Volocopter has unveiled VoloCity, an on-demand air taxi for cities which it claims has a calculated range of 35km and airspeed of 110 km/h.
Florian Reuter, CEO of Volocopter, says the air taxi is a “result of all the insights we have gathered from our extensive testing programmes over the past years. With the VoloCity we will open the first commercial routes and bring urban air mobility to life.”
The company says the air taxi features aerodynamically shaped rotor beams and a stabiliser to increase safety during flight. It will be able to carry two people and hand luggage.
Volocopter is now focusing on developing the physical take-off and landing infrastructure for air taxis and integrating into air traffic management systems of interested cities.
