Programme description

In March 2022 electric aircraft dealer FlyOnE announced a collaboration with eVTOL maker AIR “to facilitate the delivery of 25 two-seater aircraft”, reported a press release.

FlyOnE announced: “The rollout of mobile water landing pads with aircraft recharge capabilities as well as partnerships with key airfields to operate recharge nodes for existing electric fixed-wing aircraft on the Lilypad Elevate electric aviation network with operations beginning this month!”

Korum Ellis, Founder of FlyOnE, commented, “FlyOnE is excited to be working with AIR to bring the world’s first metropolitan eVTOL network to Perth as early as 2025.” He continued, “With our unique Lilypad landing and charging system, the AIR ONE personal two-seater electric VTOL can access a variety of waterfront destination sites and airport locations up to 100 kilometres away.” Adding, “In addition, existing fixed-wing electric aircraft available now can access select runway sites on this same network from March 2022.”

Key aspects of the partnership include:
• Some of the world’s earliest delivery of recreational Electric VTOL aircraft being allocated to FlyOnE clients in Australia.
• Enabling the world’s first International standard AS6968 EVTOL network of charge nodes and metro eVTOL self-piloted air travel to be established and operated in Perth.
• Construction of the network and operation and training around the aircraft piloting and maintenance will generate jobs in western Australia, stimulate employment and drive unique tourism opportunities.
• Connecting new and existing tourism destination sites with point to point self-piloted electric air travel enables these sites to offer a client experience second to none anywhere else in the world.
