VoloCity – music for the ears

The VoloCity will become the first commercially licensed Volocopter, developed according to the high standards and requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Our intensive testing programme has informed the innovative design and the outstanding overall performance of the VoloCity. Quiet, safe, and comfortable, the Volocity engenders Urban Air Mobility.

Our Aircrafts

Extremely safe

Volocopter features multiple redundancy systems, ensuring a virtually failsafe aircraft. The redundant systems includes the rotors, electro motors, batteries, avionics, and display. Furthermore all communication networks are connected through fibre optic cable – “fly by light“ so to say.

Especially quiet

When you experience a Volocopter for the first time, you will be astounded by how quiet it is. Because all 18 rotors acoustically operate within a narrow frequency band they sound to the human ear to be only twice as loud as one single rotor. For comparison: A Volocopter 2X within 75 meters distance is as quiet as the smallest helicopter within 500 meters distance.

Eight years flight experience

Volocopters have been flying since 2011. The experience of more than 1000 test flights makes the Volocopter what it is today: one of the most mature and safe air taxis worldwide, that has received permits to fly in manned or unmanned configurations for pioneering test flights in Germany, Dubai, Helsinki, and Singapore.

easy

Simply simple

Flying has never been so easy. The reason: state-of-the art assistance systems and more than 100 micro processors ensure perfect stability and control of the Volocopter. Altitude control, balance, and landing can be intuitively managed by control stick. Even when the pilot lets go of it, the Volocopter automatically holds its position.

Versatile

The Volocopter sets new benchmarks not only in terms of reliability and simplicity, but also in terms of cost effectiveness. Fuel is replaced by economical (and increasingly sustainably generated) electricity. On top of this, requirements for maintenance, repair, and overhaul are reduced to a minimum through the avoidance of complex mechanical components.

THE FASCINATION OF ELECTRIC

Nine rechargable batteries power 18 motors. The Volocopter battery swapping system allows for careful charging. Volocopter air taxis can be supplied with a newly maintained and charged battery shortly after landing and are ready to take off in a matter of minutes.
