In an interview with Business Insider’s Avivah Lerman, blade helicopter expert Will Heyburn share a bit of history about his company’s new product, the Black Knight. The name says it all: these brilliant little machines are made of carbon nano-tube technology and are extremely powerful and maneuverable. The incredible blade system is comprised of ten blade rotators that allow the machine to rotate at incredible speeds, making it ideal for surveillance and remote control operations. They are being used in the United States Military, but Heyburn is hoping they will see a lot more use outside of the military because the devices are so easy and affordable to maintain and operate. There is a limited amount of production of these machines due to their small size, but when they are released it will be a hot item and fly off store shelves as hot as anything else on the market today.

When the government ordered the construction of these machines back in 2021, the first company that decided to bid on the contract was Mumbai in India. However, Heyburn states that with the recent economic downturn in India and a poor economy in many countries worldwide, Mumbai’s mavericks weren’t able to compete with the higher priced UAVs from countries like China and Japan. Now that India has started building its own fleet of blade helicopters for commercial purposes, Heyburn is confident that Mumbai will once again be a front-runner in the manufacturing industry.
When looking at this brand of helicopters, one can’t help but wonder if it would fly in the same manner as other helicopters have done before now. The answer to that question is no, not at all. Blade helicopters, due to their incredible feat of flight dynamics and design, are completely unique and require new and innovative technology training for operators. Will Heyburn and his team of engineers are hoping that by creating new and innovative training methods, they can help make sure that when new blade helicopters fly into local areas, there will be absolutely nothing that can compare to them. This could ultimately lead to an increased level of safety and security for those living in areas that aren’t familiar with the technology that is used in these new and unique helicopters.
