The Volocopter VC200 redefines the helicopter. Learning to pilot vertical takeoff and landing now requires fewer costly and time consuming flying lessons. Volocopter revolutionary e-multicopter will provide clean, energy-efficient transportation.
The Volocopter combines the joy of flying with the highest levels of safety. And not only that – thanks to its reduced mechanics it is low maintenance and extremely easy to operate.
“The pilot merely has to command direction via a joystick and the 2-seater, ultralight aircraft glides into the desired position. In this process our comprehensive redundancy concept ensures a level of safety that immediately compensates a failure of the drive units and forgives a large number of flying errors. Moreover, we have already developed the prototypes of the VC200 with environmentally-friendly rechargeable battery technology,” said Volocopter’s team.
The revolutionary safety & propulsion system of the Volocopter will serve as a platform for additional aviation systems in the future. It is the perfect platform for both vertical takeoff manned aircraft and heavy-duty drones. The flight concept of the Volocopter facilitates piloted, remote-controlled or even completely autonomous air operations. This creates the potential for many diverse applications.
The modular flight systems can be developed in various sizes. Depending on client’s requirements, a purely electric or hybrid form of propulsion can be used to power the aircraft.
The Volocopter can be operated with a pilot, using remote controls or completely autonomously. It allows the Volocopter to serve a broad range of purposes and solve many unique problems like mobility concept for transporting people/mass transit, platform for physical measurement devices, autonomous farming of fields in the precision agriculture sector, yacht tender, pleasure rides for amusement, recreation or sightseeing, air-taxi and so on.
