Aerofugia’s AE200 tilt-rotor eVTOL “makes first public demonstration flight”

Shanghai Metals Market (SMM) reports that Aerofugia, a subsidiary of electric car manufacturer Geely, “has successfully conducted a public demonstration flight of its AE200 electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

“This marked the conclusion of the second phase of test flights, showcasing the aircraft’s full tilt-rotor transition capabilities and further verifying its control quality,” said the news source. “During the demonstration, AEROFUGIA’s R&D team adhered strictly to standard flight test control procedures. The AE200 performed a complete tilt transition flight test, smoothly transitioning its rotors from 90° to 0° and back, achieving a safe takeoff and landing.

“The AE200, a self-developed strategic product by AEROFUGIA, is a 5-6-seat tilt-rotor eVTOL with a range of 200 kilometers. It is designed for high-density passenger transport in urban areas, air tourism, and emergency rescue missions.

“In early June, the AE200 successfully completed its first full tilt transition flight test, making AEROFUGIA the first company in China and the second globally to achieve this milestone. Since then, the R&D team has conducted a series of system-specific test flights, gradually expanding the operational boundaries and testing scenarios of the aircraft.”

Recently, the company supported the city of Chengdu in completing the first urban low-altitude manned verification flight, establishing the operational processes for low-altitude travel routes in the city, said SMM.
