The VoloCity air taxi will bypass urban streets to fly whisper-quiet and emission-free in the lower airspace. It is poised to transport passengers between key transportation hubs like train stations and airports. This will enable seamless, faster, and more convenient options than those afforded by existing transit options. The VoloCity is more than our first launch product – it’s a veritable game changer. With its clean design and advanced architecture, and the way it integrates technologies, it will go some way toward making big city life more convenient and more sustainable.
2 seats, 18 rotors, and endless possibilities: The VoloCity air taxi is an all-electric aircraft with the ability to vertically take off and land. Back in 2011, Volocopter was the first to build and fly an initial prototype of this brand-new aircraft type. Developed to meet the exacting aviation standards and requirements set by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the innovative VoloCity design has already earned DOA, and we are now working towards type certification (TC). The VoloCity air taxi has been put to test in over 1,500 test flights already, in multiple prototype iterations. Initial flights will be piloted (1 pilot plus 1 passenger), eventually paving the way toward a fully autonomous service in the future.
