The integral part of the safety of the volocopter is the redundancy of its components. All safety relevant systems are present in multiple number.
Thereby the volocopter is safe to fly even if several drive units fail. Even if the range extender fails, a safe landing is ensured by additional batteries.
Our volocopters are fitted with a rescue system in the form of a parachute which safely lets the entire aircraft sink to the ground in the case of an emergency. The use of a parachute is, in contrast, not possible for helicopters and gyrocopters because the main rotor is in the way.
