AIR develops 'fly-by-intent' control systems
Friday, 5 November 2021
The AIR ONE will feature aerospace innovation alongside automotive manufacturing techniques to enable mass production and accelerate integration of advanced air mobility into society.

AIR has unveiled its debut vehicle, AIR ONE, and it is now accepting pre-orders. AIR ONE is a two-seater eVTOL aircraft designed for individual consumer ownership that offers a range of 110 miles on a single charge at speeds up to 155 mph, with a flight time of one hour. AIR ONE prioritises everyday practicality for consumers with collapsible wings for easy parking and its ability to take off from or land on any flat surface.

AIR says its 'fly by intent' software manages complex functions and navigation, so that usage isn't restricted to highly skilled pilots and trained professionals. Additional safety features include an AI enabled monitoring system which does frequent inspections of the vehicle and eliminates checklists for riders to ensure safety.

Based on technology and manufacturing techniques from the automotive and aerospace industries, AIR ONE is designed from inception to be a safe and practical vehicle that adheres to aerospace standards and regulations. To this end, AIR is currently working with the FAA to obtain G1 certification.

“The future of mobility is in the sky, but to get there we need to build consumer confidence in eVTOLs as a legitimate mode of everyday transport and develop vehicles on a mass-scale to bring that vision to life,” says AIR's CEO and cofounder Rani Plaut.
