Pivotal’s groundbreaking Helix eVTOL stands as a paradigm shift in personal air travel, offering an unprecedented level of accessibility and user-friendliness. This revolutionary single-person aircraft, classified as an ultralight aircraft under FAA regulations, eliminates the need for a pilot’s license, opening up the skies to a wider range of individuals.

Harnessing Simplicity and Versatility

The Helix eVTOL’s compact size and detachable design make it exceptionally portable and convenient. Weighing a mere 158 kilograms (158 pounds) without passengers or cargo, the Helix can be easily transported and stored, while its modular construction allows for quick disassembly, eliminating the need for specialized equipment during transportation and storage.

Augmenting Control and Navigation with Technology

Pivotal has meticulously integrated a dedicated mobile app with the Helix eVTOL, providing owners with comprehensive control and navigation capabilities. This user-friendly app enables real-time vehicle status monitoring, flight updates, and intuitive joystick-based control, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable flying experience.

Placing Safety at the Forefront

Despite the Helix eVTOL’s ease of operation, Pivotal recognizes the paramount importance of safety and has implemented mandatory training for all customers. This comprehensive training program equips new owners with the knowledge and skills necessary to operate the eVTOL safely and responsibly, prioritizing the well-being of both pilots and bystanders.

Initial Launch and Market Outlook

Currently available for purchase in the United States, the Helix eVTOL holds the potential to revolutionize personal air travel, potentially reaching a wider audience in the future. While initially targeted towards the affluent, its advanced technology and unique capabilities have the potential to democratize aerial mobility and make it more accessible to the general public.
