Meet the ME-1A
The ME-1A utilizes exceptionally efficient aerodynamic design principles and a lightweight composite structure to enhance a safe simple proven platform that enables runway independent transportation.
Single Pilot Design
The integrated flight deck and the single-lever integrated digital engine will allow the ME-1A to be certified for operation by a single pilot.
The ME-1A amphibious aircraft saves time and increases connectivity to areas lacking infrastructure.
Turboprops such as the amphibious ME-1A seaplane are regional airlines’ preferred choice worldwide for travel distances up to 330 nm.
The time saved by using a ME-1A on a 330 nm flight from Erie, PA to NYC’s Manhattan seaplane base is illustrated here:
Any mission, any location, with the best-in-class, speed, range, & payload
Designed to be Sustainable
As the movement to decarbonize aviation grows, Mallard Enterprises plans to make it a pivotal point of our product and organizational development using a 3-phase approach:
Renewable Energy Facilities
Our facility at Brunswick Landing is an EPA Green Power Partner, powered by 100% renewable energy.
Sustainable Aviation Fuel and components
The aircraft engines, that will power the ME-1A have been certified to use sustainable aviation fuel which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%. The planned all composite five blade reversible propellers will be 10% quieter.
Renewable Propulsion Systems
The ME-1A is being designed to have long-term propulsion flexibility so that as renewable propulsion systems mature, the regulatory framework to certify them is adopted and the infrastructure to support them is in place, our platform will be capable of transitioning to the systems that best fit operators' individual mission needs and sustainability goals.
