AutoFlight and EvFly announce 205 aircraft order
AutoFlight has announced a 205 aircraft order with mobility start-up EVFLY.
The order covers both Prosperity I passenger and Prosperity Cargo Aircraft. EVFLY says it will operate the first 10 AutoFlight aircraft in the Middle East.
“This is a fantastic deal and illustrates just a few of the many geographies that will benefit from eVTOLs in both cargo and personal mobility,” said Omer Bay-Yohay, president AutoFlight. “The team at EVFLY has a proven track record in successfully managing freight and cargo businesses and we’re delighted to be partnering with them in what could be one of the first commercial eVTOL operations in the world.”
EVFLY is a start-up founded by Yannick Erbs, a cargo airline entrepreneur. It has also announced orders SkyFly.
“AutoFlight has a proven aircraft, as demonstrated by their world record flight and thousands of additional flight test miles,” said Erbs. “They are a natural choice for EVFLY, as both parties will bring expertise to the nascent eVTOL cargo and passenger markets.”
