DRAGONFLY X is a deep tech startup, a pioneer devoted to paving the way for hydrogen in aviation and air taxis.
Redefining the Way We Move
We make the vision of hydrogen fuel cell aviation a reality at DragonflyX. Our planes provide the most cost-effective ways to carry products and people to their destinations — emissions-free and more affordable than ever before.
A completely new vision for megacities with a smart ecosystem we construct to complement our air taxis. We free up space and remove congestion in our streets by offering hydrogen fuel cell flights. We contribute to the acceleration of urban activities by linking several vital intermodal transportations.
Our Journey to the Future
DRAGONFLY X IS FOUNDED
Seaplane Hong Kong spin-off to create DRAGONFLYX. In contrast to our competitors, founder Steven believes Urban Air Mobility should be based on hydrogen rather than bulky and heavy lithium-ion batteries, focusing on affordable and accessibility to the mass market.
DRAGONFLY X Launch
VIPs include celebrities, management and leadership from property developers, family offices, representatives from the various conglomerates, engineering, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, airlines and travel industry, government officials and diplomats.
Core Patents and Technology Transfer
DRAGONFLYX won the IPHatch competition, securing core patents and technology transfer from multinational corporations Panasonic and Nokia. Potential commercial use & commercialization of technologies covering sectors including aviation, aircraft manufacturing, fleet car, drone and urban air mobility.
GROUNDBREAKING SENSOR TECHNOLOGY

DRAGONFLYX KEY GROWTH DRIVER
Greater Bay Area
First in the market with Hydrogen eVTOL with longer range, heaviest load, operating within the Greater Bay Area - The Largest eVTOL market in the world, with a catchment area of over 86 million people.
High capacity, high-frequency network
Initial plans include intermodal transportation, feeder service to airlines, high-speed rail, and operating an air metro service with air taxis beginning shortly after.
IOT & BIG DATA
Flexible aircraft deployment finding the most optimal route to maintain higher operating efficiency with predictive maintenance and real-time sensors, resulting in a higher margin.
With sensors and cameras, our aircraft will collect a wealth of information from their surroundings. This information is utilised to improve and expand their autonomous system, the data will also be a value-added service to various stakeholders. Converts this stream of data into a new revenue stream that encourages partner engagement or allows our partners to gain more value out of their services.
LOW COST & DIGITIZATION
Projected to achieve $0.6 US cents per mile, the lowest operating cost compared to other eVTOL competitors. Logistics are cheaper than a delivery truck.
Developing and operating Vertiports in core cities, partnering with the regulator to digit and fully automate airspace management.
