Anavia is a specialist developer and manufacturer of advanced VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).
Drawing on decades of experience in the aerospace and motorsport sectors, we aim to set a new standard for unmanned flight, providing complete UAV solutions with a focus on safety, performance, ease of operation and modularity.
HT-100 Long-Range Unmanned Helicopter
Endurance UAV for transport & logistics, reconnaissance, search & rescue
The HT-100 is a high-performance long-range VTOL unmanned helicopter constructed using lightweight carbon fibre and with an innovative double rotor Flettner system.
Up to 240 mins
Ready to Fly
These unique features combine to deliver a responsive, versatile and stable UAV, capable of exceptional flight times of up to 240 minutes and the ability to carry up to 65 kilos of payload.

The high payload capacity and long flight time, make the HT-100 unmanned helicopter an ideal choice for tactical reconnaissance missions, search & rescue operations, and long-range cargo, transport and logistics deliveries.
Rapid deployment and intuitive operation
The complete unmanned aerial system includes a user-friendly ground control station (GCS) with intuitive software, allowing pilots to quickly get to grips with aircraft operation and get airborne as safely and rapidly as possible – in as little as 15 minutes.
Uncompromising safety-first design
The HT-100 unmanned helicopter has been designed with safety foremost in mind and features redundant actuators as well as an electric backup motor. The aircraft is programmed to enter an autorotation mode when the RPM drops below a certain level, allowing for controlled descent and landing in the event of any technical issues.
The aircraft also features a FLARM collision avoidance transponder, providing enhanced airspace visibility and minimising the risk of collision with other aircraft. The arrangement of lights on the aircraft’s body allows it to be visible at significant distances.
With integrated proven low-vibration technology, the aircraft is capable of long service life. All maintenance cycles up to 1,000 hours can be completed at the customer’s location, while maintenance cycles up to 500 hours can be completed by the customer themselves. Monitoring sensors within the UAV report problems proactively and prevent follow-up costs.

Mapping & Surveying
The versatile HT-100 can be equipped with a wide range of payloads for mapping and surveying, including LiDAR scanners, visible and thermal cameras, and multispectral sensors.
Featuring exceptional flight duration, the HT-100 is an ideal platform for tactical, surveillance and security applications, with the ability to patrol large areas and provide critical real-time situational awareness.
The HT-100 is built to withstand the rigours and harsh weather of marine and maritime environments, and is ideal for missions such as naval reconnaissance and shore-to-ship delivery.
Logistics and Cargo Delivery
With a substantial payload capacity as well as long-range operation, the HT-100 UAV can transport a wide range of cargo, in all weather conditions at any time of day or night.
Search & Rescue
The HT-100 can operate in any terrain under weather conditions that pose issues even for manned helicopters, making it indispensable for time-critical emergencies such as finding missing persons or post-disaster management.
The ability to carry heavy payloads and a wide range of sensors make the HT-100 ideal for large-scale agricultural operations, allowing farmers to enhance productivity, gain critical insights and increase yields.
