Unlock The Skies

At AutoFlight, we are determined to unlock the skies for mass individual transport in the air.
To achieve this goal, we have designed a shared airborne vehicle – you can think of it as an air taxi.

Our air taxi is designed to be

   

Safer & Safer

Clean & Quiet

Affordable & Available

Comfortable & Pleasant

LIFT & CRUISE CONFIGURATION

To fulfill and deliver this vision, we worked hard over the years and settled on a configuration and business model we believe is best suited for the above requirements. The basis of our design is a so-called “Lift and Cruise” configuration.

THE COMBINATION OF RANGE AND SAFETY

This configuration combines superior range and safety with the advantages of low complexity and thus high affordability and certifiability to the highest standards of aviation safety.

HIGH RELIABILITY &
ALL-WEATHER CAPABLE

We believe that to be useful, the service needs to have a high degree of reliability. To ensure this reliability, our vehicle is designed to be all-weather capable to the highest safety standards. That includes visibility and weather conditions (key words IFR & “known icing”).
Availability means availability for all – that includes the young and elderly as well as handicapped people.

Global collaboration and certification

One more aspect of availability is the global nature of our endeavor. We strive and aspire to peaceful and respectful collaboration between the Americas, Europe, Africa Asia and Oceania.

In terms of safety, we collaborate with all three large safety agencies: Europe’s EASA, America’s FAA and China’s CAAC. While we work together with all three bodies, the basis is EASA, which is accepted by the Americas and China.

VERTICAL INTEGRATION FOR KEY COMPONENTS

There is no supply chain for VTOL aircraft. The existing airborne vehicle supply chain is designed for very low numbers (hundred pieces per year) and thus not suitable for the requirements of the new airborne future (tens of thousands of vehicles per year).

WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON NEXT-GEN MOBILITY FOR DECADES

We are a group of engineers and entrepreneurs who have been working on next-generation mobility and airborne machines for several decades.Our expertise in operating safe and performant airborne vehicles is derived from the operation of large-scale cargo versions of our aircraft (hundreds of hours flown and thousands of transitions completed). That gives us the necessary engineering know-how, manufacturing expertise and operations experience resulting in a fine-tuned design for a safe, performant and affordable vehicle.

Unlocking and preserving nature

We have social responsibility ingrained in our DNA. For this reason, we have decided not to supply defense clients at this moment. While we respect the need for safety and national security, we believe that this can be achieved through cultural, commercial and diplomatic means and therefore prefer to invest in these areas. We choose civilian mobility... We believe in education and equal opportunity and so opt to actively engage part of our resources to foster education across the globe.
