Features

Yes. But you can drive it, so you may not need to!

KiiRA is a dual-mode vehicle- it is both a car and a hexacopter. Due to its foldable arms, you can just store KiiRA in your garage or park it at the car/motorcycle park!


Regulations

Is KiiRA an experimental aircraft?

Yes.


Could KiiRA have been made to fit in the ultralight category?

It would make KiiRA's flight time very short.


Garudeus Aviation

What does Garudeus mean?

Garudeus is the faux latinization of Garuda, a mythical being with wings who could fly. When Garudeus was conceptualized, the first concept was of an exoskeleton based flying contraption. This evoked the comparison with Garuda. While this first concept is now abandoned, the name remains.


How can I invest or purchase stock in Garudeus?

Thanks for your interest. Please email us at info@garudeus.com


How can I work at Garudeus?

While we are not actively seeking employees, we do entertain job request. Please send us your cover letter, resume, transcripts, and samples/examples at info@garudeus.com. We request that candidates apply for only one position.


Why is it called KiiRA?

KiiRA is the Nepalese term for an insect. While humans normally look up to birds for flight, it is the insects that have more versatile abilities to fly. KiiRA mimics the same versatility of insects. Hence the name.
