This week, Onyx hosted a demonstration of the NightHawk aircraft that took place on November 15-17, 2022, at the Leesburg Executive Airport, Virginia.
The event focused on showcasing the NightHawk capabilities for the niche special mission aviation industry leaders and technology integration partners.
“We are thrilled to have been able to host a highly successful event for our clients and industry partners, and to showcase the unique capabilities of the NightHawk aircraft that answer critical gaps in the needs of the defense and national security aviation community,” said Zach Pyle, Onyx CEO.
NightHawk is a long-endurance ISR platform with low acoustic and low thermal signatures capable of manned and unmanned operations. The aircraft’s advanced aerodynamic design, high-efficiency turbo-diesel engine, and full carbon fiber construction enables a range of up to 5000NM at cruise (140 kts) or two full days of endurance while loitering with a payload of 500 lbs and operating as a UAV. The NightHawk’s outer wing panels can be removed in less than 30 minutes for rapid deployment via a C-17.
