The dream of futurists has always been a flying vehicle capable of efficiently moving passengers from A to B.

Opener is realizing this dream in a safe, easy-to-operate, electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle: BlackFly.

Opener's BlackFly heralds a new era of aviation. Time and money spent traveling and maintaining infrastructure will be reduced. People will go places they never thought possible.

Technology

Safety first

At Opener, we designed a new aircraft with safety as our highest priority. Fitted with triple-modular redundant flight systems, control surfaces, and sensors, our aircraft provides a new way to confidently take to the skies.
