Moya eVTOL successfully performed its first flight.
Tuesday, 5 December 2023

On November 15, the sky over the SDA4 airfield on the outskirts of São José dos Campos-SP was the stage for a pioneering event that could transform the logistics scenario. The Moya eVTOL, developed by Brazilian company Moya Aero, performed its first flight, marking the beginning of a flight testing phase that anticipates its entry into service in 2026.

The high-capacity cargo drone prototype has successfully taken off, achieving a remarkable feat under the command of Alexandre Zaramela, CEO of Moya Aero and designer of the eVTOL. "Even though I have already experienced other first flights throughout my career, it is always a thrill to see the vehicle fly as planned." He explains that we are currently experiencing saturation in logistics systems and that the Moya eVTOL has the potential to combine sustainability and solutions for different markets.

The Moya eVTOL was designed to enhance logistics services and solutions for agriculture, featuring a bold design that allows adaptations for different missions. With a payload capacity of 200 kg and a range of 300 km, the vehicle will not only contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions. It will also bring a significant decrease in operating costs when compared to traditional helicopters.

Moya Aero has already secured several Letters of Intent (LOIs) to purchase more than 100 eVTOL units, consolidating its position as a key player in Brazil's future air cargo transportation. With the first successful flight, Moya Aero is now preparing for a series of rigorous tests during the certification phase, envisioning a horizon where Moya eVTOL will become essential in the positive transformation of the logistics sector in Brazil and beyond.
