Revolutionizing Urban Air Mobility: AutoFlight's Mission to Create 'Taxis for the Skies’

Environmental Aviation Climate solutions

AutoFlight, a leading eVTOL aircraft manufacturer established in 2019, is on a mission to revolutionize urban air mobility. Its Generation 4 demonstrator aircraft „Prosperity 1” recently set a new world record by flying 250.3 km on a single charge, showcasing the company's commitment to engineering the best possible eVTOL aircraft for the future.

In this film, we explore the expansion of "Taxis for the Skies," a future concept in travel that offers short flights at low cost using small electric aircraft seating four people, including the pilot. AutoFlight's innovative approach to aviation is engineered in Germany and manufactured in China, with a vision to be one of the top three eVTOL OEMs. With an agile, innovation-driven, design-leading, determined, and safe approach, the company aims to connect people through short trip aviation and alleviate ground traffic congestion with limitless access to the skies using clean energy.

We had the opportunity to talk to the people who have made this revolution in travel possible. As eVTOL technology continues to evolve, AutoFlight is at the forefront of this exciting industry, and its vision of creating a more connected and sustainable world through urban air mobility is a goal worth striving for.
