urban air mobility company volocopter has unveiled the voloconnect, a new four-seat aircraft designed for connecting suburbs to cities. the new electrical vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL) has been designed to complement the company’s existing family of aircraft for the intra-city mission. 


by being able to travel longer distances, the voloconnect extends volocopter’s UAM ecosystem coverage to the suburbs. the new aircraft will be integrated into the company’s existing portfolio and its distinctive hybrid lift and push design is expected to achieve certification within the next five years.

voloconnect is equipped with a hybrid lift and push design to transport up to four passengers electrically on routes of 100km at a speed of 180 km/h, with a top speed of around 250km/h. the compact aircraft layout is stable and highly efficient during forward flight while maintaining a low stall speed. as the newest addition to volocopter’s aircraft family, the voloconnect continues with volocopter’s track record of developing high-tech, electric aircrafts for the urban mission.
