At FLYING WHALES, our aim is to shake up the aeronautics and transport markets. Nothing less! We are a group of passionate people who believe that status quos are made to be exceeded. To do this, we are designing a unique aircraft which minimizes ground infrastructures and reduces economic and environmental costs. Our airship, the LCA60T, will carry and transport heavy loads from point to point, loading them on hover flight. The application field for our solution covers a wide range, starting with the logging industry. Our airship, equipped with state-of-the-art engineering and advanced technologies, will propose disruptive and game-changing solutions to overcome logistics problems in land-locked areas. To develop, manufacture and sell this major aeronautic innovation, we welcome the best talents, regardless of their age. Our project is on track; if you are an open-minded and rigorous pioneer ready to innovate, if you are one of those people who believe that a cohesive and passionate group can give life to a ground-breaking project, come and rise to the challenge with us!
