Fleet management and air mobility company EVfly has signed a letter of intent and will pay deposits for the Axe by Skyfly electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft with delivery expected in 2024.
EVfly announced in a press release that it intends to purchase three Axe aircraft, with an option for five more. The company then intends to first start its operation in Thailand, followed by the rest of Asia, to demonstrate the potential utility of eVTOL aircraft, lay the groundwork for future commercial operations, and begin training the next generation of eVTOL pilots.
Although the Axe is mainly intended for use as a private aircraft and has not been designed as a commercial air taxi, EVfly says that it is well-suited to the flight training market thanks to its two seat, side-by-side cockpit configuration, its double set of wings, low purchase price, low operating costs and easy-to-master flight characteristics.
