In the fields of sustainability and mobility, we know that the future will be about creating new integrated locomotion solutions focused on the development of a sustainable economy, improving the quality of life in the world and on our planet. This challenge is collective, and we are collaborating with one of the leaders of this revolution, namely Eve. Partnering with a company like Eve is a great privilege, ”said Bianca Senna, CEO of the Senna brand.

Eve aims to stimulate the co-creation and re-imagining of UAM in a sustainable way, thinking not only about the environment but also about the benefits to society. The partnership with Senna Brand reinforces this positioning and will inspire new generations for the future of mobility and accessibility.

German urban air mobility (UAM) pioneer Volocopter conducted a public crewed test flight in front of hundreds of spectators at Incheon Airport in Seoul, South Korea. As part of K-UAM Confex 2021, the 5-minute flight test covered approximately 3 kilometers and reached a maximum altitude of 50 meters and a maximum speed of 45 km / h. A week earlier, on November 11, the air taxi company carried out a public test flight at Gimpo International Airport. It was the first-ever public test flight with a crew of an electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) air taxi in the Republic of Korea.

Florian Reuter, CEO of Volocopter, said: “We are very happy to have flown our air taxi in South Korea not once, but twice last week, which is great for raising awareness of urban air mobility. . As a new mode of transportation, air taxis complement existing mobility solutions and allow people to reach their destinations faster and more comfortably in mega-cities such as Seoul.
