ASKA On The Fly: New timeshare service “for eVTOL drive & fly vehicle consumers”

By Chris Stonor

The Californian-based, ASKA, announced last week the “On The Fly timeshare services” for its eVTOL vehicle designed for consumers, reports a press release.

The air mobility company is starting to accept applications for this service describing it as “a flexible and super-easy way to drive & fly… offering the freedom to choose when they want to drive and fly.” The company says it is open to a limited number of customers in the first few years of production.

This special limited membership enrolment scheme opened on August 11th at the McCall’s Motorworks Revival Celebrates 30 YEARS! event during the Monterey Car Week.

Previous UAMN Article:

Much interest has been shown during the development of the ASKA vehicle which can be termed “as a proper flying car.” People have the freedom to travel both on the road and in the air to reach their destination.

The four-seater ASKA drives on the road like a car and is capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), as well as short takeoff and landing (STOL), and flies like an aircraft. The release explains, “The private commuter vehicle enables people to live in a quality environment outside urban areas and to quickly and safely travel to the city centre, door to door.”

Naturally, a pilot’s license is required to operate the ASKA which is targeted for delivery in 2026, subject to standard regulatory approval and certification.

Maki Kaplinsky, CoFounder/Chair & COO of ASKA said, “We’re thrilled to introduce ASKA to the luxury aircraft and car community at the McCall’s Motorworks Revival. A number of our pre-order customers are owners of high-end aircraft and cars. ASKA is an exciting, cutting edge addition to their existing collection because it offers the ability to drive and to fly.”

The release continues, “The freedom to drive or fly begins with joining the ASKA Founders Club, a dynamic community that will share ideas, learn about new technology innovations, and explore potential business opportunities in the rapidly emerging air mobility sector.” And goes on, “Founders Club members meet every three to five months, either online or during special events at the ASKA showroom.”

People interested in joining the Founders Club can register at ASKA’s website and place a USD5000 deposit to begin the sales process. This deposit secures their place on the ASKA On The Fly services or the pre-order list. The deposit will be held in an escrow account and is fully refundable after one year.

Founders Club members have the option to choose whether they wish to pre-order ASKA for direct ownership at a price of USD789,000 (with optional financing) or join a membership to use the ASKA On The Fly services. Pre-order and On The Fly customers will be granted the option to receive one share in the capital stock of the company if eligibility requirements are met to comply with securities laws.

Guy Kaplinsky, CoFounder/CEO of ASKA, commented, ”Our new service enables people to enjoy the use of our craft for work, travel or holidays. It is an attractive option for people who are excited about ASKA and want to be a part of air mobility, but are not ready for full ownership.” He continued, ”We manage the services and fleet of ASKAs. Our experts handle the cleaning and maintenance so it is fully serviced and ready to go.”

A web-based support centre will provide 24-hour access to booking information. Customers are to have a choice of using VIP service to deliver ASKA to their home or they can go to a central location to pick up the vehicle. A servicing team handles the cleaning and maintenance so the craft is ready to go.

The new ASKA On The Fly service also offers a financial opportunity to customers who have purchased the craft to recuperate the cost of their investment. They have the option to put their vehicle into the ASKA fleet. The company manages the timeshare vehicle and pays for its use during the period that the customer is not using it. Full-scale flight demonstrations will be taking place in 2022.
