With other eVTOL concepts promising greater range and speed, Alex Scerri examines whether the multicopter still has a future in urban air mobility.
Founded by former members of Airbus’ E-Fan project, Ascendance Flight Technologies is designing a hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft in France.
HeliPass, recently selected as a UAM operating partner by Choose Paris Region, talked to eVTOL.com about the company’s history and eVTOL future.
Lucas Marchesini, co-founder and CEO of Switzerland-based Manta Aircraft, spoke in-depth about the company’s ongoing development project and design philosophy.
With eVTOL aircraft moving closer to commercialization, airframers and their customers need to start thinking about performance guarantees.
The approaches of EASA and the FAA to eVTOL certification are radically different in execution, but not in objective, observes Alex Scerri.
