eVTOL.com is a new online publication from MHM Publishing, publishers of Vertical and Skies magazines. Since our founding in 2002, we’ve provided award-winning coverage of conventional vertical take-off and landing aircraft, with Vertical now the largest and most trusted helicopter magazine in the world. Now, with the emergence of a new class of electric and hybrid electric VTOL aircraft, we’ve created eVTOL.com to provide focused, in-depth coverage of this emerging industry. Our editorial team brings decades of experience in writing about aviation and technology.
Want to join us? We’re actively seeking industry experts to provide comment and analysis, as well as talented freelance contributors who are interested in covering this emerging space. Please email [email protected] to learn more.
