Taxis flying over cities will be at least ten years away, but the market for electric-powered aircraft is already booming. ORCA Aerospace has also entered this segment, working with tech company AerinX to develop an eVTOL aircraft that would make air ambulance services more efficient and faster. The US is setting the trend in the industry, as overseas, unlike China, it has not only the capital but also the right regulatory environment.
The electric vehicle, which can take off from the ground, will be developed by Orca and the maintenance processes will be improved in cooperation with AerinX. The Hungarian startup Orca, which has come closer to realising its machine, which only exists on the drawing board so far, by signing a cooperation agreement with AerinX, another Hungarian company focusing on the technological renewal of the aviation industry’s operation and maintenance processes, would revolutionise air rescue. Under this agreement, the two companies plan to jointly investigate and develop high-tech maintenance processes for air taxis.
