AIR Announces First Successful eVTOL Hover Flight

AIR, creator of eVTOL (electric vertical take off and landing) aircraft, has announced that its inaugural vehicle AIR ONE has successfully completed its first hover test. Weighing 2.2lb, the full-scale AIR ONE prototype took flight in Megiddo, northern Israel, at approximately 7am, Israel Standard Time. The vehicle completed multiple hovers after safely lifting off, and before ultimately returning to the ground, exhibiting optimal performance in a stable flight envelope in what is a further success for the pioneering technology.

All systems of the aircraft proved fully successful in providing maximum control and stability, whilst also demonstrating the energy use of the AIR ONE during the flight matching exactly as was predicted, thus proving its ability to execute expected performance metrics.

"It was truly awe-inspiring to watch AIR ONE lift off the ground for the first time. We've been on this upward journey for nearly five years and cannot wait for the public to join us on this ride," said Rani Plaut, CEO & Co-founder of AIR. "This momentous milestone secures AIR's spot as a market leader in the personal air mobility space, making the thrill of flight achievable on a daily basis. We look forward to continued growth as we launch into the next phase of development."
