We are hiring:
We have more experience in manned electric flight than most others worldwide. With aEro 1, we've shown that we have what it takes to bring an electric aircraft into the air. We aren’t waiting for technology to improve and catch up with our designs - instead we’re designing fast, safe aircraft with today’s state of the art.
With over 30 years of experience in Swiss commercial helicopter operations, we understand the real world requirements of VTOL aircraft. This expertise is backed up by close scientific collaborations with ETH Zurich and ZHAW. We are building aircraft for rugged operation in harsh environments. Our patented combination of proven aerodynamic concepts with the latest technology makes our aircraft rock solid with unparalleled performance.
