Dawn Of A Revolution In Urban Mobility – First Manned Flight With The Volocopter VC200
The premiere of manned flights with the worldâs first certified Multicopter, e-voloâs Volocopter VC200, marks the beginning of a new era in urban mobility. For the first time humansâ dream of personal flight as a daily routine becomes attainable. As such it not only offers more widespread use in conventional aircraft domains, but brings us another step closer to air taxi services and entire transportation systems in the third dimension.
âThe flight was totally awesomeâ pilot Alexander Zosel said right after his landing. âI got in, we did the pre-checks for what felt like maybe 20 seconds, and after that Iâd already got the all-clear for flying. I didnât wait long, I simply pushed the lever upward and the Volocopter simply sprung upward in a single bound.
It is definitely a sublime feeling to lift off, fly the first few meters, and then actually take my hand off the joystick and think that, yeah, itâs really as if Iâm standing on the ground, and then I look down and there are 20-25 meters beneath me. So itâs definitely unbelievable what weâve achieved here. Itâs seriously unbelievable!â
