AeroMobil raises funding from UK-based private investor

London based investor and advisor Omid Vaziri agrees a private investment into AeroMobil.

AeroMobil, one of the leading start-ups developing flying cars and personal aerial transportation received private investment from Omid Vaziri, a UK based investment banker and advisor.

On his investment Omid Vaziri said "Having closely followed AeroMobil’s evolution as part of the personal aerial vehicle market over the years, I’m most impressed with the team’s technological achievements but also organisational setup to develop what I believe is a truly unique offering - which is why I've decided to personally invest.” 

He continues “AeroMobil has now strategically placed itself at the forefront of door-to-door personal aerial transportation. Through its pragmatic approach and backed by impressive technology, AeroMobil has developed a vehicle that can both drive and fly within existing regulation and infrastructure. As such AeroMobil is in the unique position that it does not depend on the development of a new regulatory framework in order to gain immediate market access, making it an attractive investment opportunity in an exciting new market."

Omid Vaziri is an investment professional based in London with more than 15 years’ experience in equity capital markets and investment banking. He is a graduate of the London School of Economics and NYU Stern School of Business.

To date AeroMobil has successfully raised over €24 million from a range of investors:

  • Slovak Investment Holding (SIH), a joint stock company 100% owned by the Slovak Guarantee and Development Bank. SIH's main objective is to support public and private investments in strategic sectors in Slovakia.
  • Patrick Hessel, Chairman of AeroMobil and founder and CEO of C2i, a leading producer of carbon-fibre components for automotive, aerospace and motorsport 
  • IPM Group, asset manager and multi-family office investing in disruptive technologies in the sectors of energy, mobility and artificial intelligence

  • Initial seed capital over the first 5 years was provided by serial entrepreneur and start-up investor, Juraj Vaculik, Co-founder and CEO of AeroMobil
  • AeroMobil has also been actively supported by the Slovak government and its development and growth agencies.

Earlier this year AeroMobil appointed Rothschild & Co and as sole financial advisor to close its latest funding round.AeroMobil has already held discussions with a number of leading strategic investors from automotive and aerospace, as well as a number of family offices and VC funds.  To date, AeroMobil has showcased short take-off and landing (STOL) and electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles, both with unique FlyDrive capabilities. It is also one of the first flying car companies to submit an application to European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for a Type Certificate for its upcoming AeroMobil 4.0 STOL flying vehicle.

The AeroMobil 4.0 is available to pre-order via the AeroMobil website at www.aeromobil.com/deposit or by direct contact with an AeroMobil representative.

About AeroMobil

AeroMobil is a leader in mobility in three dimensions with a vision to liberate personal mobility from the ground and into the skies. AeroMobil develops the most flexible, capable and efficient range of personal aerial vehicles (PAVs) designed for door to door travel in intra and inter-urban environments, reducing congestion and emissions while increasing proximity and convenience for citizens, cities and society. 

AeroMobil is pioneering the development and commercialisation of flying cars, developing cutting edge technology to produce a range of vehicles for short take-off and landing (STOL) and vertical take-off and landing (VTOL). This includes electric propulsion systems, battery technology and control systems for piloted and autonomous flight for transportation on the ground and in the air to support short and longe range personal air travel with eVTOLs. 

AeroMobil adopts an iterative approach to the development of personal air transportation in line with technology readiness, legislation and market acceptance. We believe the future offers unbounded opportunity for air mobility at scale but requires a pragmatic and considered approach to ensure technology and solutions implemented are safe, reliable and effective through partnership and collaboration with regulators, governments and cities to realise the benefits of all. 

The first flying car from AeroMobil provides increased flexibility and versatility for the customer as it combines the best of automotive and aerospace technology into one vehicle while respecting the limits of current technology and the regulatory environment. It is the first step in our journey towards air Mobility-as-a-service (aMaaS) which will make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel over short and medium distances, and in areas with limited road or public transport infrastructure.
