cash or a more liquid asset. Exits include going public, getting acquired by a larger company, or our company buying back shares. If the value of our company grows, then you have a higher potential of making a profit on your investment during one of these exits.
You are investing in a pre-revenue company. Success will be measured in progress towards revenue. Future liquidation events could include acquisition or an IPO.

When will I receive my shares?

Shares will be rewarded after the investment funds clear. This typically takes around 3 weeks after investment.

Are there higher fees if you invest via credit card vs. ACH?

No, costs are the same, regardless of how you invest

Will you be paying out dividends to investors?

No.

When and where will LIFT Aircraft open its first location?

LIFT anticipates locations across the US, starting in 2023. We are allowing people to make advance flight reservations in 25 cities, and will aim to open locations in the order of the highest reservation totals.

How do advance reservations work?

We opened up waitlists for 25 cities in the US on Dec. 11th, 2018. There was no payment required to reserve your place on our waitlist. As the waitlists filled up, and in order to plan our US tour that we plan to begin in late 2023, we began to require waitlist reservation holders to confirm their bookings with 100% refundable prepayments. Your prepaid booking deposit confirms your spot on the waitlist. We will be updating advance reservation holders on the timeline for LIFT visiting each city - please understand that we cannot set a specific timeline for each city at this time, and it may take quite a long time to visit all 25 cities (up to 24 months or more). Your prepayment is refundable at any time for any reason. A limited number of "Super Early Bird" advance reservations will receive a 40% discount on the price of their flight, and "Early Bird" will receive 20% off - limited time and quantity.

Where will I be able to fly?

Hexa fits into the FAA’s Powered Ultralight category, under which flights are limited to daylight hours, in uncontrolled airspace (Class G, which is generally up to 700 or 1,200 above ground level everywhere except near major airports), and not over congested areas. Airspace boundaries are programmed into Hexa’s flight controller and aircraft will not be able to enter controlled airspace.

How far and fast can Hexa fly?

Hexa can fly for up to 15 minutes on a charge with 25% battery remaining for safety margin. Actual flight times are dependent on pilot weight and weather conditions, and will generally range from 8 to 15 minutes. Ultralights are limited to flying 63 mph (55 knots) airspeed, and flights will be software limited to about 45 mph in Beginner mode. Additional speed and maneuvering capabilities will be unlocked in Sport mode for advanced pilots.

How is the aircraft controlled?

There is a single joystick that controls pitch (forward / backward), roll (bank left / right), yaw (rotate left / right) and acceleration (up / down). Flight can also be controlled with the touch screen display, by voice commands like “Hexa, climb to 500 feet”, and remotely by LIFT-trained safety pilots. LIFT will constantly be developing and upgrading its aircraft and not all features will be available at launch.
On a larger scale, LIFT has established partnerships and pre-order agreements with operating partners who intend to purchase fleets of HEXA aircraft, representing a significant bulk of their sales revenue. They also engage in corporate partnerships and demonstrations, providing another revenue channel. Moreover, LIFT's contracts with government entities, including the US Air Force, contribute to their financial stream through government-funded projects and research. This multifaceted approach to revenue generation positions LIFT Aircraft advantageously in the growing urban air mobility market.

How much will it cost to fly?

The cost will be approximately $249 per 8-15 minute flight which is comparable in price to similar activities like helicopter tours, skydiving, hang gliding, scuba diving, etc. For a limited time, advance reservation holders will receive a 40% discount on their first flight ($149).

What training is required?

First time flyers will go through an orientation, watch a safety video and complete the training program in our virtual reality simulator - which will take approximately 1-2 hours from check in.

Is it safe?

Is it safe?All recreational, outdoor and sport activities carry some small amount of risk. Our goal is to make flying 10 times safer than other comparable activities like hang gliding, scuba diving, race driving, etc. We will accomplish this by leveraging highly redundant, semi autonomous, electric aircraft and by flying within a highly controlled environment with lots of infrastructure and support. Electric motors are inherently simple with only one moving part so one motor failing will be a very rare occurrence. Hexa can fly and land safely with up to 6 of its 18 motors out. It’s designed to withstand bird strikes and any other possible failures, but in the event of a catastrophic failure and loss of control of the aircraft, a ballistic parachute will deploy automatically. With 5 floats, Hexa can safely land and float on water, and operations will often take place over water.

How is LIFT Aircraft funded?

LIFT Aircraft is a privately funded company based in Austin, Texas.

Can groups of people fly together?

Yes, we will have a Group Mode where groups can fly together, communicate on a group intercom, fly in autonomous formations and even race around augmented reality ring courses. LIFT will be continuously upgrading its aircraft and flying experience and not all experiences will be available at launch.

Can I buy a Hexa?

LIFT Aircraft is not currently offering Hexas for sale to the general public.

Is Hexa certified by the FAA?

In the U.S., Hexa is approved for flight under FAR Part 103. Hexa conforms to the FAA’s Powered Ultralight classification for which FAA certification is not required or available. The base weight limit for Powered Ultralights is 254 lbs, and Hexa utilizes additional weight allowances for floats and safety equipment.

Is LIFT looking for partners to help open LIFT locations at tourist destinations, entertainment hubs and adventure parks?"

LIFT is exploring partnership opportunities with select entertainment companies with existing properties and operations that are suitable for LIFT. Please contact us using the link in the website footer labeled "Partners".
