Observing a test flight of a eVTOL in Singapore


On October 22, 2019 (local time), a prototype of the Volocopter, an electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft from Germany-based Volocopter, was demonstrated at the 26th ITS World Congress, an event on transportation systems held in Singapore from October 21st to October 25th , 2019.
Under cloudy skies, the aircraft with a pilot on board successfully took off vertically and flew for about 140 seconds, covering a distance of 1.5 km, before landing.
This time, the aircraft was piloted by a pilot, but in the future, it is expected to be flown automatically, and will be commercialized in two to four years.
