Flightwin Innovation Technology Company, a leading developer of cargo unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) based in China, showcased a series of rotary-wing UAVs at the recent Unmanned Systems Exhibition and Conference (UMEX) 2024 in Abu Dhabi from January 23 to 25. In an interview with Janes on January 23rd, Chong Chen, Vice President of Flightwin, revealed details about the FWH-3000, emphasizing its role in fulfilling cargo and transportation needs across civil and defense sectors. The FWH-3000 is designed to transport various payloads, including medicines, weaponry, and relief materials, and can accommodate up to six patients. Chen indicated that the FWH-3000 is slated for production readiness by mid-2024.

The FWH-3000, categorized as a medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) UAV, bears a striking resemblance to the Chinook helicopter in its design. Flightwin highlights its tandem-rotor configuration and an internal cabin boasting a volume of 4.2 m³. With a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 2,500 kg and a payload capacity of 1,000 kg, the FWH-3000 can accommodate two 500 kg pallets within its internal cabin and can be equipped with an external pod if needed. Measuring 6.5 m in length, 1.4 m in width, and 2.5 m in height, the FWH-3000 boasts a maximum operating range of 600 km and a service ceiling of 6,500 m (21,300 ft). It offers an endurance of five hours and is engineered to withstand wind conditions of up to Level 7, with a maximum wind speed of 61 km/h.

In just three years, Flightwin Innovation Technology Company has achieved remarkable milestones, culminating in the development and iteration of unmanned helicopter series ranging from 200kg to 2500kg take-off weights and 50kg to 1000kg payloads. These systems have found diverse applications across various scenarios, supporting a multitude of flight missions with robust, efficient, and intelligent solutions. At UMEX 2024, Hangjing Innovation’s participation promises to offer a transformative experience to attendees from government agencies, industry partners, and media outlets both domestically and internationally.
