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.
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.
Revisions to the “UV-4” are complete, the new aircraft includes larger fuselage, cargo door, ducts, and propellers. Released on Prepar3D v3.2 and later on X-Plane 11.
aeroG Aviation LLC launches our flagship project, “aG-4” a manned passenger vehicle that shares design with the revised UV-4.
Patent Services Inc, is hired to obtain aeronautical and engineering patients for “aG-4.”
The UV-4 is released for Lockheed-Martin Prepar3D v4 introducing structural improvements and autopilot features.
Joseph Erik Mattern Appointed Chief Executive Officer
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.
Redesign of ducted fans and propellers begin. This update increases the safety and redundancy of the aG-4 and makes the project much more feasible.
