VoloCity – music for the ears

The VoloCity will become the first commercially licensed Volocopter, developed according to the high standards and requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Our intensive testing programme has shaped the innovative design and outstanding overall performance of the VoloCity. Quiet, safe, and comfortable, the VoloCity engenders Urban Air Mobility.

Our Aircrafts

Extremely safe

Volocopter features multiple redundancy systems, ensuring a virtually failsafe aircraft. The redundant systems include rotors, electric motors, batteries, avionics and display. All communication networks are connected by fibre optic cable – 'fly by light' so to say.

Extremely quiet

When you experience a Volocopter for the first time, you'll be astounded by how quiet it is. Because all 18 rotors acoustically operate within a narrow frequency range, to the human ear they sound only twice as loud as one single rotor. For comparison: A Volocopter 2X within a 75-metre distance is as quiet as the smallest helicopter within 500 metres distance.

Eight years flight experience

Volocopters have been flying since 2011. The experience of more than 1,000 test flights makes the Volocopter what it is today: one of the most advanced and safe air taxis worldwide. Volocopter has already received permits to fly in manned or unmanned configurations for pioneering test flights in Germany, Dubai, Helsinki, and Singapore.

easy

Simply simple

Flying has never been this easy. This is because state-of-the art assistance systems and more than 100 microprocessors ensure perfect stability and control of the Volocopter. Altitude control, balance, and landing can be intuitively managed by control stick. Even when the pilot lets go of it, the Volocopter automatically holds its position.

Versatile

The Volocopter sets new benchmarks not only in terms of reliability and simplicity, but also in terms of cost effectiveness. Fuel is replaced by economical (and increasingly eco-sustainable) electricity. The absence of complex mechanical components means that requirements for maintenance, repair, and overhaul are reduced to a minimum.

THE FASCINATION OF ELECTRIC

Nine rechargeable batteries power 18 motors. The Volocopter battery swapping system enables careful charging. Volocopter air taxis can be supplied with a newly maintained and charged battery shortly after landing and are ready for take-off again in a matter of minutes.
