Overair, a company in advanced air mobility (AAM) and developer of all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, today announced a new strategic collaboration with leading private jet management company fixed-base operator (FBO), and infrastructure developer Clay Lacy Aviation to establish emission-free, ultra-quiet electric aviation operations throughout the Southern California region.
“The companies will work together to develop a concept of operations for Overair’s Butterfly eVTOL aircraft, which begins testing in early 2024 following the completion of Overair’s first full-scale prototype last year, as well as other advanced aircraft” according to the press release. “Overair and Clay Lacy plan to develop electric charging facilities at Clay Lacy’s FBO locations at John Wayne Airport in Orange County and Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles. Finally, the partnership will explore the establishment of new vertiport facilities and services across Southern California.
“Per the agreement, Clay Lacy will focus on the development of charging infrastructure and aircraft operation logistics. Overair will bring expertise in aircraft integration, maintenance, certification, user and vertiport software integration, flight path planning, and public awareness building to the collaboration.
“This partnership is the latest of several AAM infrastructure initiatives announced by Overair, including partnerships with India’s JetSetGo, the City of Arlington, and DFW International Airport in North Texas, as well as several agreements with South Korean partners.”
