We at Volocopter are pioneers in the development of electrical air taxis that
take off and land vertically (eVTOLs). We are bringing urban air mobility to
life by introducing our air taxis and drones as an electric addition to
current transportation options in megacities worldwide. Our aim is to offer
affordable on-demand air taxi services and save people time by flying them
safely to their destination. In 2011, we performed the first-ever crewed
flight of a purely electrical multicopter and have since showcased numerous
public flights with our full-scale Volocopters (www. volocopter.com).
Our custom-built Electric Propulsion System consisting of state-of-the-art
battery, power distribution and controlled electric motors are key to making
Volocopter's products extremely safe to fly. With your specific experience in
the development of electrical system for aviation or in integrating electric
propulsion components into mobility products, you contribute directly to the
certification of this uniquely safe and simple flight experience. As an
integral part of our Energy Storage Unit (ESU) component development team,
you ensure that the proper system development processes are followed by the
battery and power distribution teams.
