Volocopter developing technological demonstrators

Volocopter has forged a partnership with Grab, the on-demand transportation, food delivery, and Payment Company, to have a study on the possibilities of an air taxi service in Southeast Asia. The Memorandum of Understanding between the two companies will explore the potential deployment of services related to air taxis in some of the major cities.

This is the groundwork that might set up a road for some flight tests in the future to decide on the routes for this service. That is pretty far in the future as the study is on the way and results of the study might take years to fructify. The German startup, Volocopter is been involved in the development of technological demonstrators that can land and take-off vertically. The development work is in progress since 2011 and recently showed its aircraft in Singapore.

The partnership will enable the development of urban air mobility

The company showcased the world’s first full-scale air taxi ‘VoloPort’last year in October. This was done in partnership with Skyport to develop a commercially viable model for urban use. Grab looking at Volocopter and its aircraft to make its vision of better transportation for all come true.

Chris Yeo, CEO of Grab said, “This partnership will enable Volocopter to further develop urban air mobility solutions that are relevant for Southeast Asian commuters so they can decide on their preferred journey option based on their budgets, time constraints, and other needs, in a seamless way.” Volocoptor is looking at Singapore as one of the potential markets for the initial launch of its services.
