Consumer eVTOL manufacturer AIR has announced its partnership with The International SeaKeepers Society, an educational organization for members of the yachting community. “The partnership will ensure AIR’s eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) models are available for use as auxiliary equipment to extend yachters’ reach and access points beyond yacht capabilities,” according to a press statement.
The statement continues:
“As an official AIR Brand Ambassador, SeaKeepers will play a significant role in expanding and enabling AIR’s vision – the mass adoption of personal air vehicles – by focusing on the unique market of the yachting community. Incorporating the AIR ONE on yachting expeditions simplifies near-shore commutes on and off the yacht by eliminating the need to carry aviation fuel and a variety of spare parts, removing the obstacle of requiring a professional pilot, and allowing for charging using onboard generators.
“AIR’s inaugural vehicle, AIR ONE, allows individual consumers to embrace the freedom of flight in their daily travels. The vehicle is a sporty, all-electric two-seater eVTOL offering a practical range on a single charge at speeds up to 155 miles per hour (250 km/h). The AIR ONE allows owners to take off and land on any flat surface with a 250kg payload, including a yacht deck. AIR ONE’s collapsible wings and compact size make it a viable flight option for a considerable portion of the yachting community.
