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. For urban air mobility to become commonplace, aircraft and their operators will need to be able to address crucial concerns: performance, noise, downwash, and safety in both design and operation. In this essay I'll discuss our approach to these concerns at Dufour Aerospace.
