Beast Horus

The next level in personal jet flying

Flying a jet is the ultimate goal for ANY pilot, but with jet prices starting at 1.5M$, this is an endeavor not anyone can share. This is where the Beast One steps in and provides an aircraft that is safe, fast, efficient and all that with the price-tag of an average four-seater aircraft.

Contrary to other contributors in the Microjet category, this is a clean sheet design, where no compromises were made regarding its design goals. The Beast One does not have the claim to be fastest, or smallest or lightest in the world, but there is one thing it definitely is: the best overall package if you want to own a jet that does way more than just get you from A to B.

With its aerobatic capabilities, the exceptional handling qualities and high range, it is up to you whether you go for the 1$/mile hamburger or let the journey be the reward.

Performance Features

  • Gentle stall characteristics

    Not only is the stall speed rather low (comparable to faster piston aircraft) but also very progressive. This leads to a gentle stall characteristic, with lots of reaction time left to counteract.

  • Optimized airfoil

    While the airfoils are quite similar to the 64-215 (wing root), 63-315 (aileron area) and 63-012 (tail), they are a complete evolution of the NACA airfoils done by a renown german aerodynamicist. This provides up to +30% more lift at equal or less drag!

  • Sophisticated wing design

    Everything from profile, sweep, incidence, etc. is continuously changing over the almost elliptic wingform, ensuring top of the edge performance from landing speed up to high cruise.

  • Trailing link landing gear

    The landing gear is provided with trailing links, featuring shocks with extra large stroke. These enable soft-field capability and greatly improve landing behavior, even for hard landings. Additionally, the brakes are 1/3 stronger than the competition, greatly improving safety and landing roll.

  • Jet integration

    The integrated engine design allows for reduced cruise drag and therefore extended range.

  • Airbrakes

    Most jet aircraft have the problem of shedding excess speed during descent. With the intgrated airbrakes it is possible to have steeper descends and shorter landing rolls.

Safety Features

  • >26G safety cell

    Even with the best passive safety features and a parachute in place, you will not want to miss the added safety of a cockpit which will not just fold around you. Exceeding the 26G load requirement for frontal crashes and providing an itegrated roll-over bar, the cockpit is built to protect.

  • 13.5G ultimate load

    For aerobatics, it is nice to have a true 6G capability, but even nicer to know that your aircraft will sustain 9G for short durations and that the spar is constructed to only fail above a brethtaking 13.5G.

  • Ballistic rescue system

    Sometimes avoiding confrontation is the best solution. And sometimes, if confrontation comes in form of a mountainside or uneven terrain, a ballistic rescue system will prove it's additional weight is worth every pound.

  • Bullet proof tank

    In the unlikely event that you end up in a situation where everything else has failed you, it will be a great relief to know that all the fuel is stored in a bullet proof bladder inside the safety cell. Right where it belongs and nowhere else.

Ergonomy Features

  • Hands-on cockpit design

    Fighter pilots know the concept of "HOTAS" (hands on throttle and stick). Everything in the cockpit is assembled in a way that you never have to let go of control. Essential for mission buttons are all located to the left, non-essential buttons in the middle and the right side free for the backup instruments.

  • Minimized workload

    Flying a jet is hard enough, so let the aircraft help you whereever possible. Flaps have auto-retract to take stress out of take-offs. The landing lights will turn into wig-wag mode as long as fly above 100kt and airbrake activation or TOGA-mode can be selcted from the thrust lever.
