uTe Projections & Specifications

Since the aircraft is still currently undergoing development and testing, some of the information contained on this page is still in the form of feasible projections and probabilities, based on design-specific calculations.

Once the test-flight program is completed, all technical and performance specifications will be reviewed and, where required, revised accordingly!
