Dufour aEro 2 Design Philosophy

Electric VTOL aircraft are no longer a dream: they are flying today. "If" is no longer a question - only when and how they will reach the market. Electric propulsion and other technological advances make these aircraft much safer and much more efficient than conventionally powered aircraft. Our aEro 2 design is derived from 30 years of operating today's most common VTOL aircraft, helicopters, and from our experience building and flying electric aircraft.
