AeroMobil UK premiere at Goodwood Festival of Speed
AeroMobil attends Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019 for the first time as a part of Future Lab pavilion
Thursday, July 4, 2019 — AeroMobil, one of the leading start-ups developing flying cars and personal aerial transportation technology platforms will exhibit the AeroMobil 4.0 vehicle in the FUTURE LAB pavilion at world renowned Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019 from the 4th to the 7thJuly. This represents another significant milestone in the history of AeroMobil and provides further opportunity to showcase our innovative technology and modular-platform approach to personal air mobility.
”The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an incredible event, celebrated across the globe for its unique approach to showcasing the best of motorsport and automotive technology past, present and future. At AeroMobil we are honoured to have been invited by the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, and his organising team, to participate in the Future Lab. Our presence will allow AeroMobil to present the vehicle to customers and meet with interested investors and technology partners who want to experience the vehicle and hear about our approach to develop it as a platform for future mobility with a range of technologies for personal aerial vehicles including VTOL models.“ – says Patrick Hessel, Chairman of AeroMobil
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 and developed using AeroMobil’s modular platform and suite of technologies. It is also one of the first flying car companies to submit an application to the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for a Type Certificate for its AeroMobil 4.0 STOL flying vehicle. The AeroMobil team is building the first experimental prototype which will be flight tested this year as a part of its development programme.
AeroMobil has a clear vision to become a leading global player in the development and deployment of personal aerial vehicles for inter-city and intra-urban air mobility. This is what it calls 3D Mobility, envisaging a world where travellers have a seamless, transition from road to air so they can travel in comfort while dramatically reducing journey times and the environmental impact. AeroMobil has developed a unique suite of proprietary eVTOL capabilities, technologies and systems as part of its modular platform. Given its extensive experience to date, AeroMobil is strongly positioned to identify new opportunities across the value chain, including the operational delivery of air taxi services, to enable the business to fulfil its ambition to become the first certified commercially available flying car in history.
Since it first began work on its prototype in 2013 AeroMobil has adopted an iterative approach to the introduction of flying car technologies for urban air mobility. The strategic focus is to build a sustainable business that capitalises on the market opportunity for flying cars while respecting technology readiness, the regulatory environment, current infrastructure and the commercial landscape. The AeroMobil 4.0 STOL provides the business with a strong first-mover advantage. Positioned as a ‘super-car with super-power’ the 4.0 enables AeroMobil to gather invaluable data to improve learning about the customer, vehicle and operation while addressing an existing market for super-cars and light aircraft. AeroMobil believes this is necessary to support the introduction of flying cars since eVTOL still requires significant development in technology, infrastructure and regulatory environments in order to be commercially viable and successful.
