Paris 2023: Ascendance announces new suppliers and more purchase intentions

Ascendance Flight Technologies has signed large-scale technical partnership agreements with players in the aeronautics industry for the development and industrialisation of its two solutions: hybrid eVTOL platforms ATEA and STERNA.

The company has also announced that it has signed 110 new Letters of Intent to Purchase with two future clients: Green Aerolease and a soon to be announced operator, bringing its order book to 505 purchase orders from international operators.

Solvay and Airborne will be working together to develop the prototype aircraft’s aerostructure and prepare the required materials.  Solvay has significant expertise in the development of innovative lightweight composite materials based on resins and polymers to create efficient, lighter and more sustainable aircraft.  Airborne specialises in the design and production of composite structures, tooling and industrialisation solutions.

Evolito will be Ascendance Flight Technologies’ key partner in supplying the battery for the prototype aircraft. The battery is one of the major components of any hybrid-electric propulsion system. Evolito will supply a prototype battery based on technical specifications defined by Ascendance Flight Technologies.

As well as the signature of a strategic partnership with a major aeronautic Group, still not disclosed, that will be shortly announced.

Ascendance’s life size flying prototypeis scheduled to fly in 2024. “Those production, assembly and flight test activities will support the industrialisation of Ascendance’s serial aircraft, which is scheduled to enter into service in 2027,” said the company.

A strategic partnership has also been set up with Sigma Air Mobility (a Luxaviation affiliate) to develop networks of eVTOL routes to cover regional distances and launch Decentralised Aviation by connecting regional cities and communities with less access than the major capitals on specific elected region

At the same time, the company has signed a partnership agreement with Latvian airline airBaltic to examine and integrate eVTOL aircraft such as Atea into the airline’s future operations.
