Volocopter receives national approvals for production and pilot training

Volocopter has announced it has received the German Federal Aviation Office’s (Luftfahrtbundesamt or LBA) Production Organisation Approval (POA) extension that allows the production of the VoloCity aircraft. The company also reports it is now an Approved Training Organisation (ATO)  under the German Federal aviation office (Luftfahrtbundesamt) through its subsidiary, Volocopter Air Services.

The POA extension applies to the two new Volocopter production and hangar facilities in Bruchsal, Germany, that were first unveiled in April 2023 while the flight training certification allows Volocopter to train pilots for its future products.

Volocopter received EASA’s DOA in 2019, followed by the initial POA in 2021 with the acquisition of DG Flugzeugbau. The new POA extension lists specifically the approved production of an eVTOL in the POA’s scope of work, from prototyping to serial manufacturing.

The Approved Training Organisation certification allows Volocopter to deliver training towards pilot licences. The approval was handed over with zero findings in the final audit, according to the company.

“As part of the approval, the company will now work on the transition to finalize the training program for its electric VoloCity aircraft in close cooperation with the German Federal Aviation office.”
