We believe aircraft
should fly themselves.

We believe aircraft should fly themselves.

Advanced automation will make aircraft safer, more available, more affordable and fundamentally transformative to the way goods and people move around the planet.

Starting with a certification-forward approach, Reliable Robotics first demonstrated gate-to-gate fully automated operation of a Part 23 aircraft and is now working towards commercialization of technologies for Part 23 cargo and Part 25 passenger vehicles.
