The requirements of civil helicopters and aircraft from the urban air mobility segment are met with the AUTOFLUG Flyweight seat family. The modular concept oﬀers a wide range of equipment variants and options.
Jan-Hendrik Boelens, CTO of Volocopter, said: “In the eVTOL sector, we have to pay even more attention to weight and comfort than is already the case in aviation. In AUTOFLUG, we have gained an experienced partner who understands the requirements of this new market and is prepared to tread new paths together.”
The contract includes the joint development of a wall connection for the seats to make optimum use of the available space in the cabin. It also includes the production and delivery of seats for the VoloCity for the coming years, Volocopter’s vision of urban transport in the air.
Martin Kroell, Managing Partner at AUTOFLUG, added: “We are extremely delighted that we can actively enrich this pioneering concept with our seats. The strength of the product design, but also the innovative spirit of both companies, are a good basis for the collaboration, with this initial contract hopefully just being the start.”
