With companies like Boeing and Airbus investing heavily in the technology, and cities around the world looking for new solutions to reduce congestion and air pollution, the potential for Evtols to revolutionize transportation is clear. But what can we expect from the Evtol market in the coming years ?
Electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, commonly known as flying cars, have the potential to revolutionize the way we travel. These aircraft offer an efficient and sustainable mode of transportation that could greatly reduce traffic congestion on the ground. However, before eVTOLs can become a reality, there are significant challenges that must be addressed, particularly in the area of air traffic control and air navigation services.
Ryse Aero Technologies, a US company, introduced a large drone at CES in Las Vegas that can lift off vertically, fly and land vertically and is powered by electricity. The drone, called Recon, is intended to be easy to operate and available to individuals with any level of flying experience or certification.
Electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles, or Evtols, have garnered significant attention in recent years as a potential solution to the problems of urban transportation. These aircraft are designed to take off and land vertically, like helicopters, but are powered by electric batteries rather than fossil fuels. They have the potential to revolutionize the way we travel in and between cities, offering a fast and efficient alternative to cars, buses, and trains.
Volocopter’s evtol made its first live flight near Paris in November, and it is hoped that it will be able to carry passengers commercially over shorter distances in 2024, the year of the Paris Olympics.
Beta Technologies is reportedly the first company to have conducted a drop test to evaluate the safety of flying with electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and to assess the performance of the battery in the event of a crash.
