Meet the Volocity


Introduced in final August, the VoloCity is the newest remedy proposed by Volocopter, the initial developed for true business use. All of its features (variety of seats, array, velocity…) are similar to its mission: to be an interior-metropolis traveling taxi and practically nothing else.

The option of simplicity, for instance (these kinds of as immediate-drive motors and fixed pitch rotors) would make the solution considerably less expensive to manufacture, additional responsible (less pricey maintenance and much easier to certify), lighter, so more inexpensive and considerably less noisy. Anything is closely joined.

The vast span and a large quantity of battery-run engines and rotors (18 of every) cut down the sounds degree and create a frequency that is softer and extra nice on the ear. It also increases basic safety: the VoloCity is capable of flying even if numerous engines are inoperative. The aircraft will fly at “only” 110kmph, which is safer (better collision avoidance) and significantly less noisy than rapid eVTOLs.

1 passenger and the pilot have obtain and are seated easily (Volocopter’s analyses display that the substantial bulk of intra-urban travellers journey by itself). There is place for hand luggages, air conditioning, silence and a beautiful view. Once the laws will authorise it, the VoloCity will also be capable to fly autonomously.

The VoloCity embarks 9 Lithium-ion exchangeable battery packs. These are recharged on the vertiports. Every time the aircraft lands in among two flights, batteries can be changed in five minutes to fresh new batteries and can choose off. Its 35km array helps make it feasible to connect the most preferred destinations (metropolis centres, airports, company centres …).

Vertical acquire-off and landing, so no have to have for wheels nor retractable landing equipment. The skids are component of the rationalisation system to lower bodyweight, breakdowns, manufacturing and upkeep prices. Floor operations are ensured by conveyor belts or platforms.
