Fixed and rotary wing UAVs for critical missions
Alpi produces fixed and rotary wing micro and mini UAVs for intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance missions. These electric powered, man-portable, tactical aircraft come with very small integrated logistic support requirements and offer state-of-the-art performance. Alpi’s UAVs are designed in accordance with and certified by Nato STANAG military requirements.
With a take-off weight of below 10kg, a range of up to 40km, and an endurance of four hours, Alpi’s Micro and Mini UAVs are an ideal choice for tactical missions. The aircraft also feature an auto take-off by bungee launcher, auto-landing (belly and / or parachute), and a live HD video streaming facility.
Specialist engineering department for UAV development
Alpi Aviation has a specialist Alpi Aviation Research Division (AARD) engineering department, which develops micro and mini UAVs with Italian Military Certification. All Alpi operations also conform to ISO 9001:2015 international standards.
The AARD is equipped with various proprietary multi-sensor gimbals, including electro-optical (EO) of up to 30x optical zoom and infrared (IR) of up to 6x digital zoom. Also available on request are proprietary image stabilisation software and hardware, as well as multi-target acquisition and tracking features.

Innovative aircraft designs for easy manoeuvrability
Alpi’s Pioneer Two-Seat Plane series features a new wooden / fibre low-wing construction, which allows the aircraft to maximise its performance potential. The entry-level Pioneer 200 class is highly appreciated in flight training schools due to its easy manoeuvrability and low maintenance cost.
The Pioneer 300 class is particularly popular with sport pilots because of its stability in low and high speeds. Also available is the Pioneer 330 Acro, a semi-aerobatic aircraft supplied as a kit for amateur construction.
The Pioneer 400 Four-Seat Airplane offers an excellent standard of performance while ensuring minimal fuel consumption and keeping maintenance costs low. This model is experiencing great success in several countries due to its reliable construction and comfortable flight experience. All Pioneer models can be customised with options such as VFR-IFR panels and glass-cockpits, turbocharged and fuel injected engines, as well as parachute safety systems.
Durable gas turbine helicopters for flight schools
Alpi’s SYTON AH-130 is a two seater gas-turbine helicopter that has been in production since 2008. This model is built with a steel frame and features a carbon fibre closed cabin.
It is popular with flight schools due to its impressive stability and ability to reach altitudes that piston engine helicopters cannot. The SYTON AH-130 has a three-hour flight capability and can operate with a payload of up to 300kg.
