EVTOL Aircraft

Clean, congestion-free air travel gets liftoff

Overview

An eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) aircraft is a type of aircraft that can take off and land vertically, like a conventional helicopter, and uses electric power to hover, take off, and land. eVTOLs support the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) concept, which refers to a safe and efficient aviation transportation system that uses automated aircraft to transport passengers or cargo at lower altitudes within urban and suburban areas. Besides eVTOLs, UAM includes other technologies such as eCTOL (electric conventional take-off and landing) and eSTOL (electric short take-off and landing) aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) commonly known as drones.

However, the scope of this hub is limited to eVTOLs designed for passenger transport. Such eVTOLs have several use cases: they can be used as air taxis and personal air vehicles (PAVs), to provide emergency medical assistance, and for tourism and recreation. They can also be used for defense and security purposes by the military sector.

*Note: Currently, we do not actively cover this industry, but we have identified it as a potential industry to add to our coverage.
