UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is seeking proposals to develop a total system safety case as part of its Future Flight Challenge.
We spoke with NASA’s Justin Littell and the FAA’s Joseph Pellettiere about some of the key concepts related to eVTOL crash safety.
A robust safety culture will be critical to the eVTOL industry’s success, argues former FAA Administrator Michael Huerta, now with Kitty Hawk.
A Boeing CV2 Cargo Air Vehicle was substantially damaged last year when it made a contingency landing in crosswinds that were higher than expected.
Just two weeks after Kitty Hawk unveiled its Heaviside eVTOL last year, a prototype crashed after a software timing error affected the aircraft’s controllability.
Lilium has confirmed that its first full-scale Lilium Jet prototype was substantially damaged by a fire that broke out during ground maintenance activities.
