Australian company AMSL Aero is getting ready to begin flight tests on what it claims to be the “world’s most efficient eVTOL design, and one of the most affordable,” reports newatlas.com. This box-wing called the Vertiia, can impressively travel up to 620 miles on a tank of hydrogen, carrying five people or 1,100 lb of cargo at a cruise speed of 186 mph.
First emerging from stealth mode late last year, AMSL “has a unique design”, a prototype nearly ready to fly and a target date of 2024 to achieve certification and begin production. This small company has achieved a great deal on a tiny budget and is raising a further round of funding to finance flight testing and pre-production.
Below is an interview with company co-founder, Andrew Moore, carried out by journalist Loz Blaine, to learn more about the Vertiia and how it can stand out in a growing emerging eVTOL air taxi market.
