By Chris Stonor

Airbus Helicopters has uploaded a film on to Linkedin this week, of its City Airbus in flight. The four-minute demo sees the four-seater craft fly at an altitude of 20 metres.

Andreas Thellmann, Project Executive of Airbus’s UAM division, said, “Our full-scale UAM Demonstrator took off carrying 2,310 kg, the highest take-off weight of a full electric VTOL Aircraft with a distributed drive system.” Adding, “Thanks to all team members for this great achievement!”
