Volocopter opens reservations for first electric air taxi flights

The “VoloCity” electric air taxi recently completed successful demonstration flights in Stuttgart, Germany, at Helsinki, Finland’s international airport and over Marina Bay in Singapore. Company officials decided to launch ticket sales based on those flights, said Volocopter’s Chief Commercial Officer Christian Bauer. The company’s final certification for air taxis is still pending. In the meantime, one of Volocopter’s objectives is to “gain market traction,” though how the company is measuring that pre-launch isn’t entirely clear. If you’re in Germany and want to see what Volocopter’s vehicle looks like before reserving a ticket, a VoloCity model is currently on display at Berlin’s Greentech Festival.
