Pilots are crucial to public confidence in eVTOLs, investors believe

Leading global professional investors expect public confidence in electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft to grow as the industry continues to focus on using qualified pilots for flights, according to global research from New Horizon Aircraft.

“The study with investors in Japan, the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia found nearly three out of four (73%) believe public support for eVTOLs will grow over the next three years with 15% anticipating a dramatic increase in public confidence” according to the press release.

“Just 6% of the private equity, venture capital and family office investors questioned believe public confidence in the sector will decline as the launch of the first services comes closer to reality. Around 22% do not see any change in public confidence happening or did not express an opinion.

“Horizon’s research with senior executives at leading investment firms responsible for more than USD1.787 trillion assets under management found the key factor in boosting public support is the growing acceptance within the industry that services will need to have qualified pilots.

“More than three out of four (76%) identified the use of pilots as the key to guaranteeing increased public confidence while 68% say more successful trials of passenger and drone services will be important. Around 65% point to more news about successes in the sector and 56% want evidence of regulatory improvements with 36% hoping for the endorsement of the sector by major companies and investors.”
