The status of development

8

Winfried Kretschmann, Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg visited e-volo and was informed about the status of development.

Together with a network of notable partners from the fields of research and industry, e-volo will press ahead with the development of the technology for the volocopter during the next years.

The aim of the collaboration is a two-seater volocopter which complies with regulations, and is based on the concept study of the VC Evolution 2P with the following aircraft performance:

• a speed of over 54 kn (100 km/h)

• a minimum flight altitude of 6500 ft

• a take-off weight of 450 kg

• more than one hour flight time

    great idea for urban areas to get away from traffic. Go with skids til you have your rortor system figured out if that is what you call it? Good Luck

    any chance this might also come out as a kit also?
    any idea of price range for the two seater?
    this would be perfect for going the 10 miles from my rural home to my small town for groceries! BIG PLUS: My wife loves it!!!!!!!
