Volocopter is the global leader in the development of electrical vertical take-off and landing multicopters (eVTOL) as air taxis to help congested cities to address their increasing mobility challenges. The technical platform is extremely flexible and permits piloted, remote controlled, and fully autonomous flight. In addition, the unique design offers unprecedented degrees of safety based on the high level of redundancy in critical components.
As early as 2011 the company made aviation history, launching the manned flight of the world’s first purely electrical multicopter. Since then, the start-up has set new milestones: in 2016 Volocopter obtained provisional licensing for a two-seater Volocopter from the German aviation authorities, and showcased the first ever autonomous flight of an urban air taxi in Dubai in 2017. Daimler and Intel are among the investors in the company. By participating in the start-up, Lab1886 will support the development of innovative mobility products and services and also gain insights into the new mobility segment in the third dimension. In short: the dream of driving becomes the dream of flying.
