Our Group

ELECTRIC AIRPLANES + PROPULSION

We Build and Fly. From manned electric and hybrid-electric aircraft, to megawatt-class propulsion units, we enjoy an unmatched record of successful program execution in the aerospace industry.  


UNMANNED SYSTEMS (UAS)

Yates Electrospace Corporation has been executing contracts with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and other Government Entities and Tier-1 suppliers since 2012. Our flagship UAS product, Silent Arrow® is a heavy payload 1,000 pound autonomous drone delivery aircraft designed in-house to save lives and end suffering in military and disaster relief situations. 


ADVENTURES + RECORDS

We refuse to sit still. Our passion comes from a companywide dedication to pushing limits that has resulted in 18 world records or firsts. In 2018 we fly again and the public is invited.


RESEARCH + TECHNOLOGY

Our research arm was founded in 2004 to develop and license high-value patents to the aerospace and transportation sectors.  With seminal technology available covering mid-air recharging, destination assurance, kinetic energy recovery, and drone delivery, we are flying out in front of the electric aircraft revolution.
