Volocopter explains it all
If you know us even a little bit you’ll know that we’re firm believers in being transparent: one look at our Careers page and you’ll see precisely what we mean. We want to make our intentions clear to all those who join or are thinking of joining our mission. And our approach to the VoloIQ is no different. That’s why we’ve come up with this short video. In the same way that fun teacher explained complex concepts at school, we got a friend to tell you how it all works, in a way that’s fun and – even if we do say so ourselves – visually stunning. (Not as stunning as, say, our VoloCity air taxi, but a pretty close second nonetheless.)
What the video offers is a glimpse into our tomorrow: projections reveal that around two-thirds of people will be living in cities come 2050, so the plan is for our entire UAM ecosystem to make their lives easier. Think of it like this: instead of miles upon miles of congested streets, we’ll shift many commuters, tourists, and other public transportation users to the skies by offering a convenient and sustainable alternative to the current status quo.
Our UAM ecosystem approach is thus doubly beneficial: as much as we’d like to be the masters (and mistresses) of the (sub)urban skies, it’s pretty clear that they won’t belong to us and us alone – in fact, we’ll probably be sharing them with a few other eVTOL companies. What we can say for sure is that our UAM ecosystem – and the VoloIQ as its digital reinforcement – will allow all our eVTOLs to zip safely and sustainably across the heavens.
But in the interests of not giving too much away, do give the vid a watch once you’re done reading this. We promise we won’t “drone” on …
