The Flyox I is an unmanned aerial vehicle flying boat, twin-engine, high-wing amphibious aircraft able to land and take off from short unpaved airstrips & water.

A first prototype was built and flown by Barcelona-based Singular Aircraft in 2015, with a second prototype flying in July 2020.[1]

Four main configurations allow agricultural, firefighting, surveillance and general cargo capability, by itself or in fleet configuration, either by day and night operation.

In its aerial firefighting configuration can scoop 1,800 litres of water and drop it over forest fires.

When equipped with ferry tanks it has a range of 3,000 nmi, or can loiter for more than 30 hrs on surveillance missions.
