VI&E Solutions sets infrastructure/SAF and hydrogen for 40-seat eVTOL LYTE Aviation’s SkyBus in US

Volatus Infrastructure & Energy Solutions and UK-based eVTOL manufacturer LYTE Aviation have formed a partnership to fulfil the infrastructure requirements for all types of eVTOL technologies. VI&E Solutions says it will expand its refuelling options to include its universal multi-modal electric charging station, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and hydrogen to be able to service all types of hybrid and fully electric VTOLs.

“Advanced Air Mobility will come in many different shapes, sizes and means of propulsion — including bold, game-changing designs like the LA-44 SkyBus. As infrastructure and energy providers we believe in the importance of accommodating as many designs as possible so that eVTOL operators have more safety divert options available for landing,” said Dan Sloat, VI&E Solutions CEO.

“LYTE Aviation is pioneering a 40-seat eVTOL, a heavyweight passenger mass transit vertical take-off and landing aircraft branded the SkyBus LA-44. It is also designing a cargo variant, SkyTruck LA-44C, offering a payload capacity of 4.5 tons” according to a press release. “With its tandem tilt-wing technology, power will come from hybrid-hydrogen-electric turboprops and electric engines. The SkyBus is an ideal solution to extend current regional aviation solutions in the near future for passenger and cargo transit. Owing to the use of proven and existing technologies available today, LYTE Aviation is estimating entering the market within five to six years.

“Founded in 2021, Volatus Infrastructure & Energy Solutions is connecting communities with eVTOL infrastructure technology to ensure society is ready for the future. VI&E Solutions offers three modular vertiport designs and charging stations for electric vehicles across all mediums: air, land, and sea.”
