Founded in August 2016 by Robert Gomez, aeroG Aviation LLC is focused on creating industry-changing innovations. With theoretical proofs and simulation science to determine the feasibility and capabilities of our projects, aeroG provides technical data, blueprints, and support for our aircraft designs directly to aircraft manufacturers: “Creating business partnerships to help develop new forms of transportation.”
Before the company was founded, the team’s first simulation project was the UV-4 UAV, an unmanned cargo aircraft developed at Bergen Community College in 2015 by the company founder. The project was funded by the college’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) grant. The project was first released on Microsoft Flight Simulation X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v3 in Jan. 2017. The research developed by this group formed the basis for aeroG Aviation LLC. The aG-4 is a hybrid-electric VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft that can cruise at 280+ kt (322+ mph, 519+ km/h) and transport passengers and/or cargo. It was launched in Nov. 2017 based on the revised UV-4.
The aG-4 can use either hybrid-electric or full-electric to power the tilting ducted rotors. For the hybrid version, the engine’s exhaust nozzles (located both sides of the fuselage) rotates its position to add vectored thrust in vertical takeoff, transition and forward flight modes. This aircraft can operate in excess of 300 kt (345 mph, 556 km/h) while only producing thrust from the two forward fans in the cruise mode, cutting down on power consumption and noise while during the longest part of flight. In addition to the lift produced by the ducts, the aircraft is designed as a lifting body. The aircraft also has the increased safety of a ballistic recovery system. The aircraft would fly manned in a highly augmented cockpit. It would also utilize multiple OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screens that display images taken from the exterior of the fuselage, binding the passenger’s sense of sight and imagination with the illusion of a glass cabin.
The goal of the development team was to create an aircraft that can serve aviation customers and cargo deliverers who need vertical takeoff and landing and want the high-end performance of a small jet or turboprop aircraft.
In 2018, aeroG Aviation completed the design and specifications for its manned passenger aircraft and the UV-4 is released for Lockheed-Martin Prepar3D v4 introducing structural improvements and autopilot features. In 2019, the company filed for an aeronautical patent to protect their unique design and method of propulsion.
Currently, our startup research company is searching for partnerships with existing aviation manufacturing companies to bring their aircraft to the market.
A very special thanks to the original team, Kris P, Nathan S, Anthony V, Abraham M, Dennis T, Steve W, Joe M without these people the simulator and 3d printed model would not exist. They represent the collective effort for sustainable aviation. l
Officially established and founded by Robert Gomez, as a limited liability aviation research company in New Jersey.
Launch of our first public simulation project; “UV-4 VTOL UAV” an unmanned cargo aircraft. The project was funded by the college’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) grant. The project was first released on Microsoft Flight Simulation X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v3.
UV-4 UAV project released on X-Plane 10 software working with Thranda Inc., our first project on the advanced simulation platform.
aeroG Aviation LLC launches our flagship project, “aG-4” a manned passenger vehicle that shares design with the revised UV-4.
The UV-4 is released for Lockheed-Martin Prepar3D v4 introducing structural improvements and autopilot features.
First public release of simulation software for "aG-4 eVTOL" a passenger aircraft designed for urban air mobility.
Research begins on advanced version 2.0 of our flagship project the "aG-4 eVTOL", this software for X-Plane 11 includes enhanced VR features and fully integrated avionics suite.
Launch of "aG-4 eVTOL" for X-Plane 11 is planned. This project has brought back many old team members and continues to improve the stability of our platform.
aeroG Aviation releases version 2.0 of our aG-4 Liberty eVTOL for X-Plane 11.5. The culmination of nearly a decade of innovation in design, propulsion and determination, the aG-4 'Liberty' eVTOL stands alone in the eVTOL (Electric / Hybrid Vertical Take-off and Landing) marketplace with the aspiration of adapting a large frame tilt fan design.
aeroG Aviation becomes the newest member of C.A.A.M. The Canadian Advanced Air Mobility Consortium.
Development begins on new projects to advance eVTOL development by creating updated models for X-Plane 12 and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
aeroG Aviation featured in PCpilot Magazine article highlighting the latest work completed to aG-4 simulations.
Timeline created for MFS2020 aeroG Package, this will include both eVTOL and UAV project. This will be released in the future and will include all previous projects on the new flight simulator platform.
Redesign completed using Catia v5 software, over the last year we have been busy perfecting our design and with a completely new CG and configuration with the relocation of our ducted fans to improve ground clearance and allow for full rotation while on the ground, improving the taxi capabilities.
